Ohhhh Mama!

Have you ever found yourself measuring up to other people?

As a mom, I know I have. I often find myself comparing my mothering styles to other mothers, only to feel bad about how I do things as a mother. I am in a family full of new moms, and most of them have the ability to stay home more with their babies, and I work.

For a long time I beat myself up about it because at one point I thought my oldest wasn't as advanced educationally as her other cousins. HA! Funny right, since most of my readers know that I am an educator.

I found myself exhausted when I got home. I've always been taught, "The woman is the keeper of the house." But how does that fit into todays standards when woman work full time job just like a man? Let's keep it real, it doesn't, and what works for one household doesn't work for another.

I would continuously hear, great positive things about the other mothers in my family and I would strive to be like them because I would never hear, "E, you're doing a great job." I constantly beat myself up about it.

"She dresses herself with strength.." came to my mind.

As a mom I would beat myself up all because I wasn't hearing what I wanted to hear? All along my savior was telling everything I needed to hear. As cliche as it sounds he's the only voice that matters.

We forget who we are sometimes and we drown out God's word. When I feel like beating myself up about something so earthly, I crack open my Bible and God reminds me of who I am, and that I am doing a great job. Proverbs 31 is a reminder of who I am.

When you're beating yourself up, open up your word and let its sweet, heavenly words fill your spirit.
