The Highs and Lows of Motherhood Devotional
Updated: Jan 2, 2021
Highs and lows of Motherhood...
Micah no no buddy 🤯. But why!!!! Micah, because Mommy can’t handle anymore loudness! I need some quiet.
But Mommy I just want...
Micah......Mommy loves you so much. I want you to have a good day at preschool today....(few seconds later) As I look over at him with his sunglasses on....Why are you so
’ cute?!!! 😁
Micah smiles and I can’t help but give countless amounts of kisses all over that face. 😚
He goes off to preschool for the day after this moment and then I go off to my morning, hoping I am capturing my time with him in the best way possible. Hoping I am taking full advantage of this age.
Bye bye Micah, have a good day buddy! 🥺😥
(Driving away) Ahhh...I am so ready for this 2.5 hour break of peace and quiet 🤫🥱🤗🤔
5 minutes down the road...I’m missing him.
Get home, put my keys on the counter, feeling like I need some guidance, a plan, something to do, or maybe just silence, time with God, time in peace, time to myself. I don’t know what I need...help me God.
Can you relate?
Dear God, meet me in the stillness and in the silence of my days, where my mind wants to wander and my heart yearns for more. Meet me in my van as I pull away from dropping Micah off at preschool, unsure of my path ahead or what my day may hold. Spirit be my Shepard. Lord, prepare a way for me. Make my paths straight. Help me lead and live a life of fullness and moments I can be proud of. Help me walk in the light and may the Spirit of Christ shine through me. In Jesus name, Amen.
