Day 1 THIS FEELS OVERWHELMING
I can totally relate to Sherry’s story in this lesson. I remember leaving the hospital with my daughter thinking, “They are actually letting me leave with this baby?? Don’t they know that I have no clue what I’m doing??” Seriously I thought surely someone was going to stop us at the door and say “nope you are too young and you don’t know how to be a mom!” But no one stopped me at the door so I had to learn, through the grace of God, how to be a mommy.
I am such a worrier, that is something that God has been helping me with daily because I worry about the smallest things. So, this whole being mommy thing has never come easy for this girl right here!! I’d LOVE to wrap my kids up in bubble wrap before letting them run around and play so that they will never get hurt…is that legal? They are just so brave and I’m not, they are so hyper and I’m not, and they are so stealth when they want to be sneaky!
The good news is that we don’t have to do this alone! God provides all that we need to make it through the day as a mom as long as we will look to Him for solutions and for the grace we need. 2 Chronicles 20:2 says “ For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” We have to keep our eyes on Jesus, keep looking up my friend!
