Whose Voice Are You Listening To?
There are two possible drivers on this motherhood course–Mom Guilt or you, the mom God created you to be.
Mom Guilt shows up in a few ways. She can speak through others, making you compare yourself to them. Or she can speak through the worst of your own internal dialogue. She would love nothing more than to make you feel like you’ll never measure up.
When you focus, instead, on the fruit of spirit, you can let God’s voice speak louder than Mom Guilt’s. You can reclaim that driver’s seat.
“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” – Galatians 5:22-23
It just takes a shift in perspective. When you see those fruit as more than just words and connect them to what’s happening in your own life, you can let God breathe into those situations–not Mom Guilt.
It’s hard though, right? Especially when you’re consoling the fourth meltdown of the day or rushing to the store to buy supplies for the project that’s due tomorrow that your kid didn’t tell you about until five minutes ago.
It’s a fight. But you can train your brain to look for the good in every scenario, rather than giving Mom Guilt the opportunity to rear her ugly head.
