At times when God speaks, it’s a still small voice…sometimes even a whisper. And it’s at times like these that He invites us to be still and know that He is God (Psalms 46:10).
Join me as I share with you God Whispers that have sustained, strengthened, and encouraged me on my journey to be the mom and wife God wants me to be. These whispers bring encouragement for the tired mama.

As a mom, it’s very easy to fall into the “comparison” game and into the rut of “I wish”es.

I wish I could do as many crafts with my only child. Mommy X does so much with her 3 kids

I wish I could homeschool my children but I don’t have the enthusiasm, patience, or gift of teaching as Mommy G

I wish I was as good a homemaker as Mommy K. She’s Betty Crocker, Martha Stewart and Ms. Green Fingers all rolled into one.

I wish I could juggle family, work, blogging, and fun time with my friends the way Mommy Z does.

I wish. I wish. I wish.

And before we know it, we’ve burrowed ourselves into a pile of “nothingness” and have dipped our toes into the pool of “no self-worth whatsoever.”

 

That’s exactly the place God does not want you to get comfortable in.

It’s not what you were created for.

He created you for a purpose in this world a purpose that no other person can fulfill for your children.

No, not even Mommy X, Mommy G, Mommy K or Mommy Z.

You may not be the ideal mom you want to be but with His Grace, you will be the world’s best mom to your children.

You are placed in a specific circle in this world to impact that circle with the person God created you to be.

Stop comparing yourself to others and remember

in His Eyes and the eyes of your family

You are a mom beyond compare!.

I know it’s tiring and sometimes fatigue can cause you to start doubting your capabilities as a mom.

Remember, what God says about you, in the Bible.

You are not alone.

You are brave.

You have peace.

You ARE chosen.

When thoughts of negativity come up, and when you start doubting who you are as a mom, turn those negative declarations into prayers, and instead declare God’s Word over those thoughts and believe what He says about you.

I know it’s hard. We need physical reminders. 

Use these prayers and Scriptures to encourage you daily.

God’s Word transforms us and allows us to be the mom He wants us to be.

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

(Psalm 139:14)

  1. Beautiful post! Sometimes it’s hard not to compare but this is a great reminder that we are each our kids best mommy.

  2. That is very true and well said! I wish I could be like all them at times too but I do my best and my boys love me for that. For example: Today my son was at school and I was home sick but decided to make him a cake. not feeling well, I burnt the bottom, he scrapes the top and said it is great!

  3. Beautiful post! Thank you for this – this is something all mommies need to be reminded of. This is such a blessing!

  4. yes, You have to parent your children the best way you know how, and know that you are the best parent for YOUR child.

  5. What a fantastic post. It’s so hard not to compare ourselves to others but we just have to know that we are who we are meant to be.

  6. Thank you for sharing. I think that most children find what they need in their parents. It might be challenging for both the parent and the child at first but they learn and grow together.

  7. I do pretty well at this but at times I feel the fingers of jealousy and discontent reaching out to me. Your philosophy is a good one!

  8. This is beautiful! I have so many ‘wishes’ as a mommy but I try not to stress or dwell on them too much. As long as we all do our best 🙂
