This entry today is inspired by a line I got from a blog post titled, “Learning through Motherhood.” It says, “Motherhood is too demanding to attempt without a deep connection to Christ.”
It would be an understatement to say that being a mother is hard. Motherhood will challenge you in every possible way–physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. There are no days off in motherhood, there are no vacations, no breaks; and surely on our own, we will find ourselves feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. That is why we need Jesus more than ever in our lives. For it is only through his strength that we will be able to fulfill our duties as mothers and find lasting joy in motherhood. All mothers need Christ.
I understand that finding some alone time can be quite hard especially if your children are still young, but we really should devote some time to commune with the Lord–draw strength and inner peace from him. In Philippians 4:13 it says, “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
