It’s easy, as a mom, to get bogged down in the details. I lose sight of the main point of it all, to point my kids to Jesus. I get too worried about silly things like the fact that they are, as I type this, eating chicken nuggets for dinner. Again. Or that there is a strange pee-like smell in this house and I can’t figure out where it’s coming from. I stop to pray, only to be sucked into an argument between two of my offspring and all thoughts of holiness and delighting in Christ flying out of my brain in a millisecond. I grow weary and want to just sit and put my feet up and stop trying. I fear that all of the mistakes I make on the daily are just ┬ácompletely screwing my kids up. And then this…

This is what all the hard work is for, friends. Don’t grow weary of doing good. Especially with your children. There are eternal seeds being sewn and the moment will come when you see that they are GETTING it. And beyond this God can use your own children to remind you that you have a Savior who LOVES you and He is the BEST. Don’t lose sight of the good news in the midst of the details. It’s the point of it all.
