I’ve wanted to be a mom pretty much my entire life; since the time I WAS a kid, I wanted kids.
But some days my dream-come-true feels more like one of those nightmares where you show up for class completely unprepared.
Do you ever feel this way?
It’s tough enough in the trenches day in and day out, but trying to keep up a facade of having-it-all-together on top?
That’s just insane.
When we choose to carry the load instead of unburdening it on the One who’s already carried it anyway (Jesus)- we lose out on true fulfillment and peace in our God-given role.
Instead of unloading on Him we pile it on...
We vow to “do better” next time.
What if we stopped focusing on the “leaves” for once?
You know, instead of spray-painting the dead ones,
Filling in with some fake ones,
and attempting to force out the occasional sprout…
What if we just are.
What if we just do what trees are meant to do:
Deep into the Father.
Let them spread wide into His endless love.
Feel out the depths of His grace.
What if we soak in His love, letting it nourish us and make us strong, producing pure and lasting fruit that blesses those around us.
What if we rest in His finished work and stop trying to prove ourselves before Him as He whispers,
“You are enough.”
What if we sit back and watch Him do immeasurably more than we could ever ask or think or even begin to fathom in our lives…
Not because we “try harder” or “do better”-
But because we are rooted.
Colossians 2:7 // Ephesians 3:14-21
