Motherhood is physically exhausting, emotionally draining work.
Where can a mother find the strength she needs to serve her family?
From God, who is “able to make all grace abound to you,
so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times,
you may abound in every good work” (2 Cor. 9:8).

My prideful heart want o badly to be Super Mom
and for other moms to think I’m Super Mom.
Sometimes I prefer to glory in things other than God’s grace.
Pride shows up in many forms.
When we’re tempted to revel in the acceptance of others,
we need to draw near to God’s throne of grace.
We can have confidence that God will
hear our prayers, come to our aid, and bolster our hope in Him
because of what Christ has done for us on the cross.
Pride induces us to worry about tomorrow
as though we can control the outcome with our anxiety.
In those hand-wringing moments we need to remember
that God’s grace will still be sufficient tomorrow.
