narrower not smaller

Being a mom is a gift and such an important role. We all know that. There are plenty of days though, in the midst of daily life when I can forget that. I can feel lonely, feel like a failure as a mom, and it is easy to listen to the lie Satan whispers to me...this job of motherhood isn't important.  It is also easy to feel that my sphere of influence for Christ is minimal or even non existent because I'm "stuck" at home...but that's a lie. I am thankful in times of doubt, Christ brings us encouragement...even before we ask for it. 

 I love this word from Elizabeth Griffin.

"When I became a mom, my life got really narrow. But I believe narrow isn't small. Even though my life is narrower than it was before, God's calling for my life isn't smaller." 

As we start a new week, I hope this encourages you as it has me! 

Happy Monday!

    Mothering is definitely not small!
    It is the most challenging thing I have ever done.
    Thanks for this reminder...
