God's Purpose in Your Motherhood
Motherhood is physically grueling, emotionally exhausting and intellectually numbing. We are moms, we know each of these challenges firsthand. One hardship we often overlook as moms is the challenge it makes to our sense of purpose.
We need to find our purpose in the good works we do for God and the people we impact for Christ. Our ultimate purpose isn’t to love our children, our friends, or even our husband—it is to love God. Godly motherhood is a product of fulfilling our purpose: loving God more by knowing Him better.
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment” (Matthew 22:37–38).
Dear Mommies, we are so much more than the summation of our children. His purpose for your motherhood is that you would know Him better, love Him more, depend completely on His strength, and understand His faithfulness.
God made you a mom to draw you deeper into His love. Raising godly children is a gracious result of your deepening relationship with God.
