What Moms Should Do This Holiday Season
Motherhood doesn’t sleep—it is a 24/7 commitment with no breaks and very little thanks. While it isn’t a job, it is an honor, a gift and a responsibility that lasts for a lifetime.
For most moms, the most challenging and busy time of the year begins when school commences and continues into the holiday season. It is when you discover your schedules and endless obligations have created a very underwhelmed soul.
So, how do busy moms do it all so seamlessly?
The Freedom of Grace-Based Living
We weren’t created to do everything or be everything to everyone. Quite simply, we are enough because Christ is enough.
We do ourselves a great disservice when we pretend to have “life” all figured out. Jealously, comparison, envy, and pride arise and try to overpower the gentle whispers of God's grace.
But those insecurities have no power over God’s sufficient and unending grace when we remember to “Be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10).
There is freedom when we let go of our expectations to do it all because we acknowledge doing it all is not possible. We were never meant to be enough of anything. If we were enough and had the capacity to do enough then Jesus’ sacrifice for us was pointless.
Celebrate Christmas by Trusting You Are Enough
Jesus freed us from trying to prove that we are enough (Romans 3:23-25) and he entered into the world to do what we could never do for ourselves (1 Timothy 1:15)
So, this holiday season, slow down and don’t fall into the worldly trappings of trying to keep up and striving to do it all. If you do, you’ll find yourself in a holidaze rather than embracing the joy that comes with the holiday season.
The days are long, but the years are short. The season of life you are experiencing will be over before you know it.
