What's That Quote? #12

I believe EVERY mother needs to hear this!

As a Christian mother, it is hard. We have so much to learn, do, teach, and remember. How do we do it all?
Day in and day out we continue to do our "job".
We have to be completely responsible for another human being. It is not a part time gig! It literally is probably the only job that is 24/7
We are constantly doing things for them, with them, around them. Yes, around them. Even when we aren't doing it directly. You know the saying "Monkey see, monkey do"?
That's it. They will repeat it. Usually, the bad stuff we wish they wouldn't. Why? I have no clue. Million dollar question.
And, even when they aren't with us...we have to constantly be watching out for ourselves. Our health and safety, so that we can go home to them.
A mother's mind is never at rest.
I know I am a constant worrier(working on that).
I am continuously thinking, praying, worrying about my babies. I even do this with children that aren't biologically mine! Siblings, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends' babies. By the way, anyone under the age of 25 years old is a baby to me.

I don't know how mother's can do any of this job without God!
I know I still struggle with giving control to God. I pray and try to let go but it is a tough one. 
How do I know what is MY responsibility and what I should just let go of?
Well, I pray...A Lot!
We all what to do our best. Be the best at this mommin' job.
I strive everyday to remember to give praise to God for these most precious gifts. My babies are my whole world. They are my reason and my soul.
No, I'm not perfect. Yes, I mess up. And my children know that.
They also know...I hope, that I love than more than any other human on this Earth and that I try my hardest everyday to make sure they have all they need. I give them the possible. I trust my Lord to give them what is impossible for me.

I have a prayer.
My own personal prayer that I pray every night. Not word for word, but it is my own way of asking God to handle the impossible.
Lord, I come to you and ask that you be with my children always. 
I pray for their health. Physical, mental, and spiritual. That you heal whatever ails them and restore them as only you can.
I pray for their happiness. That you show them the blessings only you can. That their souls cling to you for true happiness.
I pray for their safety. That you be with them and guide them in their days. Keep them from harm and hatred. Show them the true path and keep them from harm.
Lastly, I pray that they always know that they are loved. Not only by us here on Earth but by You. That their soul is loved and wanted by you more than even I could ever love them.
In Jesus' name I pray this. Amen.
I am a true believer in the power of prayer. As a mother some days that is my greatest comfort. Knowing that I have done the possible. I prayed!

"As a mother, my job is to take care of the possible and trust God with the impossible."
