If you are a mom, at one point or another you have probably blamed yourself for something…. you didn’t spend enough time with your son or daughter… you should have said the right thing… you should be like other mom’s who________ (you fill in the blank).
Now sometimes the Holy Spirit is genuinely convicting you of sin towards your son or daughter and you need to change your ways. Other times it is the enemy who is trying to make you live up to the “law” of what you “should” be as a mom.
Galatians 3:5 in the New Living Translation says, “… does God give you the Holy Spirit and work miracles among you because you obey the law? Of course not! It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ”
Part of the way you can live out God’s word in your daily life is to cut yourself some slack… Trust the Holy Spirit to help you to do the best you can and then watch Him work a miracle in your son or daughter’s life.
