Encouragement For When You’re Having a Bad Mom Day

Are you having a bad MOM day? You are tired (of course) and those adorable cherubs that keep saying, “Mom, mom, mom!” all day don’t seem to be listening to instruction very well today.

Actually they aren’t listening at all. They are disobeying. They are hitting each other. They are taking turns crying, yelling, and fussing.

And that is just the first 5 minutes of your day. Repeat and multiply that scenario day after day after day.

AND YOU AS A MOM HAVE HAD IT!

Maybe you wonder if you are even doing a good job being a mom.

Maybe you think that IF you were a good mom, the days would be going better and your small, whiny children would be obedient and not so whiny.

LISTEN, MOMS! There’s a reason that a 320 lb. football linebacker who gets on camera for the first time waves and says, “Hi, Mom!” Moms are extremely and sublimely important!

You need to speak #TRUTH to yourself if you are having a bad mom day.

Here’s some #TRUTH for you today.

Everyday is a new day. “The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:23

“THIS is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24 (emphasis mine)

God has promised to give you wisdom.

 

The Top 10 Reasons Moms Are Important (and of course, there are more than ten.) by Barton Goldsmith, PhD

Barton starts with the fact that your mom gave birth to you and then quickly moves to the fact that most moms provide the emotional backbone and support  for their children.

The Incredible Importance of Mom  by Jill Savage

It’s All About Influence

“The profession of motherhood is all about influence. You and I have an incredible opportunity to influence the next generation by what we do as a mother every day. This is why intentionality is so important during the years that we raise our family. Be intentional about your own healing from life’s hurts. Be intentional about taking care of yourself. Be intentional about investing in your marriage. Be intentional about parenting. Be intentional about homemaking. Intentionality increases influence, and influence is something God asks us to be intentional about. We cannot underestimate the power of mother love, the value of home and the significance of our intentional presence in the home.”

MOMS and KIDS: A relationship of Mutual Happiness

A child’s first source of happiness is his/her mother, and the other way around. This relationship has the strongest bond of mutual happiness.

 

From a College Student:  by Christiana Houser

When it comes down to it, your mom will always be one of the most important people in your life. Respect her, love her, and be there for her the way she is there for you. The bond between a mother and child is one that can never be broken or replicated, so don’t take it for granted. Tell her you love her every day and never let that mother/child bond break.

MOM FRIENDS, PART 3: Is it really that important to have other parent friends?

by Taylor Seely

Companionship, Empathy, a Reminder of your individuality, and Support are all great reasons to have other mom friends.

Tatyana, mother of one:

“They’re someone who can offer advice and be an ear. Someone who knows what you’re going through.”

125 Mother’s Day Quotes

Mother’s Day is the special time of year when you get to celebrate your first best friend and the person you always turn to when you need advice.

 

There is a special role that God gave mothers. Our society has tried to downplay the mother’s pivotal role in their child’s life. Only one thing- we all know that our mothers genuinely made the difference in our lives. And that is the same for your children.

YOU ARE MAKING THE POSITIVE DIFFERENCE FOR THEM TOO.

The Issues vs. The Problem: We Need God’s Help

I think none of us want to be purposefully offensive. But in today’s world, saying the truth is seen as offensive. We still need to speak truth because really, that’s the most loving thing we can do for people.

All people have a sin problem they cannot fix themselves and they need to know that the Lord has provided the solution, getting right with God by accepting Jesus’ sacrifice for their sins. The individual issues only get fixed when hearts get right with God.

Homeschool Christian Mom has a lot to offer you: Homeschooling information, tips for meal planning, child training methods, scheduling and grading suggestions and more!

BUT what is the best thing we can offer you? God’s help.

We can offer the same thing that we have found: God’s help in getting through life. We can share God’s free gift that He offers you. He wants to rescue you from the power of sin and create a right relationship with Him.

The Right Way is Not Easy

If you need to be right with God, you can!

God tells us the following in His Word, the Bible: Man has a sin problem that separates him from God. Sin is anything we do, say or think that is morally wrong.

Sin is the bad things we do: lie, cheat, steal, use God’s name in cursing.  We cannot be smart enough or good enough to overcome sin.

God provides forgiveness for us. God provided His Son, Jesus Christ, to be the perfect sinless sacrifice in the place of our sins when Jesus died on the cross. Jesus was buried. To prove His power over sin, Jesus rose from the dead 3 days later. By accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior from sin, you can be right with God and get to go to His Heaven when you die.

How do you accept this gift from God?

Romans, one of the books in the Bible, in chapter 10 verse 9 explains “because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

The Bible also says in Ephesians 2:8-10 “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

God wrote down His promise so we would know “for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13)  God wants to help you.  He wants you to be saved, forgiven and right with Him.

The Bible is God’s Word. It is a collection of 66 smaller books that shows the unfolding of God’s plan from the beginning. It is a lot of reading, but how wonderful that God wants to communicate with man and help people with their time on earth.

There is a lot of wisdom in the Bible. If you are new to the Bible, I would suggest My Prasso Bible study. This study not only focuses on learning God’s Word, but also how to put God’s wisdom into practice into your life.

Oh that you would ask God to rescue you and change your life!

My own life

has been completely different since I made the personally decision to follow Him. I was running towards trouble because it had disguised itself as “freedom” and “my life” and “independence.”

Who wouldn’t want these things? But God opened my eyes to see that the end of my choices would be much different. “Empty”, “alone”, “addicted” and “used” would have been the reality.

That night that I gave Him my life did not lead me into perfect bliss. Most of my life has been tough everyday fights to do right but now I could win because God was fighting for me! God provides His Spirit to live within me and help me live for Him.  I could not do that before.

God does not promise a life of ease but a life of peace knowing that He is always there to help and take care of me.

Do you have more questions or need clarification? Please feel free to contact us at homeschoolchristianmom@gmail.com. We’d love to rejoice with you in this decision and grow together to be more like Christ.
