Okay. I have been thinking about this for awhile and I just have to write about it.
Have you ever thought or said, “I FeeL LiKe I Am NoT a GooD MoM.”?
This statement is front and center right now because recently a couple of my friends have said that very thing to me. These are not people I would ever put into the “bad mom” category. Not for a moment. But due to the MeSsiNeSs Of Life, things haven’t’ been going as planned.
I must admit, I have felt this same thing more times than I can count.
It is in times like this I must remind myself that the enemy of our soul is an accuser. He uses whatever we are doing to leverage it against us.
We leave the dishes in the sink to play with our kids and he accuses us that our house is a disaster and we are lazy. We do the dishes and tell our kids to go play and he tells us we are neglectful of our kids. Never will a day come when he stops accusing because that’s what accusers do – they accuse.
So what is a mom (or dad, wife, friend or any other person for that matter) suppose to do? RuN To YoUr AdVoCaTe (John 14:26 The Amplified Version). The one who has your back and is fighting your case before the only righteous and completely just judge – God Almighty. Romans 8:34 (NIV) says, “Who then is the one who condemns? No OnE. Christ Jesus who died – is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.”
This verse simply flicks off our accuser like an insignificant pest.
So ignore the accuser. God’s got your back.

Wow! Thank you so much for the encouragement. When your children are adults and don’t make good decisions, we still think that it was because of what we did or did not do when they were children. Talk about guilt.Wow, the accuser really does a number on us. Thank you Jesus for being for me.
You are welcome!
