Proverbs 31:10, King James Version (KJV)
10” Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies”.
Being a mom the second time around has it advantages and disadvantages. Second time moms have the advantages of being a more seasoned parent, that voice of reason in a chaotic world. Yet have the disadvantages of being a modern day mom. The Modern Day Mom Era is how I like to refer to it. The Proverbs 31 Woman in fast mode.The know all, be all and do all mentality. I remember reading that passage when I first became a christian and thinking no woman can be all of those things. Unless she has Super Powers.Thank God for wisdom. We as moms are pulled into so many directions on a daily basis that it can be overwhelming. The pressure to be the head of the PTA or make the best costume, bake the best bake sale items or the best science project for the science fair. As if that is not enough, and to help bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan. The cares of this world can extinguish the light that God has put inside of us.. Therefore blinding us to our true purpose in life. I am not saying that these things are not important but let’s not allow them to choke the life out of us.
We are so much more than that. We are unique individuals with our own hopes and dreams, that rare precious jewel, that good thing a man acquires when he finds us. So slow down and smell the roses, Enjoy that cup of tea as you sit by the fire. Stop neglecting yourselves, treat yourselves you deserve it.
Women are charged with such a great responsibility in life. We are prayer warriors, homemakers, wives and employees. We set the spiritual balance for the household and are what helps make a house a home.
Most of all we are Women of God, created for his purpose to worship him. So let us not forget to make time for him in all our planning. Pencil God in your Mom Journal, he should be your first appointment in the morning.
Women of God, Wives, and Mothers I leave you with this. Let us walk in the Grace, Wisdom, Power and Femininity that is within us. For these are our Super Powers.
Until next time… Live, Love, Laugh!
