As we laid down for bed tonight, I was nursing my daughter, while laying down next to my oldest son. I had promised to lay down with him for a few minutes and trying to be a mommy of my word, I took my nursing newborn with me. It was feeding time :) This gave me some time to think.

I sat and pondered my day, thinking about the kind of mom I am, wondering how my boys will remember me when I am gone. And it happened. I am sure it has happened to you plenty of times, as a mom. The thoughts of being a failure flooded my mind. 

Within the quietness of my heart I began asking for forgiveness for the way I lost my temper earlier in the day and the words I spoke without love to my kids as well. But I have had to train my brain in order to do this. To let the condemnation roll of my back that the enemy wants to hold me down with. To take my heart and thoughts heavenly and allow the Holy Spirit to refresh me as the Lord forgives me of my shortcomings of the day. 

It is so important to do this. The enemy wants to hold us back and paralyze us. Satan's goal is to make us feel like a failure so that we are of no use to Jesus. Don't allow him to do this. Call out to to Jesus when you sense this happening. Ask for forgiveness, let it go,  and then move forward. The Holy Spirit wants to come to your aid. Ask Him for help. He longs to put words of hope into your mind and remind you that you have been forgiven.

How do you handle those crazy thoughts that come into your mind daily?

Remember you have a HUGE job as you lead the next generation for Christ, and the enemy wants to push pause on the ministry going on within your family. Don't allow him to do it. Look at what His word says....
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. - Philippians 4:8
