Motherhood means choices...
Shall I read this which will support the culture or this which will nourish their soul?
Shall we watch this which will compliment the culture or this which will teach them His ways?
Shall they wear that which is what “they” are wearing or dress them like the children they are?
And then there is music, friendship and a multitude of activities which separates them from home sweet home.
It’s choices ever day. Every hour of the day. Every minute of the day that makes you mother.
It’s hard choices. Unpopular choices. Counter-culture choices that take prayer, discernment, wisdom and strength.
This is motherhood.
“...choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
~ Joshua 24:15
