Let’s Be Mothers Who Are More Than Conquerors

We have a choice to make -we can allow the potency and weight of our task as mothers to overwhelm us or we can stand with the strength of Christ undergirding us. Sister, it’s true that we have a great need – but we have a great Christ for our need.

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” Romans 8:31-32 (ESV)

God’s abundant grace extends to us as well as to our children.

So in all these things, in all our sleepless nights, with our teething babies and croupy toddlers, when we are teaching our children the importance of obedience, in all our efforts as we labor to live out the gospel in front of our children and with them, “we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” (from Romans 8:37 ESV)
