In our sin sick world, there is an idea floating around out there that in order to have joy and contentment in your motherhood it’s all up to you to make it happen. If you’re not content or thriving as a mom, well then you just need to go out and get it for yourself. Go get it. Nobody’s going to give it to you. You have to just take care of yourself.
This news, that there is an irresistible joy and contentment that is coming for you. This is good news.
We are loved from before time began, called to be the Father’s adopted daughter before we were ever born.
Jesus is making this happen. Sovereign grace is after us. God reached down into the disgusting pit of our sin and awakened our souls to embrace His gospel. And this is enough to make our hearts just sing forever.
