Weekly Eagle News – Preschool
I want to reflect on a common struggle that many mothers face - Mom guilt. This relentless feeling can overwhelm us and hinder our ability to fully enjoy motherhood.
We all want to raise our children in the best way possible. We want to give them the greatest experiences. We want to love them unconditionally with all our hearts. But the pressure to be a good mom is overwhelming at times.
To combat mom guilt, we must replace those thoughts with God’s truth. Thanks to Jesus’ death on the cross, we were redeemed from guilt. He says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). In Him, there is no condemnation or shame. Those who believe in Him are set free. In God’s eyes, we have been forgiven and are no longer guilty.
Remember that you are not alone in feeling mom guilt. It is a shared experience, but it does not define your worth as a mother. Embrace grace, accept imperfection, and let go of unrealistic expectations. Most importantly, lean on your faith to find strength and guidance as you raise your children.
You are a loving and capable mom, and your devotion to your children is a beautiful testament to your love and dedication.
