Lessons of motherhood

I was just reflecting how motherhood can change and mold us. Day by day, another piece of the self-centered child in me is chipped away. Day by day he is using my experiences as a mother and spiritual mother to turn me into the person He wants me to be. Marriage began that work in me, but motherhood has multiplied it greatly; spiritual motherhood even more.
I know it will be a lifelong process....I know He uses it to help me to turn to Him; to rely on Him to be my comfort.

A blessed day to you all....

So true Barb! Even in times of loss and sadness, we find opportunities to grow closer to Him. Opportunities to be molded into what He wants for our lives. Experiences that change our lives, don't necessarily mean changes for the bad, they make us who we are...which is hopefully more of who He wants us to be.
God Bless you!
