Letter to My Future “Mom” Self
Can you believe it? Can you believe the Lord blessed you with your children and you are now a mom? You longed for this since you were a little girl and your dream finally came true all because of the Lord’s grace and blessings upon your life.
God did abundantly more than you could ask or imagine, huh? I know you couldn’t see it then, but He had good plans for you all along. He always does and He always will. He knew the exact day you would find out you were pregnant and the exact day your babies would enter this world. He knows all the details. Just as He did along your journey of waiting, He wants to continue to shower you with His grace and goodness.
The whole time you waited to become pregnant, the Lord was preparing you for motherhood. I know there were days you didn’t know if you could wait one more day, but I bet you can now agree it was totally worth the wait, right? Everything He taught you over the years of waiting was for this season. He was refining you to be a better mom. He was teaching you patience and reliance on Him. He created you for such a time as this, but you will need to continue to rely on His strength each and every day as you parent every one of your children.
You might think that since you had such a hard and long journey to get to this place you can’t have hard days or admit how difficult it is to be a mom. That isn’t true. Give yourself grace just as the Lord gives you. Don’t compare yourself to other moms and remember you won’t be a perfect mom. You will mess up. You will cry. You will lose your patience and you will be tired. It’s going to be hard. But, what is most important is that you forgive yourself, love your children well, and that you share Christ with each of them.
Your children are chosen and set apart. God brought them here supernaturally and has specific plans for each one. Make sure to tell them each and every day that they are miracles sent from above. When they go through trials, they will need to cling to the same faithful and loving God who brought them into this world. I know you always imagined what an amazing testimony you would have one day, but it wasn’t just for you. It was for your children too. Because of their story, they will never doubt God as their Savior and King.
Your children are blessed to have you and Colby as their parents and although they will never understand all the heartache, tears, and pain you went through while you waited on them, know that God saw all the ups and downs and He is so proud of you for never giving up. Congrats on becoming a mom!
The one believing in your miracle
