"WHATEVER YOU DO, WORK AT IT WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AS WORKING FOR THE LORD, NOT FOR HUMAN MASTERS." COLOSSIANS 3:23
Personally, becoming a mother certainly brought a whirlwind of emotions. I’d never felt so much purpose in my life, but I also questioned my purpose and identity outside of motherhood tremendously. I felt like I was a new person, but struggled to understand how to fuse the “old me” into this new chapter of life. I was a creative, an educator, and an entrepreneur in my past life. Leaving my job to become a full time mama (FTM) didn’t help my struggle either. Society generally looks at FTMs as having the easiest, most chill job in the world. That simply couldn't be further from the truth, but I'm immensely grateful. Motherhood is an honor and privilege and having this level of time to be present in my son’s first stages of life is truly a blessing. I prayed about my “identity crisis” and God directed me to Colossians 3:23 (btw my son was born on 3/23... no coincidences in God’s plan). “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.” I rejected the falsehood that I wasn't doing "enough." He showed me that I could take absolute pride in everything I was sowing into my son. I became unapologetically passionate about being his mommy. Motherhood became my art and my beautiful boy was my masterpiece- all glory to God!
Whether you are solely devoted to mothering or a multi-faceted mama, God is with you every step of the way.
