Yesterday, I had the opportunity to help a couple of close friends by listening and giving advice. Sometimes, that advice just comes, like they aren't my words at all. I think times like that is when there is something for both of you to learn. Which is so awesome. I believe its the Lords way of having you help someone in need and helping yourself to grow and learn. So, what did I learn yesterday? I learned the "Back to Basics" concept.
What is it? Well, I didn't know until I typed it out in a text message like I knew what I was talking about, HA! But it helped my friend. And it helped me. In this example, its to remind us mothers that we are good and worthy of our children. But I believe you apply this to any situation.
So, when you're having a hard time in life remember these Basics.
Repeat out loud, as many times as needed:
- I am a daughter/son of God, and He loves me.
- My kids are also children of God, and He loves them.
- God sent these children to me. They are mine. And that must mean, I am enough.
- I am a good mother and I can make this right.
- I love my children and they love me.
So take a deep breathe. Pray out loud and try to feel that validation you need that you ARE ENOUGH through your Father in Heaven. Ask for forgiveness for your shortcomings. And remember, there is time for improvement. Every. Single. Day. You got this. I know it.
Remember, God's love is Real. The atonement is real. His Light is in You. And You are worth His time.
