Shattering Our Expectations of Motherhood with Grace

Did you have these perfect visions in your mind of what motherhood would look like? I sure did, but the realities of my role crashed violently with the expectations I so naively crafted in my mind of what motherhood would look like.

In this devotional we will discover together that the gap between our expectations and experiences as a mom is the space where we can run desperately to God. As we start to shift our expectations from a tightly held grip of control and start releasing them to God, we can re-learn how trusting Him with our motherhood is the only expectation we need.

Go Ahead and Pour From An Empty Cup

It’s 2:30 am, the baby wakes you up with a scream at decibels only a mother can hear, in your daze of stumbling through your checklist of things to make her settle down you hear the faintest little voice say, “mommy, mommy I need water”, you fill the sippy cup and settle the baby then after your thoughts finish their 30 minute racing cycle you drift off to sleep, but not a restful one because you know this routine so well that the 4 more wake ups will come as sure as baby waking up before the sun ever reflects a single ray onto the dawn.
