Mothering Failures Needed for His Kingdom

"The Bible teaches it’s not my own good parenting choices or how together I am as a mom that God wants me to feel confident about.

Paul said it this way, “I place no confidence in the flesh…” (Phil 3:3)

I’ve learned that failure can, in fact, be very useful because it exposes the object of my faith.

God has allowed me to be utterly broken as a mom in order for me to get this lesson right. In it all, He has shown me He wants me to transfer my trust from myself (my good choices, my hard work, my skills and abilities, my wisdom, etc) to Him and His character. Because God’s good plans for my life and my children’s lives never depended upon me in the first place. "
