Think about that for a minute.
Marriage is beautiful and blesses us in so many ways. However, marriage also brings out the worst in us. It highlights our selfish, sinful nature. It brings our control issues to the surface.
I believe the same could be said about motherhood.
What if God designed motherhood to make us holy more than to make us happy?
It certainly brings out the best–and the worst–in us!
Today’s Third Thursday Blog Hop topic is “How Has Being A Mom Changed You?” The answer to that question for me is that motherhood has been a magnifying glass for my sin nature. It’s shown me the dark places in my heart where I need God’s light to shine more brightly. It’s uncovered the impatient, selfish nature that I try so hard to cover up. It’s opened my eyes to my own immaturity and places where God longs for me to grow up.
So how’s motherhood changed me?
It’s put me on the path to holiness…and boy do I still have a long way to go!
