“How long will it be before you screw these kids up?” There are so many ways that could happen. “You’re walking on thin ice.” I have this uneasy feeling I can’t shake. “Go ahead, celebrate mother’s day; this year. You’ve been a good mom so far, but really, how long can you keep it up?” I feel tired. So tired.
This is Satan beating up on me. Preying on my insecurities. He’s trying to make me believe that I am doomed to fail.
Sometimes, particularly when you have a mood disorder, or even when you’re just feeling weak, it’s hard to fight these lies.
I know I won’t be a perfect parent. (I haven’t been). It’s impossible. I have make mistakes and I will make more. There will be times that I will be a poor example. My prayer is that those times will be few and far between and that, as God uses those moments to teach me, my children will learn too.
