Mama, God Says You Can Relax!
So, because I’m a mom, it took a few days into the new year for me to finally get around to listening to the message from my church on New Year’s Eve.
I’m not terribly superstitious, but I’d heard somewhere that whatever you are doing when the clock strikes 12 will be what you are doing all year. Knowing that, I was sure to be asleep as 2016 turned into 2017. First, because, who can stay up until midnight and second, with my perpetual mom exhaustion, I’d be damned if I wasn’t going to at least try to get that hocus pocus to work for me.
When I finally got around to watching, the pastor began the message by praying, “Lord, help me relax into the anointing you have placed on my life.” He was asking God to help him be who he already was.
Now I don’t know if you believe in God or the Universe or whatever else, but this totally resonated with me and motherhood.
“Relax into the anointing.”
The fact is that you are the perfect mother for your baby.
Surgical birth, natural birth, nursing, pumping, supplementing, working in the home or outside, amazing Pinterest creations or Amazon Prime packages. You were chosen to be the mother to your baby from millions and millions of possibilities.
Anointed for the job, one might say.
So relax into that anointing mama. Know that you were made to mother your baby in the way that is best for your family.
Isn’t it nice to be able to add rest to that long list of new year’s resolutions?
Relax mama. You got this.
