The Shift in My Perspective on Motherhood

Before I became a parent I had this idea of the mother I would be, how my children would be, all the things we would do together, etc.

Fast forward to me actually being a mother and I’m not sure if it’s exactly how I expected it would be.

I think I expected it to be easy to teach Omari, that he would be this perfect little child that did everything perfectly and that’s just not how life is.

I’m learning that Omari does not belong to me, he belongs to God and that I need to throw these little “plans” I had out the window and let God have his way.

Often we can’t see God’s plan but I find great comfort in knowing he has one and that I just need to be in position and play my part.

Omari will be fine, he will be great, God knew him before he even put him in my womb and he has great plans for him. Amen.

  1. New follower here! You’re absolutely correct. Our children do not belong to us but God. I’m also learning to let my daughter lead me while I follow. Now that I’m expecting my second I am curious to see how this plays out. God leads us and sometimes we just need to stop asking questions and let it be. Motherhood is not easy and we always try to perfect it, but life has its own plans.
