Let’s just get that out of the way…..there is not one of us that is perfect at parenting…at anything!
I soooo struggle with being a parent sometimes. Add to it that I homeschool….I doubt myself ALL the time…..what get’s me through it?
I know it is all LIES! When I am connecting to God each and every day……throughout my day always…..I KNOW AND SEE the lies the enemy is trying to feed me!
I recently had a battle with once again doubting I was enough for my daughter when it came to her education. Some suggestions were made and I found myself getting defensive. But since I have been doing so much inner healing work I was able to recognize the two fold prong the enemy was trying to get to me with.
He was using a person I struggle with. A beautiful amazing person who never ever says words of praise to me. Now since my primary love language is WORDS I have to remind myself all the time that not everyone realizes and knows how to use words constructively. Add to it this amazing person and I haven’t always had the greatest of a relationship. It has been rocky but I know because of God we are at a much better place than ever before.
So the 2nd prong was the topic of homeschooling. I hope you are seeing the same thing I was able to recognize. The storm of hurt and doubt the enemy was trying to brew. And it almost worked. After the conversation I wanted to think: why am I not enough for this person, why can’t I EVER receive a compliment of what I have done with my daughter and her education. Why….why….why….
But I stopped……I saw what he was doing. He wanted me to create a spiritual disconnect with this person. To undo all the work we have done. I was able to see that I still had my own work to do within me…..in KNOWING I AM ENOUGH! God commissioned me to be my daughter’s mom…..and HE KNOWS I AM ENOUGH!!
Today unfold the lies the enemy has been feeding you about your abilities, your relationships….and sweep him out…..take it to God……let HIM redeem the wounds. Don’t allow the lies to wound you anymore and don’t let the lies wound your connection to others!
This is definitely something to sit with….pray about….journal about…go to the oils to help you connect to your emotions you are feeling and tap about it to release the negative energy….finally share about it…..whether here or with someone you trust. Darkness can not live in the light!
Many blessings and hugs dear beloved ones…
