This is going to be a “mommy” blog post! 🙂
As I enter into this season of change from a working wife to a stay-at-home wife and mother, I try to prepare for the days ahead. As I prepare, I am tempted to worry. So, as I felt my worries starting to take me captive, I decided to get out my journal and write.
This whole transition is going to be like being born into a whole new world! Just as my little daughter, Ayealyn, will come out of the comfort of my womb and into this world, so I will be entering the world of motherhood at the same time.
I do not actually know that much about motherhood. I have secondhand knowledge and I am trying to continue to seek out more knowledge. But, I do not really know what all motherhood will entail.
My little Ayealyn has no idea what this world looks like. She will have some sort of idea (as much of an idea as a little eensy baby can have) but she will be a stranger in this world.
So I started thinking about what little Ayealyn does know about our world, and it occurred to me that she will know my voice and that will comfort her when she is distressed. And, as I am told, she will get very distressed at times! I know that my voice will not always be enough but its the idea that it is going to be familiar and comforting.
What I took away from all that is that I need to know my Father’s voice. I need to be familiar with His Words. Because He will be the same after I ‘officially’ enter motherhood as He is now!
John 10:27-29 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
