I’m not a very good wife or mother sometimes. My husband knows through my tone, attitude and words that I don’t like what he just did. The kids are arguing and I raise my voice and tell them to stop fighting. I struggle with sin and make mistakes. At times I feel like I really blow it. I use to get really down on myself (I still occasionally do). I know that I’m forgiven etc., but so much of my identity can be wrapped up in being a wife, mother, and a homemaker.
Have you ever had one of those days where it feels like you aren’t doing anything right? Besides struggling with sin, you’re struggling with keeping things together, you’re behind in your commitments, there are so many things that you feel like you should do, but you’re not able to. You ask yourself how come so and so are able to do this, but not me? Do you get down on yourself? Do you find yourself questioning whether you are a good wife? mom? home-maker? etc.?
Where is your identity or self-worth found?
How do you think of yourself? What is your identity tied to… being a wife, a mother, a friend, a homeschooler, a homemaker, a writer, a ____________?
