Every morning I wake up and look over at my son, smiling and talking his little baby talk, I get a little sad and even feel a little guilt.
Because I have only but an hour to spend with him before I have to leave to go to work. For eight to nine hours straight every day I am gone and if you’re good at math, then you know, that cuts my time with him in total short.
If I could have my way, I would definitely be at home with him, but that is not my story right now in this season and that’s okay.
I’ve accepted that, because I know God will give me the desires of my heart very soon.
It would be easy in the moment to just up and quit my job but I know God has me at my job in this season for a reason.
Which brings me to my point …
Having a relationship with Jesus is so important. Along with prayer, it will help to make sure in every season we are making wise decisions and not emotional decisions.
There is a time for everything.
Remember there is a time for everything.
It’s not about the “right” time, but about God’s timing.
I say that, because what you may think is the perfect time to step forward, God may not think so, and vice versa.
God may tell you to do something when it doesn’t look right to.
That’s why it’s important to keep God first in all that we do and desire.
Where you are right now, whether you are a working outside the home or inside the home with your children, God is using you. Don’t let guilt come in and take over.
You may feel like you’re missing out on the other side but keep in mind that each has its perks and its nuisance.
You are someone’s hero.
No matter what position you’re in, to your child, you are their hero.
So to the working mom, keep putting your best foot forward. You are appreciated and your work is not in vain. There is someone watching you, wondering how you do it and it encourages them.
To the mom working in the home, your sacrifice is not in vain. You are appreciated. Your courage and patience is admirable. You too are being watched and someone is being encouraged.
As a mom, we want to do what is best for our family. Do not give up on your desires, whatever it may be: going back to work, going back to school, starting a business, to stay at home, or to work from home.
Do not think about other’s opinions.
At the end of the day no matter what position you currently hold, and what season you are in, your CHILD/CHILDREN love you and appreciate the time you spend together.
Don’t be too hard on yourself and don’t give up on your dreams.
So let’s chat! Are you a working mom or a stay at home mom? What do you like and dislike about your current position. Are you transitioning anytime soon? I definitely would like to know!
