Guest post by the amazing Jenny Sulpizio…
Just the mere mention of this word has me slightly anxious, to tell you the truth. And honestly, why wouldn’t it? Chances are if you’re reading this and are a mom of youngsters, you understand exactly what I’m talking about.
Our days can’t help but become consumed by the chores we must tend to, and the errands we must run.
Whether it’s the laundry… the dishes… and/or the cleaning of our homes, we moms are bombarded by the tasks we’re forced to “check off” on those ever-expanding, daily to-do lists of ours.
I don’t know about you, but this wasn’t what I signed up for. And I have a suspicion that this isn’t what God designed us for either.
He didn’t bless us with the gift of motherhood only to keep us focused on our chores, the chaos of our days, and the mayhem that accompanies this role. Not to mention the grumbling that comes along with, and the resentment we feel in completing said tasks.
Nope. This definitely wasn’t the plan.
So, why do we do it?
– Why do we let that dreaded housework of ours bring us down, take our identity, and strip our memorable mommy moments from us?
– Why do so many of us constantly seek perfection day in and day out in our role as moms?
– If God never intended for his children to be perfect then why are we constantly striving to achieve it, knowing full well that perfection can never be attained?
Girls, here’s the truth. We’re flawed, imperfect, and sinners by nature. And chances are, we fall short of the glory of God each and every day.
But we’ve got kids, which means we’ve also got chores. So, what’s a mom to do?
I’m so glad you asked.
Just 30 minutes per day and bam(!) you’re done.
Don’t believe me?
