Stop The Whining- Luke 12:48

It’s been a week and two days shy of four years since I became a Momma, which means that I have fallen in love at least 1,451 times. It also means that I have changed more than 6,000 diapers, many with my eyes closed, because let’s face it; I’ve been in some state of exhaustion since that life-changing January day.

In the past four years I have learned to inhale my food and use my feet as extra hands. I have learned that I have a magical power in my kiss that makes boo-boos better. I have learned that two tiny girls create an unbelievable amount of laundry and that if I don’t sit for an entire Saturday I can get through some of it. I have learned that my patience wears thin after 8pm and that naptime can be a saving grace. I have learned that surprisingly, sharing my husband’s heart with two other girls makes me love him even more. I have learned that it’s easy to lose your mind, and even yourself if you’re not careful, and that having great girlfriends is more important than ever (who else are you going to compare war stories with). In four years I have forgotten what it’s like to veg out, to sleep in, and to be care-free. I have forgotten what guilt-free shopping feels like, and spontaneity for that matter.

As a Momma I have many-many blissful days, and some days that I feel like I am drowning in dishes and responsibility.

So when I read this in my church bulletin yesterday morning:

From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” Luke 12:48

…I underlined it, and then underlined it again.

Of course! God has given me much. Much more than I deserve. And He has entrusted me with much. MUCH more than I could have imagined. He chose me, me specifically, to raise up two of His children. Now that is trust! The bible tells us that with great blessings come greater demand and I can’t think of any blessing greater than Harper and Aniston.

I guess God told me!

-Stop it already with the whining. It’s not supposed to be easy when you are blessed beyond belief!
