Conquering Motherhood and the GraceLaced Mondays Link Up

Welcome to GraceLaced Mondays, a link up dedicated to sharing any and all blog posts by like-minded lovers of grace--God's grace! Grace is found in the everyday when you are intentional about taking note of it...and I invite you to share your story, great or small, of how everyday moments are full of Grace.

It is found in the sink full of dishes awaiting you after a family meal, it shines in the faces of your imperfect children, it soothes from the pages of God's Word, and it is tucked into the enjoyment of a fresh batch of cookies. Grace is in a beautiful moment and a heartbreaking one alike. Grace is blessing beyond what you and I deserve.

*********************************

As moms, we so often allow our daily challenges and circumstances overwhelm and defeat us. Melissa of Hive Resources, linked up last week and shared a wonderful post reminding us of what we have victory over and what the Lord promises to conquer on our behalf:

"And when Paul says we are “more than conquerors” he is literally saying we win over our circumstances by a “surpassing victory.” We don’t win the battle by a margin. We don’t just squeak by; our victory is overwhelming.

As a mom, I need the hope of an overwhelming victory over my circumstances more than anything.

So, what exactly are we winning the victory over? You can probably guess. It’s not well-behaved kids, not the promise of a college degree, not the gift of natural athletic abilities, nor any other misplaced parenting goal."

 If you feel defeated today, read the rest of the post for truth and encouragement from God's Word!

Thanks for linking up, Melissa!
