There is no mistaking that being a Mom is difficult. You are literally pulled in multiple directions all day long. When you finally have time to think, it starts all over. Don Whitney gives a helpful word to those struggling with finding the time for spiritual growth. What once seemed a joy and couldn’t be contained to a few minutes, during some seasons becomes a much more intentional task.
Like Jean with three in diapers, you may be in a situation that curtails many of your spiritual activities. You may be looking at many months or even years of such limitations. Do what you can. God does not love us more when we do more, nor less when we do less. He accepts us, not because of what we do for Him, but because of what He’s done for us in Christ.
The Bible says, “He made us accepted in the Beloved [that is, Jesus]” (Ephesians 1:6). And nothing “shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39). Love God, and within the limitations He has sovereignly placed in your life at this time, do what you can.
