A Prayer for Working Moms

Today I pray that you would feel like enough. At work, at home, in the traffic in between. With your co-workers or clients, your children and spouse, your best friends you are enough. I pray that you would lean into the enough of God and trust that He is not only enough for you, but He is enough for everyone who needs something from you. I pray that you would sense the completeness of God and rest in His promise of enough.

I pray that you would live in the tension between work and home, feel each side pulling and allow it to not turn your head back and forth, but instead up toward God. It is hard sometimes to leave your baby and hard sometimes to leave your job. I pray that you would   rest in the tension between the two, knowing that God has both for you in this time.

I pray that you would not feel lost. As you change from professional you, to mommy you, to  wife you and back again, know that you are enough simply as you. You are seen by the one who made you, you are more than the sum of your parts. There is a soul in there that was crafted in the image of your God.

I pray that you would know that God has this for you, right now, in the midst of the babysitters, and the day off because of a fever, in the midst of the milestones you feel like you are missing at home, and the things you feel like you can’t do at work, in the midst of the mommy guilt I pray that you would know with everything you are that this today is what the Lord has for you today.

It is hard, but it is good. May He meet you there today.
