One Christian writer says: “When my friend had her first child she applied all her career talents to making a smooth transition into motherhood. She kept a rigid schedule, gave her son a nap like clockwork, planned time for grocery shopping, and always managed to have a nice dinner prepared by the time her husband got home.

She kept up this routine until she could handle the stress no longer. One day, she cracked. She left the house a complete mess, she forgot to shower, never went to the grocery store and when her husband came home she handed him the dirty baby…and declared the house a dinner-free zone!

What did her husband do? He fell to his knees and hollered “Hallelujah!” then grabbed his wife and gave her a bear hug. He proclaimed: “You’re back!”

Her gifts, besides being a great wife, mom and businesswoman, are her sense of humor, her sassiness, her fun and her authenticity. All the things her husband truly missed when her personality went on a postpartum hiatus.

“If you’re trying to become perfect by your own human effort” (Gal 3:3 NLT), it’s not going to happen! “We have different gifts, according to the grace given us.”  When you strive to be somebody other than the person God intended, you end up feeling angry, inadequate and frustrated. God purposely gifted us all in different areas. Once you realize this, you can start to minister from your particular area of giftedness.

Always remember that every one of us is a work-in-progress. So my suggestion to you is to cut yourself some slack. Instead of trying to become that perfect individual, begin to thank God for making you one-of-a-kind.
 
Thank your for taking the time out to read this PR. I hope this was a inspirational message for you.
