Just How Good We Are

May 14, 2023    Walt Davis

Dear Holy Ones of the Most High,

We very much look forward to celebrating the risen Jesus with you this Mother’s Day Sunday! While I’ve never been a mother, I have had front row seats to watch two incredible women be incredible mothers—my mom and my wife. I’ve seen their sacrifice, patience, long suffering, tears, joy, sorrow, and celebration. My observation is that Motherhood is extremely rewarding at times but extremely hard at times, too.

Here is the trick of the enemy: during those hard times, he says things to you like, “You’ll never be a good enough mom.” With this seed of doubt, anxiety and depression become commonplace in our culture. This isn’t limited to mothers! No matter who you are, the enemy is constantly trying to get us to think we simply don’t measure up and we won’t ever measure up. His desire is for us to just throw in the towel and forsake everything that Jesus has done for us and to us.

Have you been there? Do you wrestle with the constant doubt that you’re good enough—a good enough mom, a good enough wife, a good enough daughter, a good enough husband, dad, friend, etc. etc? Of course you have. We all have. I hope you will join us this Sunday as we take a few minutes to listen to what the Father Himself has to say about us and just how good we now are as born again believers. The truth of what He says about our new life in Him is eternally better than what the enemy seeks to tell us about ourselves. 

So here’s the question—who are you going to listen to?

Hope to see you Sunday!
