A Declaration of Freedom in Motherhood


I wrote this declaration to remind myself what God says about me in His word. My purpose was to read it to my self, especially on days when I lacked faith. For, "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God".The I will’s here represent my choice to believe what God says about me instead of believing the enemy's lies. It is similar to Psalm 119; where the writer understood his freedom of choice in siding with God (Ephesians 6).

I hope it encourages you to know that all the things that were written, were also said about you.

My Declaration:

I will choose to follow the lord. He is my husband and I am his wife. I am raising his children for His Glory, and I will teach them to love Him with all of their hearts. I will guide them with cords of love and kindness. I will stoop down to feed them. I will know the state of my flock. I will be slow to anger. I will discipline in love. I will pray for them and I will pray for myself when I am at my end. I will choose to humble myself under the mighty hand of God. I will no longer allow the enemy to put my work down. I will not listen to him when he tells me that I am not doing enough. I will not pay attention to the many voices that call me inadequate, a failure and pinpoint my every flaw. Instead, I will take delight in the grace of God who covers my nakedness and my sin. I will not look for the approval of man, but to the approval of God. I will wait on Him for my reward. In his presence I will find my purpose, my identity and the fullness of His joy. I will wait peacefully for Him as I learn to trust him to direct my path. I will offer up the sacrifices of thanksgiving with a contrite heart. I will die to my own desires and I will allow him to renew my mind. I will find my sense of purpose in Him as I learn to follow his lead. I will trust him to bring me into land. Lord help me to discern the lies of the enemy today. Help me to catch the fiery arrows of the enemy and submit them under the obedience of Christ. Help me to cling to my advocate and not look to my accuser. Help me to remember you with thankfulness when I mess up. Help me to receive and feel your love today, so that I can share it with my children. Remind me and enable me to live like you today. Help me to repent right away when I fail. And help to understand the depths of your grace so that when I stumble I can get back up again.
