After my son, Kaleb, was born, I walked through a few months of really hard stuff. I didn’t realize it at first, but I struggled with some postpartum depression in the form of anxiety. I was so afraid that Kaleb would go to sleep and in the morning he would be dead. I barely slept during those first few months, waking up constantly to check that he was breathing. I would randomly burst into tears, especially when my husband was gone. I felt so overwhelmed and like I was doing a terrible job as a mom.
You see, sometimes even when God has revealed our identity to us, we have to be reminded. I knew that God loved me, but I felt like a complete failure when it came to caring for my baby.
Now, I see that Satan was again trying to derail my identity. I thought that every time my son cried, I was doing something wrong. I think a lot, if not all, new moms feel that way. Thankfully, I have a really strong support system. Both sides of my family live in the same town as my husband and I, so that helped a ton. But I also had to go to Father God and ask Him to remind me who I am.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the “Mom Hat” and forget that you have needs, too. Part of self-care is allowing Father God to minister to your heart and spirit. Allow Him to refresh and renew your strength this week!
