My worth does not come from my job that I love,⠀ or my wonderful, loving marriage.⠀ I will not be magically fulfilled one day if I am a mother to a child on earth. ⠀ Are you surprised? ⠀ Those are all amazing things, and I am so content and thankful and blessed in my life. However, I know my worth and ultimate fulfillment comes from Christ and Christ alone. ⠀ ⠀ I see it time and time again when people put all of their worth into their different roles, or into where they are striving to be next. ⠀ "I will be happy once I finish school, get that job, get married, buy a house, have kids, have grandkids, etc. etc." ⠀ I'm not saying I've never done this before, but when I focus on the One above instead of setting expectations on my loved ones or the roles I have or where I should be in life, I can breathe a little easier and simply enjoy the goodness of today. ⠀ ⠀ Everyone will let you down at least once because we are all just human. Even though I love my job, I still have bad days. Having another child will not replace Bennett, and I know nothing on this side of Heaven is guaranteed. ⠀ ⠀ But God? God never lets me down and never leaves me, and that makes me rest easy.
