I am the Redeemed Mom

Aug 09, 2021

I am the pinch-lipped mom.

I want to smile at my children but I don’t have it in me. I’m exhausted. Tired. Worn down.

I am the pinch-lipped mom.

Maybe it’s the meltdown in the grocery isle.
The constant back talk. The 6am wake ups demanding snacks and attention.

I am the pinch-lipped mom.


He cuts through the noise. My guilt. My fatigue.

You are mine.

You’re not what you do. Your short words. Your frustration.

You are free.

You’re free from your emotions. Your circumstance. Your unbelief.

What you wish for is already yours.

My joy and my patience are already given. Stop living like before.

Their calls come back loudly. The begging. The bickers.

But my heart softens, eyes tear, my lips smile.

Thank you. I whisper. For making me new.

I am the Redeemed Mom.
