This is exactly how I feel tonight! I hate that. I don't like putting the kids to bed and feeling like a failure. I'm praying for a better day tomorrow with my three little blessings.

I shared this picture on Facebook with the caption below.  The kids woke up from their naps and were in such foul moods.  I could not do anything to make them happy.  Paul got off work and found me tear stained because I felt like a total failure as a mom.  The night ended with me yelling and losing my temper because I was over the whining, screaming, crying, etc.

By the time all the kids were in bed I was so disappointed in myself and ended up crying (again) thinking about how I handled everything during the day.

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. (Psalm 30:5b)

It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.  The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. (Lamentations 3:22-24)

All parents have their moments where they feel like failures, but the important thing to remember what?  Do you give up and just accept that you're a horrible parent, or do you ask God to help you try harder the next day?

Today I keep reminding myself of the promises God has given me in His Word whenever one of the kids act up and I feel myself get irritated.  I'm so thankful for new days to try harder!  Aren't you?


  1. Been there. If a mom said they have not been there , they are telling a lie. God is good in spute of our horrible days. The scriptures you put in this post are perfect. I should write them on a paper and stick it to the fridge. :-)

  2. Those failure moments don't go away when your kids get older. And you may still have those times when you want to give up... Then you remember that you love them too much to give up and you pray more and more, because of the mother's love.
