I don't say that to diminish our role as moms. Motherhood is absolutely a noble and sacred calling, BUT being a mom can not be our primary source of our identity.
Colossians 3:3-4 says, "You died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory."
The apostle Paul said our life is hidden in Christ and in Him we are His daughters. That's our identity sister! That's what shapes our calling as mom's, wives, business owners, employees, in ministry, in our families, etc.
While motherhood is absolutely a calling God may have placed on your life, that doesn't mean you have to stop dreaming. Maybe your dreams include starting a ministry or business, blogging, serving in your church or starting a community group. God has given each of us specific gifts and passions for a reason! Being a mom doesn't mean you can't pursue God's calling to serve Him in other ways.
Start dreaming, sister. Pray hard and if God is calling you, don't be afraid to take a step faith!
