“Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success.” (Proverbs 15:22)
Even though we know this, it can be easy to get lost in the role of motherhood. Our kids consume our every waking thought, and the last thing we think of is friendship. When you are battling a teething baby or a trying toddler, it can sound better to just stay home and hidden behind your four walls. In the past, I felt this way as I didn’t want people to see our hard moments. I wanted people to think I had it all together because I had bought into the lie that everyone had it together.
When I stepped out from that lie, I saw that God wants us to open up our lives to others- even the messy parts.
Friends, let others in. We need each other.
When we let others in, we are able to share our dreams, our plans, and our struggles. As we share these things together, we learn from each other. You never know what truth someone may have to speak into you until you give them the opportunity to share.
Today, look for opportunity to let others in. Let them into your mess. Let them into your plans. Ask for advice when it is needed and seek wisdom from those who have gone before you. Not one of us is perfect. We are all conquering different struggles, so let’s share those together and learn from one another.
