Motherhood can be a confusing time of turbulence for women losing the fight for contented peace in Christ. With our mouths we bless the Lord, but with our hearts we curse the tantrums, rebellions, and arguments with our children. This inner turmoil and bitterness can leave us feeling guilty, isolated, depressed and hopelessly overwhelmed.

As we frantically grasp for some semblance of control, we clean and scrub, yell and wail, cry and fight, wondering how our once joyful hearts ended up so battered. Before we know it, the struggle to keep our homes sparkly clean and children well-behaved begins to reveal a darker battle waging within us—a redeemed heart still refusing surrender.

Can the good news of the gospel hold us together when we’re sorely split at the seams? Can the Holy Spirit restore the joy of our salvation when all we feel is the agony of defeat? And will we ever experience the happy hopefulness of a clean heart as we cry out for God’s transforming grace?
