You’ve heard the expression ‘If momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy’. This is so true. We underestimate our power to set the tone of the day. But far more reaching than that is our affect on our children for the rest of their lives! — No pressure, right?!! 🙂
And you’ve heard ‘The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world. It’s the title of a poem by William Ross Wallace (1819-1881) Again, very true and more pressure.
We as mothers have been called to the hardest, most overwhelming responsibility EVER! However – it is also the greatest privilege that God bestows – to love and mold a little life!
But – wow! – how do we be and do all that is required of a mother?
Well, God never asks us to do something without making a way for us to do it. For example 2 Cor. 5:20 speaks of God imploring us to be reconciled to Him; 2 Peter 1:1 points out that God sent His Son Jesus who makes us right with Him. In Mark 11:22 Jesus commands us to have faith in God; again in 2 Peter 1:1 we see that He gives us even the faith to believe.
So it is with our call to be a mother!!!! God gives us a promise: 1 Thessalonians 5:24 “Faithful is he that calls you, who also will do it.” Take heart that He who called you to this awesome privilege and overwhelming responsibility will He, Himself, do it! All we have to do is let Him!!! Also, be encouraged by Isaiah 40:11 “. . . He gently leads those that have young.“
So please have a Happy Mother’s Day resting in the fact that God’s got your back. He understands what a great work He has entrusted to you. He has promised to gently lead you as you depend on Him to do through you what He has called you to do.
