Any female can have a child (12 year old give birth to a healthy boy)….but it takes a woman who is selfless, sacrifices her needs and wants for her children’s needs and wants, who works hard to make her children have a firm and solid foundation to be a good mother.
A mother is a protector and nurturer …and even if the job of parenting is a long and winding road she handles it with grace each and every day.
As the little humans grow up to be adults the true strength of the mother is put to one of the greatest tests …the long awaited phone calls just to hear their voice whisper, ‘Hi Ma all is well. I love you’ is a win for her.
Somebody’s mother cries herself to sleep at nights as she must accept the reality that her child is gone and the phone isn’t going to ring.
Forgiveness as a mother goes like this – seventy times seven each and every day. That’s a whopping 490 times a day…then multiply that by 365 days another 178,850 times per year just dealing with forgiveness.
A good mother seeks God’s grace and strength as she keeps her household together even while she herself maybe falling apart in her room, or in the car, or on the bathroom floor.
God is the One who chooses which home to place an unborn child and as mothers we don’t get to handpick our children…so we are learning on the job and hoping every night after they are in bed that you did a great job.
It’s the ‘One day at a time ‘Sweet Jesus’ and ‘Jesus please take the wheel’ moments each and every hour.
Many times mothers silently break under the weight of a rebellious child, but mothers are resilient and courageous and God promises that they will laugh at the days to come. It’s a promise.
God can certainly take care of mothers. Nothing is too hard for God to handle late in the midnight hours.
Some children insist on taking the harder road and all we as mothers can do is to pray that her child will find their way SAFELY back home.
Our children were custom- made for our homes, and in spite of them not coming with a ‘how to care for’ package…God guides us accordingly day by day. Today’s trouble is enough for today, so He gives us our daily portion.
With the ‘hiccups’ we must keep believing for God to give our children dreams and goals that will drive them to their destiny.
Faith in God is not based on our feelings and our ever changing emotions. It’s a choice to trust God while going through the darkest and scariest moments.
You know those times when we just don’t know what’s happening in our children’s lives…that’s the time we need to take a deep breath and ask God for the family to get through the unknown.
● Talk to yourself
● Talk to God
● Interrupt your thoughts before you start believing the lies
● Don’t let the love for your children keep you outside of God’s purpose…otherwise, you will have to live outside of God’s purpose to sustain them.
Finally, when we see only one set of footprints in the home…it was God who carried us through it all. Be thankful that you didn’t have to do it alone.
Carefully and slowly read the quotes if you have ever questioned your parenting skills ...👠👠
