I love being a mom. It’s just who I am. It’s just who you are. Whether a mom by birth, by adoption, or spiritually – it’s who we are. Some of us will mother a tribe, a community, generations, neighborhoods… We mother those placed in our care.
I have friends who are just aching to be mothers. I want you to know that we feel your longing. We long with you and we desire to bear your burden to the Lord. We desire to pray over you and ask that the Lord open your womb. We have the faith for this. You have the faith for this. We ask right now that the Lord raise up intercessors all over the world to pray for you.
My friends with small children, God is with you. Each day that you face another day of too much to do – God is with you. You are never alone. He is your rest, your peace, he will see you through this season. And someday not so long from now, you will remember these days with joy and even longing to return to them. We pray that you feel his presence, his rest, his peace, and his joy each day!
My friends with grown children, be at peace. God carries your children in the palm of his hand. You don’t have to be the fixer, just be the pray-er. Bear the burden of prayer. Lean heavily upon the Lord to lead and guide. Exercise your authority as the prayer warrior of your family.
My friends and family that are mommas of spiritual children, the privilege of carrying a soul is always yours. Your heart is always open and welcoming another person to find nourishment and comfort. You are an influencer. You pour into the lives of others.
Happy Mother’s Day weekend, sweet friends! My gift (prayer) for you:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:6-7
If you are a “southern” mama, maybe you’ve said some of these? Either way, mommas gotta laugh at themselves.
