I don’t know about you, but I fall
short of the Proverbs 31 woman. It’s a hard passage to live up to every day. I
strive to be like that but let’s face it, my human nature gets in the way.
Sometimes we forget that in our
brokenness and our earthly frames, that God desires to tell us of our worth. YOU are beautiful, both inside and out.
YOU have much to offer others around
you, including your children and other children under your influence, with your
wisdom and your love for Christ. YOU are
important to God and to His Kingdom. YOU are made in God’s image and are uniquely created to be all you can be for
Him. Don’t sell yourselves short ladies.
Should you choose to do so, YOU can
have a major impact on the world for Christ.
Whether you are a Mom, an auntie, a
sister or a grandmother, by blood or by choice, you have a responsibility to
believe and know that you have something to offer the world. In our busyness
and our states of exhaustion, we can lose focus on Christ and His purpose for
One of my favorite passages of
scripture is in Joshua 1. The ninth verse says “Have I not commanded you? Be strong
and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God
will be with you wherever you go.”
On this Mother’s Day, be Strong and
Courageous, share with your children the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ! But
first, believe in yourself and in His perfect plan for you.
You are loved, you are precious, you
are enough, you are amazing!
Happy Mother's Day to each of you!
May God continue to pour into you and may you hear Him speaking and believe what He says!
