Pray for Families (The Gift of Mothers)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

The importance of motherhood was highlighted with an exclamation mark when God decided He would send His only Son to save us.  He could have sent His Son in any manner, but chose that He should enter this world through a woman.  He wanted His Son to have a Mother.   Not just any mother, but the most beautiful woman ever created.  One that was pure, kind, loving, and generous of heart.  One that with her “yes” would like most mothers, suffer along with the fruit of her womb.  One that would be wholly present to her child His entire life. One that would continually pray on His behalf, and no matter what happened, would continually trust in the will of God.

What an incredible prototype, what an incredible example, and what an amazing gift mothers are!!!   As Mother’s Day approaches, let us turn our hearts toward God and praise Him for the gift of our mothers both living and deceased.    Let us focus on their sacrifices for us, their ways of love, and in turn also choose to let go of any old hurts or anger.  May that be the most beautiful gift you give.  

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son. Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home. John 19:26-27

For Jesus so loved us, that as he neared death, He gave His mother to us, and us to His mother’s care.  Now that is an incredible gift.  For as He chose her to walk with Him throughout His life, He desires that she also walk with us during our lives.

Thank you Jesus, for the gift of your mother and for the gift of our earthly mother!

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Share your love for mothers.  Pass it on!
