The Highest Calling…
Good morning beautiful people, good morning. Mother’s Day is soon approaching, and I want this week leading up to this day to write about mothers and motherhood. Even though my mom is in heaven, I will take something to her graveside to celebrate her and the life she gave me. Motherhood is the highest calling, I believe.
We as Christians know that Mary is the mother of Jesus, and she was and is a very important woman. Your mother and the womb that carried you, was and is an important woman. We would not be here if it was not for our mothers. She probably was not perfect, made mistakes, and carried a load more than what we even realize today. Be thankful for the good and that she chose to give you life. Celebrate, even if she put you up for adoption or gave you away, as she may have felt she did what was best for you.
Recently, on my radio broadcast Destiny Moments, I interviewed a woman that her mom died giving birth to her. One of them was going to die and she chose it would be her to save her baby. Wow, I must admit I am still processing this interview. I only know one person that would die for us and that was Jesus. This birth cost her, and she laid down her life as well for her child.
Mother’s Day is not an easy day for some women. I penned this some years ago and let’s start the week with this one.
The Empty Womb…
Mothers hold their children oh so dear, but today is difficult for me my friend, as my womb lay empty and bare.
You see my friend, I have suffered loss, my heart ached with such deep pain.
But today, I celebrate with you my friend, your joy I know is hard to explain.
You see my sister; my child is in heaven. Miscarriage, abortion or death has come my way. As I hold no one on this day.
I do celebrate with you my friend, the pain is healed now, your child’s face I love to see. She looks so much like you, and I wonder what he will be.
Sister, your child a gift from God, a blessing to embrace. May we all reflect Jesus to them and may they come to know His saving grace.
Today, let’s join our faith for any woman that is hurting across this globe this Mother’s Day.
Father, thank you that you heal us when we hurt. You are Christ the Healer. We join our faith for every woman across this globe that needs inner healing from the loss of a child. Father, we bring them to the healing waters of Jesus Christ today. Make them whole again, we pray.
Father, remove pain, shame, guilt and bring them joy and peace in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Have a blessed day God’s most beautiful people. Love life, choose life, enjoy life and someday we will go on to eternal life.
Bless a mother this week. If you don’t have one, or yours has gone on to heaven, ask the Holy Spirit to lead you to someone that you could celebrate.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. (Psalm 127:3)
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13)
