One of the greatest callings we can answer is that of motherhood. Accepting the call to be a mother is far from glamorous no matter what the pictures show. It isn’t an easy job either. There are late nights and long days. Demands to know answers to about a million questions a day. You must be a short order cook and of course contain that special ability to drop everything at a moments notice to attend to extra needs is a must.
Yet we do these things day in and day out without question. One day a year however we are given recognition. I would like to think God thinks fondly of mothers as well. After all He did put baby Jesus in the care of a Mother did He not.
Being A Mother Also Means We Have Biblical Responsibilities:
In the crazy world that we live in we are to provide comfort to our children. God even uses the comfort of a mother as an example for how He cares for His people. (Isaiah 66:13)Yes a mothers love is an Earthly refection of our Father’s love.
We as mothers are required to make sure our children are brought up with Biblical teachings as their basis. We are their first teachers. Yes their fathers are to teach them about God as well but it is us mothers who are with them constantly. It is us who they see more in the day to day interactions of life. They see how we deal with people, how we carry ourselves, and they even see our short comings. They depend on us to show them what is right and what is wrong. Through our actions we are teaching our daughters how to be mothers and we are teaching our sons what kind of mothers they should choose for their future children.
Which leads me to this. As a mother we need to be grounded in God’s Word. How else are we suppose to teach someone else. The task of giving of ourselves day in and day out is extremely tiresome. Our kids will push us to our breaking point. We will be put in situations where we will have no clue what to do or where things went wrong. Yet when we are grounded in God’s Word we can continue on. We can draw wisdom for dealing with day to day situations in God’s word. But we must stay faithful in our own personal studies to reach our potential.
Trust in the role that God has placed in your hands. Know that you are a mother because God has faith in you and your abilities. Cling to God’s promise that you are never alone. Know that yes you will make mistakes and even in those mistakes learning opportunities for both you and your children are present.
I pray that you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day. That you see all around you that you are loved and who truly special you are. That your role in your family far exceeds the everyday tasks that weigh you down. You are helping train God’s future missionaries, preachers, choir leaders, Sunday School teachers, fathers and yes even mothers.
