Mother's Day

Sometimes the Lord gives me a revelation; Not something new necessarily, but my eyes are more open to something that has been true all along. I've just had one of those moments about motherhood.

Moms come in every shape, form, fashion, color and creed whether intentionally, by choice or not. But in any case, God has allowed a woman to assist in raising a child.

The work a mother does is similar to the work of the Holy Spirit.

1. She shares physical space with her child. The Holy Spirit dwells within us.

2. A good mom teaches her child right from wrong. The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin and reminds us of what Jesus has said.

3. Mothers are good at understanding. We call her and she seems to be good at making everything ok. The Holy Spirit interprets our prayers, moans and groans as well.

Now, don't get it twisted. We are not referring to gender identity, only roles and similarities. The Lord is a Spirit, neither male nor female. Most of the time, God is referred to as Father actually.

As moms, we join God's work in our children's lives. If God lives in us, as we impart God's Word to them, change will happen.

This Mother's Day, remember that moms are called and appointed to this work. No one can mother your children like you!
