Happy Mothers Day to all you Proverbs 31 women out there. Our Pastor shared a wonderful sermon on Mothers today. He spoke about how much we do for our husbands and children not to mention communities, how we strive to care for our families and be everything to everyone…how we strive to be a Proverbs 31 woman….and yet the reality is we are not and cannot be perfect, supermoms…we still need Jesus. He exhorted husbands and children to stop and realize that Moms need love, encouragement, exhortation, protection, care and acknowledgement because it is very hard to be a Proverbs 31 woman…it is impossible. He exhorted Mom’s to trust in the Lord with all our hearts, because things won’t go according to our plans and yes children and husbands do mess up even when we have done everything humanly possible to make sure they don’t. In all our ways we need to acknowledge Him and know that as organized, smart, creative and energetic we might think we are…He still plans our steps, He is still in control and His ways are always better even when we don’t see any good in them at the moment. What a joy to know that in the trials of motherhood and of being a wife, we have Jesus to lean on.
Happy Mothers Day!Know that as a child of the King – He loves you more than anyone. He will direct your path. You can trust fully in Him!
Thought for today…
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil.
It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. Pro 3:5 -8
