16th September 2018, My husband and I made a special commitment before God in the presence of our friends and family……
Seeing or watching my child serve the living God will be my greatest joy and accomplishment as a mother.
Our decision to be more spiritually sensitive and seek God’s help isn’t out of fear that something bad will happen if we are not rightly positioned or don’t do things right. We are simply acknowledging our dependence on God.
As I reflect on my baby’s milestones, his God-given natural abilities, his periods of frustration and his relentless nature; I am reminded of my need to grow and utilize my spiritual gifts.
As I think of how much effort we put into preparing for our son’s arrival and our daily effort to meet his needs, I am reminded of ….
Whether we compare ourselves with others just to feel like we are better or to wish for their life is a No Go. I can learn from others but I will not strive to be like them.
In our seasons of discomfort, it’s psychologically difficult to see the big picture. God’s silence in some seasons doesn’t mean he is ignoring us.
My transition into motherhood has given me the opportunity to reflect on the numerous ways my mother expressed her love for me before she died more than two decades ago. More importantly, this transition has brought me on a spiritual journey where God’s love is revealed through my son. It has awakened a new sense of daughtership in my walk with God.
My sudden awakening to the love of my mother has brought me wholeness and has given me the closure I needed. I encourage every orphan and anyone who was abandoned by a parent to reflect on the love that ‘perhaps’ existed. Reflect on the times you shared, the moments you remember, and let your heart feel love.
