“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”
Many times people have looked at me with pity over my condition of being a mother of five children. I have never felt sorry for myself one moment. Rather, I have felt the most blessed to have the privilege to parent. Is it tiring? Sure. Difficult to have the wisdom and strength to consistently nurture my children in the LORD? Yes. I fall short, but thank God for allowing me to have these sweet children.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there -not just moms of natural born children, but moms of adopted children and spiritual children. God bless you and enable you to raise godly children for His glory!
Lord, help moms reading this blog to have courage to parent the precious children You have granted us to steward. Help single moms to know that you are enough.
