I truly hope all my readers had the happiest Mother's Day of all. I did.
There was a wonderful service this past Sunday at Calvary. The sermon was based on 1 Samuel, the
story of the Birth of Samuel which is firstly the story of Hannah a
woman who wanted to be a mother very badly for she had been barren for a
long time. So, Hannah prayed to the Lord and and thanked Him, and she
was blessed with a son whom she named Samuel and whom she gave to the
Lord. "I prayed to the Lord, and the Lord has
granted me what I asked of him, So, now I give him to the Lord."
1Sam:27 The point made by the pastors at this Sunday's service was that
Hannah finally put her total trust in the Lord and for that she was
blessed. In return, Hannah returned Samuel to Him what He had given her.
As mother's we think that we did it all, and we should get all the
credit; but the credit really goes to our Father in Heaven. Raise well
your God given children, give back to Him!
Mothers all too often today, want to be the Super Mom! I am not saying you can't, you can if you rely on the Heavenly Father and give Him the credit for your ability to be a super mom.
I saw a photo on facebook put by a mom who thinks she has to take it upon herself to be everything for her son. I can telly you that if you think that way, you are mistaken; especially if you are trying to raise a God given child. Sons and daughters need to know who you count on for help in this fallen world. Let them know of your faith and they will have faith too!
