Dear Mama

Dear Mama

Together with kindness and in understanding, let’s take this time to self reflect. I am here to inspire, encourage, and remind you that God has given us the most important weapon we have to fight the enemy, his Word.

Now let’s dress our soul like we dress our bodies, EVERYDAY!

Dear Mama

“Only take care, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things that a your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. Make them known to your children and your children’s children.” Deuteronomy 4:9 CEV

Mothers have one of the most influential and important jobs in the world, as well as one of the most difficult. We build homes that protect, provide peace, in a sacred space to rest our minds as well as our bodies from the outside world. We are always ready to help, we are excellent event planners, we teach as a living example, we safely chauffeur, and might I add we are great drivers, we know how to stretch a dollar, yes, we can reinvent just about anything, including our closets.  I shop in mine all the time, we make the best soups, that provides a healing touch through love, and we encourage our children to get in there, and change the world.

My Mama raised three girls; she cared about what’s in our hearts. She could hear if we were okay just by the sound of our voices. She looks beyond our faults, to see what we can be, that is the power of mama. Even with all the things she had to do, she seemed to always find time for us. These days when all of us girls get together with our mama, it’s laughter, plenty of smiles, talking, and good food. She continues to show us, the unconditional love, keeping us close to not only her, but each other.

Throughout His years of ministry on earth, Jesus included women—in word and action. He deemed us worthy of concern and healing, even when others didn’t. Our Savior refused to leave women to fend for themselves. He met us at the point of our needs, displaying His generous love and marvelous power. Here are some promises for moms to think on: you are loved, you are not condemned, you are included, you are accepted, you aren’t alone, you are wonderfully made, you are free, you are God’s, you are chosen, and you are no longer a slave to sin.    

Women like: Jeal, Abigail, Esther, and Apphia are women mentioned in the Bible who are worthy of our attention. Their stories spring to life with encouragement, hope, and wisdom. Some are heroes, and others were prophets. All were women who had faith in God, their stories display His glory.

As we look around the world today, we see moms filling a variety of roles: Judges, educators, lawyers, doctors, journalist, scientist, business owners, state representatives, and yes, the vice president of the United States of America.

Remember we are each others keep, and the only time we should be looking down on someone is when we are helping them up.
