HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MOMMA.
We read many articles on how great being a mom is.When we read through them we have this joy which lasts prob a week,then there are those moments that leave you questioning “What is my value”.
While I was researching,I came across this very very powerful message about biblical motherhood.
Momma,Being a mom is not to please your son,or your husband but to please God.
It is a god given career,we need to work diligently.
23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for[a] you serve the Lord Christ.
THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION:
If a stranger were to look upon us,will they be inspired to be a stay at home mom?
Yes there will be lone days,there will be thankless days,there will be messy long days,But in it all how well do we serve god?
Popular culture has made us believe a person’s value come from their career and financial position.And I have succembed to this more times than I can imagine,coming from a dysfunctional household ,the drive to prove myself has always sunk its claws deep into me.
I can’t thank god enough for the number of times god came through a bible reading or another moms blog.
Momma the worlds perspective does not equate with gods perspective.
“Its not more important to die on the field of foreign missions,than to die on the mission field of your own home” — Is a famous quote.You can replace with anything.
“Its not important to die on the field of _______________,than to die on the mission field of your own home”
Your home is important momma,you are important.
When I was a new mom
my cousins sun and subha akka( who were also young moms),
my friend Nanthinee(who is an older mom),
my aunt Charlotte and my other mom Kathy( older moms with empty nests)
were an inspiration for me to chose being a stay at home mom.
Thank you Moms!
I can only pray be it whatever season in life I may be in , to be an Inspiration too.
