Peace 107 wants to wish all of our mothers a Happy Mother’s Day 2017! Moms come in all shapes and sizes and motherhood is defined differently for each woman. But a good guide is the ultimate book of life: God’s Word.
Turning to the Bible for direction and help is something Christians do regularly, but I think Moms spend more time seeking God’s face when it comes to their children. There is no greater responsibility than raising and teaching your children and it’s a bigger job then you ever thought it would be! Sometimes it can be overwhelming and even the best of us and most organized feel woefully inadequate.
But just for Sunday, let yourself enjoy the day and celebrate what you have accomplished! You are a warrior with a lion’s heart and will protect your children to the end. I have heard many times that there is no love on Earth stronger than a mother’s love. I believe that. No one loves you like your mom. When the world turns away, Mom will still be there. Isn’t it an amazing thing?
The only thing stronger is God’s love for you in that he gave his only son so that you should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16) I sometimes think about Mary having to watch her son be crucified on a cross. It hurts my heart just to imagine, doesn’t it yours?
So we celebrate you, Moms, and all your sacrifice and devotion and love. Whether your kids are young, grown, near or live far away…whether they are here on Earth or already with Jesus, you will always be a mom and we celebrate you this weekend.
