It’s like a special club; Motherhood…and it’s truly gender specific, to say the least.
What a gift the Father has given to His daughters, to allow us to bear and nurture children! And through the miracle of adoption, even women who cannot give birth can still know the tenacious love of a child in their keeping.
What heartbreaking pain we can suffer and what inconceivable joy we can have all because we are mothers. Yet in reality we are merely caretakers, very attached to our work.
Our children are on loan from God and entrusted to our safekeeping for as long as He deems right. We find the direction and guidance needed when we turn them over to Him.
He knows each child intimately, ever since He began knitting each one together in the womb.
Yes, motherhood is a very special club. And it’s an honor to be invited by God to join.
(From the book – “God Answers Moms’ Prayers”, by Allison Bottke)
This spoke to my heart as I was reading it, reminding me that children are indeed a blessing!
Too often we forget, because when they are little we never seem to get enough sleep. When they are teenagers, our stress level keeps us from resting. And even when they are adults and our nests are empty, they are still in our hearts and in our prayers.
In spite of the worry and sometimes pain, being blessed with children truly is a gift from God!
“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.” Psalm 127:3
