They Rise Up and Call Her Blessed

Posted by | May 04, 2015 | Family, Identity, Pastors' Wives | No Comments

As we are approaching Mother’s Day, I want us to look at some verses from Proverbs 31 that talk about a Godly woman and I want us to look at those verses in light of our Mothers. Whether your Mom is alive or has gone on, let’s take some time to thank the Lord for our Moms.

I am blessed to have a very Godly Mom that is turning 85 this year and I treasure the time I get to spend with her. She always made sure all six of us kids were in church growing up, even though my Dad didn’t go.

My three sisters and I have a “girl weekend” with her every year around Mother’s Day and we just had that fun weekend a couple weeks ago. Oh how I love those times and thank the Lord for every year we get to be together.

If you weren’t blessed to have a Godly mother, then I would encourage you to be that Godly mother to your children that will rise up and call you blessed.

“Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: Many women do noble things but you surpass them all, Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 31:28-30

I pray you will have a blessed Mother’s Day and if God hasn’t blessed you with children, may you have a wonderful day as well, as you are a spiritual Mother to many I am sure. I fall into that category and I thank God for all the surrogate children we have all over the country.

Mother’s Day used to be very emotional and difficult, until I realized God had a different plan for me and although I don’t have any biological children He has put many, many children in my life that I have been able to mentor and love as if they were my own. So wherever God has you, allow Him to use you.

Happy Mother’s Day!
