Happy Mother's Day: Our Celebration to Mom...

 

Our Mother's Day Special is a celebration to all the moms in our lives and those who are just like mom. We pray for moms, grand moms, aunties, cousins, sisters, and friends of the family who have been there and paved the way for us. We pray that we can aspire to be like you, that we can learn from you, and that God will bless you mightily for your work in raising us, rearing us, and handing out a few pow-pows when we needed it!

So let's turn our attention to a few great moms and ways to celebrate them. And, we've included a special section below on those estranged from their family and those who don't have family - because God loves us and calls us His Sons and Daughters.

 

 

A Special Mother's Day Message: Because She Sacrificed

Mother's Day was especially harsh during with Covid and many are still struggling to recover. Moms were stretched thin and went above and beyond to provide. They fasted, prayed, cried, fought back tears, went before God in prayer, and they did a lot of math homework and internet troubleshooting. Hence, it's a time to honor moms - and those like mom.

We just wanted to tell you that we love you and we're so proud of you so please don't give up and don't look back. Keep moving forward in God, Moms. We need you and we love you. You inspire us, you encourage us, and you uplift us and we pray God uplifts YOU and honors you!

Enjoy this touching message for moms...

 

 

Mother's Day Favorite Verses...

Proverbs 31:10-31 

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Proverbs 19:26-27 

He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach. Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.

 

 

Ephesians 6:1-3 

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

 

  

1 Corinthians 13:4-8  

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

 

 

 

Psalm 127:3

“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is His reward." 

 

"Believe for a miracle." We honor moms and those like mom for their sacrifice. We pray, Lord, please bless them MIGHTILY! Moms, keep speaking over yourselves. Believe God for what you need. He will help with the bills, that sickness, job, problem, child, or relationship. Keep reading your Bible. You will see help soon. And, remember, everything is subject to change. "Late in the midnight hour, God's gonna' turn it around. It's gonna' work in your favor. You are blessed!" Glory to God!

 

What If You Don't Have Family? Or, You're Estranged?

While Mother's Day is celebrated, there are some who might be having a hard time. They may have lost their mom or there might be a mom who lost their child. We saw this on the news where small children died in an apartment fire. And, we know there are parents who lost their children to a sickness, drugs, neighborhood violence, or in some other way.

There are also moms and children who are estranged from each other. If you're grieving or experiencing heartache or a loss, please remember that Father God is with you and He loves you so much.

God is our Heavenly Father but He's also our loving parent. His tender love is here for us and He hurts and grieves when we do. Hence, we invite you to please let Father God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost into your heart to help bring healing. Jesus had to give encouragement to Mary after Lazarus died and she lost her faith. She didn't know she'd soon see Lazarus again! And, for moms that lost a child or baby, you will be reunited in Heaven one day, praise God!

God also acknowledges how much He loves us in Isaiah 49:15-16a, "Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands." 

 

You Are Not Abandoned: Seeing God as Our Father AND Mother

Another important point to remember about Father God is that He doesn't want us to feel like we have to go it alone. So many moms endured severe stress during Covid and even now many are trying to regroup and pick up the pieces. Some are staring at the overwhelming bills and saying, "Where do I start?"

Others put so much into maintaining a sense of balance for their families, they might feel like have nothing left for themselves. However, we learn from Psalm 68:6 that God doesn't abandon us. "God sets the lonely in families." We also know that God says to put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. And, old things are passed away. Like the Bible says, "Let the weak say, I am strong." Go on and testify! So, put your anointing oil on and call on God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost for help.

Jesus, gave us the Holy Spirit as our Comforter. He said, "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also," John 14:18-19.

We can live confidently in God because He's a loving Father who wants us to call on Him and listen for His voice. He also doesn't want us living in fear, worrying about bills, a sickness, child, loss, or tragedy. Or, that one problem that looks impossible. And, He wants us to have faith and don't doubt. God says, "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me," Hebrews 13:5b-6.

Rest in God and know He will always make the way. Whatever it is you need, put it in God's hands. Ask God for help and trust Him for the impossible. Ask Him to make the way. Put a demand on God and say, "It's no problem for God." Father God is all-knowing and all-powerful and He has said prophetically several times through us, "Tell them I will help with those bills. I will help with what they need." I hear God saying, "Yes, I will help with what you need. Keep speaking in tongues and calling on Me." With God, you will not fail. To God be the glory!

      In closing, I'm reminded of a time when I was at Macy's waiting on my mom who was shopping. I yelled into the dressing room, "Mom?" and 4-5 ladies all turned from different directions - along with my mom, and said, "Yes?" They all shared a laugh while I just shook my head.

      God bless our moms - and those like mom. We praise God for you. And, we thank God that He's a loving Father who is here for us! Keep calling on Him for what you need. He is our Comforter and help is coming soon. Believe for what you need and keep standing on God's Word, not man. Glory to the Most High God!
