I have been thinking about Mother’s Day on and off for the last couple of weeks. While I know it’s a happy occasion for many, including myself, I am also aware that many are very unhappy. I have been praying and asking God to help those who are hurting on this holiday.
We should be thankful for the beautiful memories that have been created with our moms over the years. Mother’s deserve to be honored not just on Mother’s Day, but even more importantly every day of their lives.
Ephesians 6:2-3 KJV, “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.”
In the midst of our celebrating, let’s not forget those who are hurting. Let’s be aware of the souls around us who may need a word of encouragement or a hug. Let’s be sensitive to the reality that some have broken hearts related to their mom, and they need time to heal. Take time out to listen to another persons story if they need you too.
Here are some reasons people may struggle on this special day:
1. They never knew their mom or they knew her but never felt her love.
2. Their mother has passed away.
3. Their child/children have passed away.
4. They have not been able to have children.
5. They are estranged from their children.
Your prayers are needed…
Please say a prayer for those who are hurting on this Mother’s Day. Pray that God will comfort them, and provide them with exactly what they need for healing.
Always be thankful…
Mother’s Day is a time of thanksgiving. First and foremost, we must be thankful to Jesus for the blessings we have received through the love of our mothers. Second, thankful to our mothers for their relentless love and support of us.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s out there!
