You're Not "Just" a Mother
Driving in the van, the familiar tune "Mary, Did You Know?" came on.
Mary's motherhood is nothing but extraordinary:
carrying our Savior for 9 months,
going through labor in a staple,
and raising the Savior into a grown man.
It's easy to see that her mothering was special.
You may say, well my kids are not the Savior.
So, I'm just an ordinary mother.
Friend, you cannot be more wrong.
Every precious child you care for is a beautiful soul God has created.
Just like how God had a great plan for Jesus to fulfill on this Earth,
He also has a great plan for YOUR CHILD to fulfill on this Earth.
Your children can do works GREATER than what Jesus did.
How crazy is that?!!
Mama, your job as a caretaker and nurturer for your children MUST NOT be discredited or minimized.
You are important.
What you do MATTERS.
You are preparing your children for all the things God has in store for them.
That alone never makes you "just" a mother.
