Dear Young Mother,
You may feel invisible during this season of life. You aren’t. We serve El Roi, the God who sees us (Genesis 16:13). You are seen. You are known. Your selfless love and service, though imperfect, matter for the Kingdom. You, dear momma, are changing the world as you raise up the next generation.
Your life did not begin when you began raising children, nor will it end when they become adults. Your life is for God’s glory. And for this season, you get to glorify Him by caring for His children.
Over the span of six years, the Lord gave me four sons. When they were all littles and I forgot something, people would laugh it off and assure me I was suffering from “mom brain”. Well, I’m seventeen years in, and I’m hoping the excuse of “mom brain” still applies!
The truth is, moms easily forget things. In the chaos of caring for our families, our minds are never truly focused on any one thing completely. We are a distracted bunch. Mothers are notorious multi-taskers, which sounds impressive, in theory, but practically means that something always gets missed. Ladies, we don’t want to miss the truth. I’d like to remind you of a few truths of your role as mother. Let’s step out of the day-to-day view and span our vision a bit wider to see the bigger picture.
