One thing I can say about being a mother-- no two days are ever alike. A day as a mother brings happiness, joy, tears, discipline, but most of all in it brings love. We mothers must be well prepared for each day.
We must keep our minds and eyes open to changes and adversities that may happen. That is why it is so vital to apply the Word of God to our lives daily, so we can be quipped parents to raise children who will live productive lives. As a mother and wife, there are times when I feel like "hey" I need a raise! If mothers were paid a salary for every position we hold, we would all be millionaires.
Think about your days; you are a teacher, doctor, lawyer, taxi driver, vet, and volunteer. The list goes on and on. We must be proud of being mothers, and be the best we can.
The impact we have on our children is priceless! Even through the trying times of teen years, as we emmerse ourselves in the Word of God, seek true counsel and prayer, we can be victorious. Pretty soon we will look back at it and say,?Boy we made it! As a mother, I must say, "I do love it"! Certain things have to be cultivated in our lives, but each and every mother has the God-given potential to be a great mother. Proverbs 31:11-12, The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and no evil, all the days of her life?vs.
15 She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household?vs. 28 Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her. Most women can give birth to children, but how many can be called a "Great Mother?" When a woman becomes a mother, her life totally changes.
To be there for your children is such a rewarding task Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart. One important point I must make is whatever way we train our children that is the way they will go! Very important not to compromise when it comes to training your children. Always be willing to change. Each year you should grow, incorporate something different that wasn't there previously. Never let condemnation set in our lives.
We do make mistakes in training our children, one thing I must add as we abide & are instructed by the word of God we cannot fail. I see many teenagers that have no sense of direction and no sense of real love. Some parents have made the choice of having a career, money, education and other luxuries over their skills in parenting. There's nothing wrong with any of these things, but our children should not be compromised.
A lot of our children are basically left to fend for themselves, because of the choices their parents make. As parents we must make sure we are in good standing with God, because if we are not, it will only bring destruction to our children. If parents would realize they have to stand before God and give an account of what they did or did not share with their children, they would take God's Word more seriously.
Don't compromise being a good mother in anyway. Whatever situation we go through we must remember - This Too Shall Pass! Copyright (c) 2007 Iris Shamble.
