How can God, a (the) Father, possibly know what it’s like to be a mother? Have you ever thought about that? Hmm, me too! As I have come in and out of precious and grueling seasons of motherhood, while I am so thankful God has seen me through each and every one, I have often wondered, what can God possibly know about being a mom?
Well, I wanted to know! So, I began digging a little, prayed for revelation, read some, and dug even deeper. I quickly realized there is a lot to say on this subject. Let’s just say, the rabbit hole is deep, and I found some things I didn’t really feel like entertaining. However, what I did find was a gentle stir in my heart which led to something else. God never ceases to amaze me!
It all landed me to this final conclusion – God is beyond my comprehension, and I will not (nor was I meant to) understand His ways. However, God not only knows what motherhood is like, but being in the business of creating a woman and designing the delicate and beautiful nature of a mother by His very own hand, He pretty much understands every facet of motherhood. All the triumphs, all the challenges, all the joy and all the sorrow, all the highs and all the lows.
Basically, God gets it! Better yet, He provides us with precious promises to encourage us and tuck within our momma hearts to comfort us and gently say, “I am here, and I understand.”
So, are you ready to get to know the real God? The One who sees you and knows you full well. The One who knows you had a hard day and ended up in tears on the kitchen floor. The One who says, "Take hold of My hand, and just trust Me. The One who truly understands YOU!"
Well then, friend, hang on and get ready, because hope is here, and it is found in the beautiful pages of His Word. Let’s feed Your heart and refresh your soul, all while renewing your mind with nuggets of truth and sweet whispers of God’s precious promises – just for you, sweet momma!
