Moms Are World Changers
As I am trying to write this blog I have a very upset, sick little girl. It’s Sunday and I missed out on a great day at my church. It has been a tough week for me. We went to the Wave Conference this week, which was great, but I really didn’t “feel” like I went to the Wave Conference. It has been one of those weeks where I have continually thought, “Why do I even try? Why do I even go to things like this? Why do I work so hard to go to church and just miss out on everything?”
I know that I am not the only mommy who has felt this way but this week I had a major pity party for myself. Not something I am super proud to admit but just being honest. As I sat in the “cry room” at Wave Church with a few other mommies I began to feel sorry for myself. I was upset because I felt like I was missing out. I felt like I wasn’t receiving the blessing from the sermon like everyone else.
As I looked at all the other tired mommies I was reminded of my mom. As I look back at what she did ever single Sunday I am amazed. Every Sunday she got all four of her children ready for church by herself and then served on Sundays. I never remember her complaining or skipping church because she was tired or it was too hard. She brought us to church when it wasn’t easy or convenient.
She taught us to go to church in all situations. Even when it was hard work and life was hard we went to church.
Proverbs 22:6 (CEV) “Teach your children right from wrong, and when they are grown they will still do right.”
I can tell you that right now it is hard and I don’t see my blessing. I know that it would be easier to just stay home some days. But I know that in a few years my children will be asking to go to church. It will become who they are. I believe that because of my weekly effort and importance that one day they choose to go. Not only will they go to church but they will be part of the church, changing lives and sharing Christ to all they meet. I believe that my children will be world changers because their mommy, although tired at times, chose to bring her children to church and decided to model to them what it truly means to be a follower of Christ.
Psalms 21:6 (CEV) “You have given him blessings that will last forever…”
I can tell you that 28 years later my mom has had her blessing given to her. Every Sunday she has the privilege of seeing all her children serving in God’s house. Beyond that she has the privilege to see all her grandchildren serving in God’s house.
I can tell you that this journey isn’t always easy but the blessing is worth it all! I can’t imagine a bigger blessing then to see my children, grandchildren & great grandchildren serving in God’s house!
