I have friends who are dreaming of becoming moms. Some women have children easily. Other women wait patiently. Endure fertility issues, waiting on a spouse, or simply on things to be “perfect” before even trying for another child. I have many girl friends who struggle with being or not being a mom. I hear the cries of their hearts, and I try to encourage them.
My plan this week is not only to listen and encourage them verbally, but to call out to the Lord in prayer for them. As they wait…
Give women peace. Help them call out to you in their fear, in their pain, in their loss, and in their uncertainty. Give us your love. Help that be enough. Know that some are called to be moms now, others later, and some never. We who love children and have children are blessed to be with children daily. Help us who have children rejoice! Raise them well, and realize that instead of being annoyed by the three year old tugging on my arm now to “go outside now mom!”…celebrate the gift. Other women want these little loves too.
