Motherhood is a Sisterhood...unrivaled by any other (except perhaps, Grandmother-hood). So if you are a mom, you are my beloved sister...
And sometimes we mama-sisters just need to be daughters...Abba's (Hebrew for Daddy) little girls.
So this Mothers' Day, let us hear these restful words of promise from our Abba:
1. Open wide...and be filled...
I am the Lord your God...Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. Psalm 81:10
2. Dwell in Him...and find refuge...
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty... He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge... Psalm 91:4
3. Lift up your eyes...and receive help...
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from?My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2
This Mother's Day...
may you open your heart wide to befilled with Him and His provision! (Psalm 81)
may you dwell in Him and find refuge and protection from all dangers under Abba's wings! (Psalm 91)
may you lift up the eyes of your heart to your sovereign Creator Abba God for the help you need -- strength, safety, and stability! (Psalm 121)
Yes, even we mamas still need to be Abba's Little Girls :)
Total Praise Lord I will life my eyes to the hills Knowing my help is coming from You Your peace you give me In time of the storm You are the source of my strength You are the strength of my life I lift my hands in total praise to you Lord, I will lift my eyes to the hills Knowing my help is coming from You Your peace you give me In times of the storm You are the source of my strength You are the strength of my life I lift my hands in total praise to you Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen
Psalm 121 is very memorize-able.
When my kids were very young we used to take car trips to New Jersey to visit my family. It was a l-o-n-g drive, so one year we memorized Psalm 121 together as we rode along. To this day, I have fond memories and sweet emotions whenever I read or hear that comforting psalm.
Why not spend a little time this Mothers Day memorizing Psalm 121 together. Bask in the care and protection of your Abba Father!
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deut 6:4-8
