Mother’s Day is quickly approaching ,but ,for many this holiday can be very painful. For some it can be a time of deep depression .The spirit of suicide is extremely prevalent
and pronounced at this time as with many holidays when people tend to feel forgotten or discarded. Let’s not forget the mothers who have lost their children. Whether it be to violence or in the womb. We are still very much Mothers. Let us become more compassionate to the hurting around us. Let us become more sensitive to the heart of the ones who mourn.
A midst all the cards, flowers and gifts how about we remember the mothers who either lost their child(ren) to soon or the mothers who never got a chance to see, hold, touch,smell their child(ren).
Once you’ve carried a child in your womb no matter how long or short the time frame you are and forever will be a mother.
Mother, Jesus knows your hurt.
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
I love how these same verses read in the NLT
So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe.
This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.
So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
Tears may fall this Mother’s Day but please rest in knowing that you are not alone. God’s glorious grace is available to help you through. Don’t isolate yourself and feel as though you have to hide or mask the hurt. Surround yourself with the laughter and friendship of dear ones who love and support you.
I remember the first mother’s day after we lost our first child, I shut completely down. I got into the bed and couldn’t lift my head up off the pillow. I sobbed and sobbed and sobbed. I now know and understand that it was the spirit of depression attacking me and my mind. . But at that time I was for the lack of a better term, “A hot mess” . My husband tried to comfort me but I was inconsolable.
Neither one of us knew then what we were dealing with.
For a few years I would be attacked around Mother’s Day and it would last for great lengths of time. I was unable to function at all. I would shut down and go to bed.
Not until recently have I been freed from that kind of oppression.
I’ve been going through deliverance. Holy Spirit showed me that I was holding onto grief and sorrow. Which was leaving a doorway open for the enemy to use against me.
He showed me that Jesus took my grief and carried my sorrows on the cross. I had been redeemed from them both. I no longer was to carry grief or sorrow.
Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.
People kept telling me that it was ok to grieve and that is in total contradiction to what Jesus had done for me.
I had to cast that care over onto Jesus so that I could walk free in the liberty in which He died for me to have. I had to close off and seal the doorways and portals that I had opened to the enemy.
Mother you to can walk free from grief and sorrow. I pray that this revelation will become yours as well. I pray that the eyes of your understanding will become enlightened.
I thank you that you are sensitive to our hurts. I thank you that you care for us. I thank you that you heal the broken heart and bind up our wounds. Today Father I pray for every mother who has lost their child(ren). I pray complete deliverance from grief and sorrow. I pray that where their is pain you would exchange it for joy and peace. I pray for restoration. Father I ask you for recompense. I ask that they receive seven fold what was stolen from them.
I thank you that it is already done for us now.
In Jesus name.
My prayer is that this has helped you or may help someone you know.
Grace and Peace be multiplied to you.
