A Blessing For Mommas With Weak Knees

 

Never have I been more aware of how fragile I am than in mothering. The sheer responsibility of bringing a tiny baby home almost did me in. The enemy knew all the chinks in my heart and played on those… reminding me of my own wounds… my failures… my inadequacies. How could I be a momma? Joy and fear were all mixed into one, both at levels I had never known.

One early mothering moment just weeks after we’d brought our firstborn home, the Lord clearly gave me this verse: He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And gently lead those with young. Isaiah 40:11

O Mama, Jesus loves the little children.

And, did you see it?  He loves their parents, too.

You can settle in.

He will fill your home with Himself.

Your main job is seeking Him.

He said, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you“.
Matthew 6:33

Those weak knees,

They are a gift.

To remind us of the One who sees,

The One who knitted this gift,

Who hand picked us as Mommas.

Those weak knees,

those tired eyes,

They are a gift.

To remind us of the One who sees,

the only One, who has the strength we need,

the wisdom, the peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and purity…

That our children need.

Bless you with a continued awareness of

our fragile state.

So that your weak knees will find the peace

and strength that every Momma needs

at the Throne of Grace.

In Christ Alone,

Diana
