The High Calling of Motherhood
I'm afraid today is rapidly falling into the category of "one of those days" where nothing is going straight-forwardly! On days such as these, it is all too easy to lose sight of what I am trying to do as a mother, as life descends into an endless stream of nose wiping and nappy changing.
"What is involved in motherhood? After birth pangs bring children into this world, there come years of life pangs. It is a mother's task and privilege to oversee the forging of a personality in her sons and daughters. For this she must set a tone in the home which builds strong character...She is building men and women for God. Results may not be visible until she has laboured for fifteen or twenty years. Even when her task ends the true measure of her work awaits the full maturity of her children." Motherhood is indeed a high calling. It is a tremendous privilege but at times it can also be the hardest job in the world. Thankfully, though, if God calls us to it, he will also provide the help and strength we require.
