When I became pregnant with my son I knew that my life would never be the same, I just didn’t know what to expect.
It wasn’t until months after giving birth that I finally accepted the call to motherhood.
I understood that motherhood was NOT going to be perfect. That there would be good days but there would also be very hard days, as I had already experiences, but despite the feelings of giving up, that was just NOT an option.
I realized that motherhood was much more than changing diapers, feeding a baby, trying to put a fussy child to sleep, squeezing in some time to wash clothes or finding time tidy up the house.
Motherhood was more than what I had ever thought it was.
I realized that my questions, concerns, thoughts, hopes, and insecurities were shared with women around the world for THEIR children.
I realized that motherhood was not a journey that I had to go through alone as many think. Motherhood is a ministry in itself!
So what is the Motherhood Ministry?
The Motherhood Ministry is a sisterhood.
It’s a sisterhood of women who all carry similar responsibilities, similar struggles, but the same LOVE for their children and SAME love for the giver of life, Jesus Christ.
It’s a sisterhood of women who understand that motherhood gets rough, but ultimelty God will never forsake us, and will ALWAYS renew our stregths
The Motherhood Ministry is not exclusive, if not inclusive to ALL mothers from every walk in life. United we are stronger!
We’ve all carried a child or children in our wombs. We’ve all birthed children. We all have worried about the futures of our children. We all desire for our children to have a fervent drive to seek God and follow in His path.
But what really brings us together is LOVE.
God has not called us to wear the weight of the world on our shoulders which is why this ministry is so important.
Becoming a mother for the first time can be very scary and sometimes very intimidating. Being completely responsible for another human being, in general, can be very intimidating! But the good news is that you’re not alone! Your church doesn’t need a ministry called the “motherhood ministry” for you to know that you are already apart of one.
So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Let us never forget to lift each other up, pray for each other, support one another and just be present in each other’s lives!
