The musings of a childless Mother
Child, I desire obedience rather than sacrifice, not because I want control but I love you and know you and I know the outcome. I feel responsible for who you are. I love you.
Be strong child, see yourself the way I see you, totally lovely, strong and perfect. Be strong, stand firm, be confident, be happy with you are. Don’t compare yourself to others; it will steal your confidence and joy.
Child you lack nothing, I have given you everything you need. I am your provider, be thankful, be content. Be wholehearted. Give everything you are to all that you do. Treat yourself and others kindly, gently.
I remember your first days. I loved seeing you run around naked and unashamed before you knew what sin was. Then, when you needed clothes, I clothed you, physically and in my robe of righteousness.
I want you to know, deep in your heart that you are loved, yes YOU! I desire that you be solidly rooted in MY LOVE. That is where your power comes from, My love. I want you to understand how wide, how deep, how long and how high is my love for you.
I am your parent, I love giving to you and seeing your joy complete. Don’t be hesitant to ask for the things I long to give you. Ask for anything I have and it is yours. If I don’t have it, you don’t need it. I already gave you my best gift, my Son, my only Son. If I gave Him up for you what do you think I will hold back from you? I gave you my Spirit, in Him you have all the love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control you will ever need.
