We are like Sarah. Though we are too selfish, too messy, and too flawed, God chose us. He chose to love us and to make us the mother of children.
Whether you have one child or ten, whether they are from your womb or are adopted or are your spiritual children, YOU are God’s Sarah. You are His choice and His love. You are HIS pick to be queen of your home and of your kingdom.
We care for our homes and children, not as slaves, but as daughters of the King and as the Bride of Christ.
Our “humble” work sometimes feels like endless exhaustion. It may seem like sacrifice and striving. But God says, to she who endures, to she who overcomes, “You will sit with me on my throne. You will reign with me.”
The greatest kingdom work is serving. As mothers, we have the opportunity to serve in many different ways, every single day. Jesus didn’t come to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45).
If you are weary and discouraged, asked God to encourage you and strengthen your heart. Reach out to a friend and ask her to pray for you today. God has given you everything you need to be a mother and queen of your home. You are not alone!
