The truth is, the hand that rocks the cradle does rule the world. No one will influence your child’s life more than you. No one.
You will write their future one day at a time, one meal, one bath, one lesson, one movie, one kiss, one boo-boo, one hug at a time. Millions of moments and thousands of days add up to a life of purpose when we value each moment and treasure each day. Even the hard days. And the hard days will come.
The days are long mama, I know. You will give and do more than you ever dreamed but you are raising a world changer.
And you know what?
You are a world changer too. In fact, God had you in mind when He gave you your child. He knows you and He chose you before the foundation of the world because He knows you are perfect for the job.
No one but God knows your child as well as you do. I know, you think you’re not good at anything but I wholeheartedly disagree. You are an expert at raising your child. You know all his little quirks and funny habits. You know his personality and how he learns. What he’s good at and what frustrates him. You know his potential and over time, you will learn how to help him fully reach it.
Being a mom comes with some difficult days and some challenging seasons but no matter the challenge, He is with you. He’s there deep in the night as you rock a colicky baby to sleep. He’s there at the doctor’s office when a disability is detected and your perfect vision of a perfect child and a perfect life comes crashing down. He’s there when the income you depended on suddenly disappears. Or when any of the thousand things that can go wrong do go wrong.
He is with you because He says so, mama. “I will never leave you or forsake you.”
Hold on tight to Him and let Him guide you, direct you, refresh you and delight you as you walk through the days and years and seasons with your child. He has a big dream for him and because it’s a big, God-sized dream, He looked all around to find the perfect mom for your precious little one.
And you know what?
He chose you.
Happy Mothers Day, mama.
