Jesus asked, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” Then he pointed to his disciples and said, “Look, these are my mother and brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother!”

I pray that Mother’s Day was beautiful for you all!
To be honest, I had some MAJOR favoritism issues this year.
The Lord really had to deal with my emotions and the increasingly hardening of my heart.
“Can a mother forget the infant at her breast,
walk away from the baby she bore?
But even if mothers forget,
I’d never forget you—never.”
This scripture comforted me, checked me, made me step out of myself & that victim mentality, and consider compassion.
I was unfair into allowing my emotions (which can change easily,) create amnesia in me of how GREAT of a mother I have. I know the mother, that the scripture was referring to, IS my mother. It would be out of character for her to have ever forgotten me at her breast. And I’m confident in knowing that she would have never walked away from me; to even now in my adulthood.
If, she, ever, did… The Lord said He would NEVER forget me!
He comforted me by showing that He will be there, even, if, my Mama, (one that I highly doubt to ever leave,) left.
Once my heart was exposed for its ugliness, could I then feel compassion for those whose mother did forget them at her breast as she walked away from the baby she bore.
I felt compassion for those who were expecting to celebrate their first mother’s day this year & those feeling hopeless in that they may never experience it.
I thought about those who were reminded of all of the abuse & trauma their mother inflicted upon them.
I thought of those who could not physically be with their mother, may it be finances, family conflict, distance, or death.
I thought of those who may sink when calling one that did not birth them, mother; and those who did not give birth but are made conscious of this each year.
I prayed for those who had anything less than a perfect mother’s day. I prayed against crazy emotions, dissension, and against Satan by Jesus’ power.
I prayed that they felt the Father’s love & were reminded that, ‘Even If…’
