Mothers Show Up

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- May 2, 2011

“Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.” John 19:25-27

Mothers show up. They show up at the birth of their child. They show up when the baby wakes up, cries, is hungry or needs changing. Moms show up at the bus stop, in the car pool line, at teacher conferences, as homeroom moms, and at ball games. They show up to wash their child’s clothes, clean their rooms, help with homework, and feed their bellies.

The Lord put relentless and forgiving love in the hearts of mothers. Moms cannot not care for their children, because this is how Christ made them. Why does a godly mom show up in quiet supplication for the soul of their son or daughter? Why does a woman of God go to church faithfully with her child in tow, so that child can hear the truth about Jesus’s love?

These women of faith keep showing up on behalf of their Savior because, like the mother of Jesus, they love Jesus. The love of Christian moms flows out of the love for their Lord. Their Heavenly Father first loves them, so they in turn can deeply love their loved ones with the Lord’s everlasting love. Indeed, you show up to be loved by Jesus, so you can show up to love for Jesus. Mothers who love their children best are first loved by Christ.

“I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also” (2 Timothy 1:5).

Lastly, loving moms show up during the darkest days of sorrow. They keep coming back to the bedside of their little one languishing with illness. The stamina of a mom over her sick child sometimes seems supernatural. And it is—because the Holy Spirit is their supply. He is there to give you the support you need to be the mom Christ has called you to be. Stay true to showing up with your Savior each day. He will equip and empower you to be the mom for your children. Show up for Jesus and He will show up for you.

“I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD.” And he worshiped the LORD there” (1 Samuel 1:27-28).

Do I reflect the Lord’s love for me, so that I can better love my child?
