A Mothers touch is different. It seems Dad always says, “Go ask your mother”. One thing about being a mother, the touch of love, joy, protection, and care comes naturally. These are just a few attributes a mothers touch produce. When your child is sick or not feeling well-who does he call? Mothers! Dad could be sitting right next to your child. But nothing is like a Mothers Touch!
When you find out you are going to be a mother, you change physically and emotionally. Preparing for this new role is challenging, most of all it can be rewarding for you and your children. Along with the touch of a mother, we must also make plans to meet our children needs–financially, spiritually and emotionally. God’s Word has given us clear instruction for training our child. Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. That touch of instruction carries great rewards, however motherhood is not easy! We can’t give up on any little obstacle: We must be determined to be the best mother we can.
We can’t let challenges in life consume us. Find time to relax, read, enjoy a brisk walk, a soothing bath to keep your mind from the hustle, you encounter in life. As you continue to apply the Word of God to your life, you will find your mind renewed, and you will achieve victories!
Once you become a mother, it is imperative to be there for your children. It is a must! Setting a career aside for the first five years of your child’s life can give him/her the best start in life. Remember that a Mothers Touch is like no other. One thing I know we all will agree on is time can never be replaced; money can always be earned. Many things we make commitments to are just other ways to fill a void in our life. Applying the principles and teachings from the Word of God gives clear instructions and directions to help us be the best mothers can. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts I think towards you says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
You get out of motherhood what you put into it. I see many teens left to fend for themselves and it hurts my heart when I talk with them. I learn they have no sense of direction or value on their lives. Isn’t that sad? We can’t make excuses for our children’s improper behavior. Granted there are some strong willed children who need to be dealt with according to the Word of God. Our children will at times bring disappointments and even rebellion, but one thing I’ve learned was not to dwell on the problem, but to concentrate on the Word and prayer. Also seeking counsel from friends whose children reflect their child rearing is a big plus. There is so much in our children we need to bring out to see dreams and goals come to fruition.
Be determined you will do all you can do as a Mother, because it seems all that our children do seems to point back to their Mother.
