Never forget their Heavenly Father

-a-mothers-prayerWritten by my lovely wife Closhell Sneed

“So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.”  Matthew 7:11

As a mother I find myself fighting so hard to meet the needs of our children. I have made their needs my top priority in the quest to be a good mom. I often have to remind myself how much God loves them. I have to stop my obsessing and remember their Heavenly Father has already prepared a path for them.

Can I possibly care for them better than God can? Of course not, I can only do what God gives me power and wisdom to do.  I dearly love my sons, but I have to remember I have been given a gift. It is my responsibility to guide, care, and teach them how much God loves them, but God is ultimately their Father. He will care for them.

A mother’s prayer:

Heavenly Father, I come to you thanking you for the blessing of being a parent. I thank you for considering me worthy of two of your precious sons. God I pray you will grant me wisdom and faith to train them in the way you would have them go. Please increase my faith so when doubt creeps in I can fight to remember your love. I thank you for the promises in your word, which always strengthens me. In Jesus name, Amen.

Happy Mothers Day!

Proverbs 31:10-30 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.

She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.
She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls. She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers. She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy. When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet.

She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple. Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes.

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
