Thoughts from a Bethel Mom on Mother's Day

As a mother, when I think of Mother’s Day, I think of messy handprint art projects, half-torn paper flowers, and wildflowers (with some weeds mixed in) from our backyard. But, this typical day isn’t exactly what Hallmark says it should be for many in our midst.

Because we live in a fallen world, Mother’s Day can be a difficult day for some. Whatever the cause of your tears, God’s Word speaks comfort into your life.

Perhaps your mother is no longer with you.  Our God is the God who “does not leave us as orphans” (John 14:18), He is with us.


Perhaps your child is no longer with you. Your heavenly Father also knows what it feels like to watch His child die – He knows the grief of your heart. 

Perhaps your heart’s desire is to be called “Mommy”, yet there is none to call you by that name.  The great promise for you in Proverbs 3:5-6 is that you can have every confidence that He will continue His good work in you and your life and frees you from having to understand how He will do that perfect work or what it will look like (see also Phil 1:6). 


Whatever your struggle, God sees your tears.  What can we do when our hearts are broken?  Start by worshipping the Lord in spite of and through our tears (see 2 Samuel 12:19-20).  Rest in who He is. Rest in every promise of His word.  Rest in the comfort that only He can give.
