A DAY AS A MOTHER: Don't Compromise It Away


One thing I can say about being a mother - no two days are ever alike. A day as a mother brings happiness, joy, tears, discipline, but most of all in it brings love. We mothers must be well prepared for each day. We must keep our minds and eyes open to changes and adversities that may happen. That is why it is so vital to apply the Word of God to our lives daily so we can be equipped parents to raise children who will live productive lives.

As a mother, there are times when we feel like "hey" I need a raise! If mothers were paid a salary for every position we hold, we would all be millionaires. Think about your days; you are a teacher, doctor, lawyer, taxi driver, vet, and volunteer. The list goes on and on.

We must be proud of being mothers, and be the best we can. The impact we have on our children is priceless! Even though the trying times of teen years, as we immerse ourselves in the Word of God, seek true counsel and prayer, we can be victorious. Pretty soon we will look back at it and say,...Boy, we made it!

As a mother, I must say, "I do love it"! Certain things have to be cultivated in our lives, but each and every mother has the God-given potential to be a great mother. Proverbs 31:11-12, The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and no evil, all the days of her life...vs.15 She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household...vs. 28 Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her.

Most women can give birth to children, but how many can be called a "Great Mother?" When a woman becomes a mother, her life totally changes. To be there for your children is such a rewarding task.

Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart". One important point I must make is whatever way we train our children that is the way they will go! Very important not to compromise when it comes to training your children. Always be willing to change. Each year you should grow, incorporate something different that wasn't there previously. Never let condemnation set in your lives. We do make mistakes in training our children, one thing I must add as we abide and are instructed by the word of God we cannot fail. I see many teenagers that have no sense of direction and no sense of real love.

Some parents have made the choice of having a career, money, education and other luxuries over their skills in parenting. There's nothing wrong with any of these things, but our children should not be compromised. A lot of our children are basically left to fend for themselves, because of the choices their parents make.

It's time to get back to the basics in parenting, so our children will not become menaces to society. A day as a mother is a day like no other: Every word your child says will always refer back to mother!
