Waiting for Motherhood

By Loveandgrace @loveandgrace20

There are some holidays that are difficult to bear when one is still unmarried. For those without children, Mother’s Day can be a difficult day to get through.

For many years I sat in my seat at church on those Sunday mornings…a little sad and somewhat ashamed that at my age, I still was not a mother. Some years they ask all the mothers to stand and give them beautiful flowers.  Humbly, I remained in my seat with the young girls and the men. There was another one or two like me, but I don’t believe any of us found this comforting.

It is rare these days to find women in their thirties who have not experienced the blessing of having a baby, yet there is a group out there who knows all too well the ticking of the biological clock.  The hands on the biological clock is moving forward and all the world is telling you that you must hurry before it is too late.  Fortunately I found a way to have faith greater than the clock and learned how to put God’s promises before the opinions of human kind.

Praise be to God that in these days science has made it possible for older women to have successful pregnancies. Women in their forties are having healthy children. And if you are like me you are learning how to enjoy waiting on God anyway so it is all good. 

If you can relate to me, pushing forty, and still longing for a child, I sincerely pray that you find comfort and assurance in God this weekend. I plan to enjoy the day with my mother and women in my life who are like mothers to me and give God the praise for all He has done. In God’s perfect time and will all things are possible. I remember Sarah and Isaac today, and know that nothing is too hard for God.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the beautiful single mothers in the world.  May God bless you and prosper you this Mother’s Day and forever.

Love always,
