(Here is a bit of encouragement from Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies. Mother's keep passing along the word about the blessings of being a mother.)
"How we need to continue getting out the truth and encouragement to the mothers of this nation. I talked to a young mother yesterday with two children. They are now off at school and I said to her, "Are you hoping to have another baby?" "Oh no," she replied. "I am enjoying my freedom too much now they are at school!"
Why do mothers want freedom from their children? Isn't this our destiny? We have been given the incredible privilege to house within our womb an eternal soul that will live forever and then nurture and train that child to do powerful and mighty works in this life. And we are molding them for eternity! What could be more powerful? Why do mothers want to do inconsequential things when they could be doing eternal things? Why do they want to spend their time on frivolous and "lesser" things when they could be doing "greater" things? I think it is because they are brainwashed by the liberal media and humanistic values of this society. This was not the psyche of the women of old; it was their highest honor to bear children.
Another mother mentioned to my daughter, "Don't you think it is time we stopped having children? This is all my husband and I have been doing since we married." Well, what does she want to do now? Become barren and boring? Go to parties? Do her own thing? Give up the highest calling God has given to her?!
May God give mothers His vision instead of their being filled with a a worldly vision. I think we should memorize and confess these powerful Scriptures each day, "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world, If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away and the lust therof; but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever: ! John 2 :15 - 17."
