To the Jesus-loving Momma’s out there whose hearts are aching & breaking 💔 over the babies we once held in our arms, prayed over & sang songs over. To those mommas who loved their toddlers well, played with, laughed with, taught how to do, well…everything! To those Mommas who prayed for their teenagers, loved them well through those tough years, taught them responsibility, helped to cultivate their gifts & talents.
The ache & hurt we feel for the kids God blessed our homes with…those kids we modeled a life of following after God….even though imperfectly.
Those precious souls we taught in word & action of God’s truths – prayed for Day & night. Only to watch them walk away from that very truth and dive head long into a culture that is lying to them. Telling them anything goes!
Let’s make a pact, Ok?
To not give up!!!
God sees our aching hearts Mommas!
God hears our prayers in the night!
God loves us!
God loves them!
God is ABLE!
God is good!
When everything we see, hear and feel tells us they are long gone…
The Holy Spirit whispers to our breaking hearts “don’t quit, don’t give up! Stay in the fight. Their very souls depend on it!” Stay on your knees.
Jesus-loving Momma’s we’ve gotta stay at our post of prayer & intercession!
Don’t you dare give in to doubts, to the lies of the enemy, to the shouts of this world!
Don’t listen to the faithless whispers & voices that surround you!
Keep seeking, asking & knocking!
Don’t give in!
Don’t give up!
The battle for their hearts, minds & souls depends on it!
Prayer: Dear Daddy-God, help us to love well, live a life that points to You. Teach us to pray! Help us to not quit, not give up & not lose hope.
Mostly though…Father, help your “Jesus-loving Mommas” to Trust that your love is more than enough! That your arm is longer, your reach is farther! Help us to Trust Your plan to rescue & redeem our prodigals from the roads they are on.
We know You are able!
We know & believe in Your power!
Do it again Lord, do it again!
In the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
Oh, Renee. I so join you in this prayer!
