LISTEN NOW: To The One Who Is Dreading Mother’s Day

I’m so keenly aware that not everyone looks forward to Mother’s Day. To those of you avoiding church this Sunday because you just can’t sit through another mother recognition service, remember that we love and serve a God who sees, hears, knows, and weeps.

To the one with the empty womb…
To the one who heard the words “no heartbeat…”
To the one who delivered too soon…
To the one who’s baby never left the NICU…
And to the one who has wept by the graveside…
He sees. He hears. And He weeps.
To the one who’s mom wasn’t present…
To the one who’s mom wasn’t kind…
To the one who knows parental rejection…
He sees. He hears. He provides.
To the one who watches disease ravage her body…
Or dementia ravages her mind…
To the one who reaches for the phone…only to remember she’s gone…
He sees. He hears. He comforts.
He is a husband to the husbandless…a father to the fatherless…and a mother to the motherless.
He sees. He hears. And He draws you to Himself with an everlasting, never-ending, all-consuming love.
