THE SHINING MOTHER
Dear mother, you are blooming like a beautiful flower
As you embrace your motherhood and rely on God’s power,
You are walking in God’s perfect will and plans,
He has chosen you to tenderly care for His lambs.
You are obediently fulfilling God’s great vision
To bring forth the godly seed – it is God’s commission.
He wants this world to be filled with His glory and light,
A holy seed who will be the answer to this world’s plight.
May you raise sons and daughters who will be mighty for God
Who will turn many to Jesus while on this sod.
‘Arrows’ who are polished and ready for the bow
To be sent forth, in God’s time, to attack the foe.
May you experience God’s strength and His help each day,
May you live in divine health as you eat the healthy way,
May you be filled with great joy, which is your strength
And know His mighty anointing for each day’s length.
Oh I know that you often feel tired and worn
But God’s promises are true, He has sworn
He will always be faithful; He will not let you down,
You can trust Him completely; He won’t let you drown.
Don’t get down-hearted; throw self-pity out the door!
As you trust and obey, He’ll give grace more and more!
Keep pressing on, keep your eyes on the Lord,
Look beyond the day’s frustrations to the eternal reward!
The world is waiting to observe your radiant face,
To behold God’s glory upon you, and His grace,
There is no greater testimony for this world to see
Than a joyful mother with children on her knee.
Love from NANCY CAMPBELL
