The Weight of the Wait

Happy Mother’s Day, my sisters!

If you haven’t read last week’s blog post, I hope you will go back and do so. I believe today is a day for celebrating the ways we all use our mother-hearts to love on the people in our lives. If that includes you having kids, well done, mama! If that includes you mentoring teenagers, well done, friend! If that includes you being the best auntie ever, well done, sister! Today, I celebrate the amazing ways you use that gracious gift we have received from God: the heart of a mother.

But I also know that a reframe doesn’t always take away the sting of a difficult day. And today, I want to honor that, as well. If Mother’s Day is a hard day for you, I hope you feel celebrated by those around you who see the ways you use the mother-heart that is already yours. However, your sisters will never hold your heart perfectly; only the Lord can do that.

Maybe you’re waiting for a baby, from your tummy or from an adoption agency or from the foster-care system…

Maybe you’re waiting for reconciliation with your child or with your mom…

Maybe you’re waiting for heaven to see your mama or your baby again…

And there’s nothing like Mother’s Day to highlight the weight of this wait.

Friend, today I want to share with you a poem I wrote about this weight. I pray it blesses you. It won’t lift the weight; only Jesus can do that. But I hope it brings you to Him today, the only One who can care for your heart perfectly on a hard day like today.

You can listen to it on today’s special Podcast episode on Spotify or Apple Podcasts.

After the poem I share a bit about my heart behind writing the poem and a few of the Scriptures I reference, for your own study.

If you’d like to download a copy of the poem, I’ve made a little printable that you can download, screenshot or print, and tuck in your Bible or tape to your mirror. Just click the button to download that for free right now!

I pray blessings over you today, my sisters. I pray you draw close to the Healer and allow the weight of your heartache to fall on Him. I pray He holds you close, today and always.

I know He will.

Love ya, friend.
