The Words of a Mother

If you knew that your words as a mother would shape and mold someone into who they would become, would you be more careful to choose what you say? Or would you change the way you said it, knowing that every word was heard by someone you cared for…that they would listen to those words and then learn how to act and respond just by following after you?

Ever since I was little, my mom (especially) has always spoken words of life into me. I feel as though my mom was the head cheerleader of who I was, and she always cheered me on, wanting to see me succeed. No matter the mistakes I made, I knew she would always love me and care for me. How powerful is the love of a mother! It touches a child’s heart in ways that words can’t express.

We can learn so much from our mothers and can’t forget the impact that they make in our lives. I am a prime example of how the words of a mother empowered her daughter to be the woman God has called her to be. As I have grown older, I have realized that I need my mother more than I did before. She has already been where I am going and has already done the things I am starting. So, I need her to continue to speak words of life into me just as she did when I was a child.

Mamas, we need you!
Mamas, we need you more than we ever have before.
We are starting a new season of our life and can’t do it without your love and guidance.
We need the encouraging words that you speak to remind us that we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength.
We need your love to remind us that no matter what happens or what situation comes that there are always arms open wide for us to run to.
We need your laughter because only you can make the silly jokes that make us laugh and smile in a way no one else can.
We need your correction; we are going to try new things, say the wrong words, or mess up in some way or another, but we need the voice of wisdom and guidance to help us along the way.
We need your support, for when we know that you are behind us, we feel as though we can mount up like an eagle and soar.
We need your hand to help us up when we have fallen and to show us who our source is and where our help comes from.
We need your mercy; sometimes we will push you away and act as though we may know it all, but we don’t, and we still need you to be there to help us through.
We need you to believe in us because we have dreams and hopes for the future, and we need you to pray and believe with us that they will come to pass.
We need you to teach us how to be a godly wife, mother, daughter, and friend.
We need you to teach us how to have faith and believe that all things work together for good. Just remember that every prayer you prayed has helped make us into who we are today.
Every tear you cried with us meant the world to us.
Every time you put us before yourself, we saw, and we can’t thank you enough.
Every word of encouragement you spoke was planted deep inside our soul.
So keep being who you are because no matter how old we get, we will always need a role model.
We will always need you.
