A Mother’s Heart Believes!
When no one else thinks you can do it, a Mother’s Heart believes that you can!
I remember being scared and afraid to try out for cheerleading in Jr. High School. My mom had been a cheerleader, and it seemed like the “normal” course for me to take. I had previously had no formal dance experience of any kind, but I was after all an athlete. I had played sports with my dad since I could walk, talk or throw a ball. None of this proved to help me in any way.
I failed at my first attempt in 7th grade, and went on to repeat the failure in 8th grade, 9th grade and 10th grade. What kept me trying? What put my disappointed and broken heart back together again? What gave me the confidence to feel that I could make it, even after four failed attempts?
The belief my mother had in me.
She encouraged me, supported me and truly believed I was good enough to make it! She assured me that it was the lack of wisdom of the judges, and not my lack of talent.
So, I kept trying, and in my 11th year of High School I made the dance/drill team. I was a proud “Raiderette” for both my Junior and Senior year.
The belief my mother had in me, made me believe that I could do it!
Elizabeth believed that God could give her a son, even in her old age and inability to conceive earlier in her life. Even though her husband, Zechariah took some greater convincing and laughed at the thought, Elizabeth believed!
God allowed Elizabeth to conceive and she became pregnant with John the Baptist.
“Soon afterward his wife, Elizabeth, became pregnant and went into seclusion for five months.”
Elizabeth shows even greater belief when her cousin Mary, visits her and she sees that she is also pregnant.
“Elizabeth gave a glad cry and exclaimed to Mary, “God has blessed you above all women, and your child is blessed.” Luke 1:42
Elizabeth had the heart of a Mother, and spoke belief into the heart of another Mother.
“When I heard your greeting, the baby in my womb jumped for joy. You are blessed because you believed the Lord would do what He said.” Luke 1:44-45
A Mother’s heart BELIEVES and pours that belief into the heart of others.
My mom poured her belief into my heart and I was able to BELIEVE!
Elizabeth poured her belief into Mary’s heart and she BELIEVED!
If you are a Mom, who are you pouring your heart of belief into? Maybe you have stopped “BELIEVING” yourself, and you need to have your heart of believe encouraged by the heart of God?
“There is no greater love, than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13
God believes in you and loves you SO much that He layed down His life for you! Now, that’s believing in you to the greatest degree!
Are you sharing that same belief with someone you love?
To believe in someone is to have confidence in the truth that they are as important to God as you are. That God also layed down His life for them. Believing and knowing that Truth, gives us the ability to believe in them regardless of the surrounding circumstances.
No amount of failures, no age limits, and no obstacles, can stand in the way of true belief.
A Mother’s Heart Believes that God can and will accomplish His purpose in her loved ones.
As we celebrate Mother’s Day this coming weekend, let’s be sure to thank all those special Moms who have believed in us!
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY MOM’S!
