What kind of mother?

It’s hasn’t been easy being a mother nowadays.

The things we never imagined our children having access to one day, now practically chases after them, as if the world has invaded our home, and taken us away from it…

Renato and I counsel many parents every Sunday and, in every appointment, we feel their pain. Last Sunday, an elderly mother, in tears, came to tell us how much her children didn’t want to come with her to the seminar, not even as a Mother’s Day request, and to make things worse, they started cursing before she left the house. A mother who raised them by herself, without anyone’s help… and now in return she is despised, disrespected without any consideration.

In my mind, the thought always comes: no mother deserves this! No matter how many mistakes she made in life, or how hard it was to raise her children, a mother will always be a mother…

But what can we do? We can’t open her children’s heads and try and make them understand logic, right? What we do, is what we can do… and this is the tip I gave mothers this last Sunday: be the kind of mother your child needs.

  • Forget about the kind of mother you always dreamed of being, or the kind of mother you learned to be with yours… to be your child’s mother, you need to know what type of mother he/she needs at this moment in their life.
  • Your daughter arrives drunk at home, late at night – she doesn’t need a lecture, she needs care. Give her a coffee, take her to the bathroom, help her get in bed.
  • When your son was angry, he cursed at you – he doesn’t need you to curse back at him, you need to be above his anger. Forgive him and understand that your son is not saying the truth, what’s speaking is the anger he feels.
  • Your daughter gives more attention to her friends than yourself – she doesn’t need you to be jealous or for you to make her feel bad about it. Be a true friend, even in her hardest moments.
  • Your son married a woman who despises you as a mother-in-law – he doesn’t need you to do the same thing with his wife. Be patient and do for her what she doesn’t do for you, treat her like a daughter.
  • Your daughter blames you for her life – she doesn’t need you to turn the blame back on her. Ask forgiveness for the mistakes you made and show her what you’ve changed to no longer go wrong again.

You will always be a mother, however, even if your child has forgotten about you, you don’t have to forget about them. Contact them through prayer. Pray for them every day, place them in God’s hands, and never give up! God will do justice and you will be an accomplished mother!

Do you remember Rebecca? Rebecca had two sons, Esau and Jacob. When they grew up, Esau married women that would take away her peace, and to make matters worse, Jacob, the son that respected her, had to flee home because he was threatened to be killed by his brother.

I can imagine how hard Rebecca’s last days were… she was widowed, having to deal with her son’s daughters-in-law and a son filled with bitterness after she encouraged Jacob’s escape.

Rebecca didn’t see her answered prayers, but not only were they answered but were written in the Word of God! Jacob was very blessed and became Israel, and Esau made amends with his brother many years later.

No prayer is in vain! Fight in prayer for your children and join us Sundays at 6pm, in the Temple of Solomon.

In faith.

    May God bless all the mamas and give them more strength because I believe that it is not easy for to pass through what their children cause them to.

    This is very true. If the mothers could follow this tips they will see the changes in their children, because sometimes the reaction of the mother toward children in some cases is also contribute to the negative behavior of children toward the mother. It is not easy, but with God it is possible.

    Un enfant doit toujours obéir à sa mère quelque soit ce qu’elle est. Une mère ne doit jamais regeter son enfant quelques
    que soit sa désobéissance mais plus tôt priée pour lui.
