Afflictions & God's Comfort
Today is Mother’s Day. I have shared with you in years past the challenge for me in bringing a Mother’s Day message. I am not nor will I ever be a mother. So I do not know what you go through as mothers. But one thing I have observed about mothers. They live an on-call life. When their kids cry out, especially when they’re little, they often call for their mama. Moms are called on to solve everything from scraped elbows to resolving disputes about sharing. But things can get much more serious than that. An infant can get a high fever that threatens its life. A child can have a seizure that terrifies the parents. A new Mom can experience postpartum depression. A Mom can get run down trying to care for sick kids and herself through a flu season. Single moms face the additional pressure of providing for their kids. Sometimes, the pressures of being a Mom can become so great that they may wonder if they will make it.
