A MOTHER’S HEART – 2016

A MOTHER’S HEART …

While just a young child, my “children” were many
I’d line them all up and make sure that any
… of them who were mine didn’t repine
And think that my love was confined …
~ To just one.

 The more the merrier was always my way
And though they were many we’d always play
That new ones were coming and we had to see
That they were accepted and loved tenderly
~ Not left alone.

Then in my twenties it happened again
In six years my children were five – but when
Each one came along I’d love them and say
The next one that comes won’t be in your way
~ I love you.

Our love multiplies the more than we have
It never divides when we care to share
The great gift of love that comes from above
It’s more than we can – It’s Christ’s precious love
~ For all.

Don’t make the mistake like I somehow thought
That my imperfections would keep me apart
From receiving the fullness of God’s love and grace
And soon I found myself judged in that place
~ Not able to love.

Through life’s experiences I’ve come to know
That my imperfections that bother me so
Are covered by Christ and His perfect blood
And when I receive Him – and share His great love
~ They know.

And now in my “old age” I want you to know
How precious it is to live in a flow
Of receiving the gift of His Life and His Love
And live in communion with His precious dove
~ Holy Spirit.

Once again the pains of labor I feel
…  for more in my children – His glory revealed
The fullness of all that is Christ within you
Enlightening the world that His love is true.
~ Through you!

====================================

Galatians.4:19

(NLT) “Do you know how I feel right now, and will feel until Christ’s life becomes visible in your lives? Like a mother in the pain of childbirth.”

(Mirror) “My darling little children, my jealousy for you compares to a mother over her newly born! I gave birth to you once through my gospel; now I feel those same labor pains all over again. I travail for the full realization of Christ to be formed within in you!”

Colossians.1:27 – “God wanted everyone – to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory. It’s that simple. That is the substance of our Message.”
