Sunday Words of Encouragement May 10, 2015 Mother's Day

This is very late because we met friends for lunch after church and then took a nap.
We had a great video in Sunday School which I will share another day.

Pastor’s Sermon today was (for mother’s of course), entitled: A Mother’s Influence.
Influence: is the process or power of impacting actions of others.
A well known example of motherly influence in the Bible is in the life of Timothy. The Godly faith of his grandmother was passed through his mother to Timothy. 2 Timothy 1:1-5.
Here are some areas of influence that a mother has:
Protection - Mothers are known to be fiercely protective of their children. They need to watch over them with clarity and firmness, protecting the soul as well as the body. Matthew 23:27, Matthew 10:28. Mothers need to set parameters because children need boundaries , just as adults need too. Parents also need to equip their children with an internal GPS (global parenting system) for their lives. Proverbs 22:6
Prayer: There is great power in the prayers of mothers. We always need to remember that our struggle is not against flesh and blood or this world - it is a spiritual struggle. Ephesians 6:12.
Possibility: We train our children and Mother’s can encourage their children to build and tale a chance to dream. Philippians 4:13.

Thank You Mom Poem
Verses for Today:
1 Peter 3:3-4  NIV
3 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. 4 Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

I give thanks to God for my lovely mother and thanks too for my daughter and daughter-in law who are beautiful mothers.
