I worshipped with my darling dad at our Family church this special Sunday. It’s Mothering Sunday you see, and my darling mom is away. Still, we kept the family camaraderie high and set off for a day worthy of worship for all Moms and women all around the world.
What I Wore
My outfit for today was quite apt for Mother’s day. I wore a nice twist to the traditional Wrapper and blouse designed by The Ladymaker. It is such a great colour and fit and was expertly matched with Vlisco fabric by the really talented designer of the Lady Maker brand, Ify Azubike.
See photos below and keep scrolling for the rest of the sermon.
A lovely Lady took today’s sermon. “She started off by congratulating all Mother’s on today’s celebrations and wishing for peace to women burdened with different issues with a special emphasis on:
1.Women with fertility issues, may your womb be visited today in Jesus name
2. For the sick and weary, may the Lord make everything right!
As a woman/ mother in your home, Christ wants a lot from you. Families are very critical to God. They are the building block of our society and the world at large. The entire world population is made up of different pockets of families, Imagine if all the moms raised grounded, Godly children. How much of a better place will the world be?
What Christ wants from women. Christ requires the women to ensure that their families are:
- Standing upright in him(Christ)
- Firm in the word
The role of Father’s was also briefly discussed with regards the family unit. The father is the priest of the home; the spiritual leader. Christ should live in him, as you guide your family and wife lovingly.
Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
Ephesians 5: 28-29:28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church—
The mother’s primary role is to pray; for your family, for your husband and for your children. To provide a conducive environment and raise healthy individuals: spiritually, physically and mentally. To help your husband flourish by submitting to him and not criticising him repeatedly. She also mentioned the need to stay away from fighting un-productive fights to prove your independence. Peace should reign always.
Every woman must be a woman of faith.A Godly mother is disciplined. She is also responsible for bringing up her daughters to be future great mothers. Do not plant the seeds of hatred in their hearts for men. Likewise for your sons, bring them up in the ways of the Lord, so they can fulfil the Lord’s mandate.
In a nutshell, the role of a mother is very important in our lives and the world. A lot of love and appreciation goes out to all moms. You are such amazing beings, putting your family above and beyond yourselves and dying to self, to ensure they are provided for. Today most especially, we want all mothers to know that you are dearly loved!!
To all the aspiring moms, including myself; While considering a life partner, remember to double check the Lord’s mandate of what is expected of your potential spouse. Make sure your values are aligned. I was reminded of the importance of this quite throughly today in church.
” The best legacy to leave our children is to ensure they are brought up as true Christians”.
Have a blessed and joyful day Moms!!
