Mother’s day is just around the corner and I wanted to preview this Sunday’s message outline.
OUR GOD CARES FOR US AS A MOTHER
“When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son…It was I who taught [them] to walk, I took them up in my arms…I led them with cords of human kindness, I was to them like those who lift infants to their cheeks. I bent down to them and fed them.” Hosea 11.3-4
The Tender Care of Mom
Like a mother, I HURT for you.
“For a long time I have kept silent, I have been quiet and held myself back. But now, like a woman in childbirth, I cry out, I gasp and pant… I will not forsake them.” Isaiah 42.14-16
Like a mother, I’ll never FORGET you.
“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” Isaiah 49.15
Like a mother, I’ll always COMFORT you.
“As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you” Isaiah 66.13
The Watchful, PROTECTION AND PUSH of Mom
“As an eagle stirs up her nest, flutters over her young, spreads abroad her wings, takes them, bears them on her wings: So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.” Deuteronomy 32.11-12
WHEN WE HAVE BAGGAGE ABOUT MOTHERING
“For if my father and mother should abandon me, you would welcome and comfort me. ” Psalm 27.10 (TLB)
“because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5 (niv)
Also, here is a powerful clip from Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant talks about falling in love with the game of basketball, how it changed his life and the surreal feeling of being the NBA’s MVP.
A powerful mother’s day message.
Hope you enjoy.
Happy Mother’s day friends.
