Mothers’ Day: What Kind of Love?

gladmomma —  May 11, 2012

By Lynne Davis

One look was all it took. Remember? You saw your baby’s face, and your heart swelled to the bursting point.  A cascade of fierce love and thrilling joy poured out to your precious little one.

God wants you to know that He is looking at you with the same amazing explosion of love that you felt when you first became a mom. You make His heart sing with joy.

He who is love has unleashed His love—His very essence—toward you.

Even if you’ve failed Him, God’s love for you is sure and unfailing. He bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.

So as you celebrate Mothers’ Day, take a moment to look to the Lord and notice His love for you.  What kind of love is it?   It’s an extravagant, parental love like the love you discovered in your heart for your child.

Believe that His love is for you, and trust that it will never fail.

    Yes God's love for us is truly amazing! When I was pregnant with my son, and I was constantly praying that he would be normal, that my pregnancy would have no complications, God assured me by telling me, "When you hold your child in your arms, you will see how much I love you." So true!

    Such a sweet photo of a beautiful baby. I do remember those times. Proud and glad they were finally here. As time went by - we realized we could not do it it alone and needed help from the Lord! He was gracious

      Robert,
      Yes, what would we do without His help? He is so good. Thanks for your comment

    So true! I just wrote a very similar post. I remember the first time God whispered in my spirit that He loves me MORE than I love my 2 boys. It was so overwhelming that all I could do was cry!
