Gospel Reading today: Luke 6:12-16
Gospel Reading from Tuesday: Luke 13:18-21

"The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed that a person took and planted in the garden. The plant grows and becomes a tree and the birds make their nests in its branches. Luke 13:19

When I read this scripture yesterday with motherhood in mind, a whole new meaning took place in my heart and it was such an amazing thought that kept reoccurring throughout my day yesterday. We are told in scripture that we can experience the Kingdom of God here on earth and I realized yesterday after I read the parable of the mustard seed that a Mother's Love IS the kingdom of God of at hand. For God is love and gives us mothers this perfect love to perform on earth by giving birth to new life and loving these little creatures like we have never loved before. A mother and father's love for their children is like no other love on earth. THIS is the kingdom of God at hand! We are to spread this love to our children and in turn they will spread the love to others in their life and then onto their family. Just like the seed that grows into a tree and the birds make their nests, so does a mothers love grow into a beautiful tree and from there, branches are formed and the tree continues to grow. How blessed we are as women that God chose US to be a pillar that is holding up the Kingdom of God. He chose us women to be the forefront of the battle of good verses evil. What we do as mothers is absolute goodness, which is only from God. Our day to day tasks that we perform in love is performing for the Kingdom. We humble our selves and say yes to life, we put ourselves aside as we grow life inside of us, we put all of our fears aside as we give birth to new life and become the care-taker of the soul that has been given to us. As mothers, we lay down our lives the rest of our life to care and nurture these souls. THIS is the greatest form of love and sacrifice and THIS is the Kingdom of God at hand!

Wow, powerful words from the Holy Spirit that wanted me to pass this on to all of you. The work you do is holy and good. The work you do is for our Lord Jesus and you will be rewarded abundantly in Heaven.

Have a blessed Wednesday and don't forget to water your seed with prayer and thanksgiving to our Lord Jesus!
