This is a rerun from last year.
Today is Mother's Day. Mothers everywhere are being loved and honored as they should be, but I want to talk about a different group today.
I want to talk about those that have empty arms. The women who would love to be called "Mama" but will never hear it.
I wish I could say something that might offer you comfort. I wish God would reveal why some have children that they don't want, why many abort their littlest blessings and why so many arms ache to have one and do not.
I do not understand. I cannot give answers.
But what I can offer you is love. It seems so little. It seems just a pittance.
However, in 1 Corinthians 13:13 says this, But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Why is love the greatest of these? Because in your situation I can't give you faith (but I can encourage you to hold on) and I can't offer you any hope, but I can love you. I can claim (or adopt) you. I can feel with you. I can pray for and with you. I do love you. I do love you! I love you!
I know this day is hard for you. I know you are sad and empty and have so much unanswered.
But God is God. He has the answers. He is bigger than anything we think or know. Trust Him for your strength and comfort. And for just a moment let me be His instrument to let you know, you are not forgotten. You are not overlooked. You are not less of a woman. You are a child of the Most High God. And I love you.
