Beauty Unfolding

“Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all. Give her of the fruit of her hands and let her works praise her in the gates.” Proverbs 31:29,31 (ESV)

It simply started as a tiny little shoot – actually an infant rose – spreading roots deep into the soil. Now this wasn’t just an ordinary flower beginning to flourish and grow. My mom started the process from her own rose bush and now several years later mine is blooming in abundance. Every time, I come down our sidewalk, I smell the deep aroma and see the beauty of all those buds opening. Sweet reminder of my Mom’s fragrant love for her children and grandchildren. She has the biggest heart ever. Grateful and blessed by the legacy of a godly mother.

Amazing how quickly time evolves, and we find ourselves mothers, grandmothers or spiritual mentors. Whether we have physical children or not, God created us to nurture the lives of others. I have three children: two in Heaven and one on earth. My dreams of a large family looks totally different than I ever imagined. Perhaps yours does too. However, some of the greatest blessings of my life have been the spiritual children God has brought into my path. Hugs, encouragement, prayers and a cherished season of celebrating their growth. Wouldn’t trade a moment with any of them.

Spiritual motherhood is an incredible blessing – a cherished trusting of ones who need guidance, grace and love. An entrusting of dear ones our Lord loves ever so much. An opportunity to sow deep roots of God’s truth and faithfulness encouraging an abundance of growth beyond our comprehension. A chance of a lifetime to pour into those the things God is teaching us. A sweet remembrance of where we have been and how God divinely orchestrated these moments in our life – a fragrant offering.

Who are you nurturing in this season of your life? Maybe little ones gather at your feet and cling tight everywhere you go. Drink deep of those moments. Perhaps your arms are empty longing for just one to hold. Lean into our Savior and realize the beauty of His filling. Regardless of where you are dear friend never forget God desires to use your life in a powerful way to birth His purposes in those who enter our lives.

“Father, You are the Giver of life, the Ordainer of our days and the One who knows exactly what we need. Praising You for transforming empty to full. Praising You for transform lives right before our eyes.”

For His Glory
