Have you ever considered what it was like to be the mother of Jesus? Imagine, being told you’re going to carry God’s son!? Had to raise Gods son!?
Let’s think about Mary’s pregnancy… Was is a miraculous pregnancy?
Did he ever give Mary heartburn? Morning sickness? Did she have Braxton Hicks? Did Mary have mood swings and food cravings?
I can’t help to think what if Mary struggled to carry like so many of us woman experience in pregnancy too.
Ecclesiastes 11:5-6 As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the maker of all things. Sow your seed in the morning, and at the evening let not your hands be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well.
I had the thought the other day, if my season of being a stay-at-home mom mattered. Does it matter? Am I doing anything significant in this season?
