If I Had the Words – featuring Rose Heights Church, in Honor of Mother’s Day

If I had the ability to speak words that would bring forth life, then I would choose to speak. But I don’t have the words.

If I knew what to say to a Mother who is overwhelmed by the pressures of life, then I would choose to speak. But I don’t have the words.

If I knew what to say to the Mother who is alone in her responsibility, then I would choose to speak. But I don’t have the words.

If I knew what to say to the Mother who struggles to provide for the basic needs of her children, then I would choose to speak. But I don’t have the words.

If I knew what to say to the Mother who made choices of regret, then I would choose to speak. But I don’t have the words.

If I knew what to say to those who can no longer feel the touch or hear the voice of a Mother, then I would choose to speak. But I don’t have the words.

If I knew what to say to the Mother who is committed to serve as a caregiver to the special needs of others, then I would choose to speak. But I don’t have the words.

If I knew what to say to those who have Mothers that can no longer communicate or recognize, then I would choose to speak. But I don’t have the words.

If I knew what to say to the Mother who is too sick to fulfill her desire to Mother, then I would choose to speak. But I don’t have the words.

If I knew what to say to the Mothers who have experienced the depths of despair through losing a child in death, then I would choose to speak. But I don’t have the words.

I don’t have the words.

But I do have THE WORD.

To Mothers who need strength, I speak THE WORD in Psalms 28:7:

“The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.”

To Mothers who need forgiveness, I speak THE WORD in Isaiah 1:18

“Come now, let’s reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.

 To Mothers who need provision, I speak THE WORD in Philippians 4:19

“But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.”

To the Mothers who need comfort, I speak THE WORDS of LIFE

I am the resurrection and Life. He who believes in me though he were dead, yet shall he live. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter that he may abide with you forever; I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. I will never leave you nor forsake you. My peace I give unto you, not as the world gives but as I give. Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you.  I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
