Happy Mothers’ Day ! We had a fun service this morning at Living Waters Full Gospel Church Of Homestead (Florida). Our Lead Pastor Bob brought the Good News from both the Old Testament and New Testament.
Before and after the sermon we celebrated Mothers’ Day with Scripture. As part of Praise & Worship I proclaimed this from the Psalmist:
You made all the delicate inner parts of my body, and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank You for making me so wonderfully complex ! Your workmanship is marvelous – how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. (Psalm 139:13-16 NLT)
After the sermon I shared this beautiful gem from the very end of Proverbs:
She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness. Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all !” Charm is deceptive and beauty does not last, but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise. (Proverbs 31:25-31 NLT)
