SLEEPING MOTHER ARISE
Over the weekend I went to a program organized by Ronke Giwa Onafowa titled Whose That Girl. One of the panelist made a statement that got me thinking she said, “Many mothers are sleeping.” As I think about that statement, the thought of sleeping on duty comes to mind. Which I will define for this write up as a mother not being up to her responsibilities of being a mother.
What cases a mother to sleep on duty?
What happens when a mother goes to or falls asleep on duty? Let us look in the Bible to find out more:
I want to state the words of Jesus for His sleeping disciples to all mothers “Are you still sleeping and resting “Enough! (Mark 14:41). Enough woman! Enough Mummy! Get up and train your children. Have time for them. Become close to them. Be their role model, their prayer warrior. Guide them in the way that is right. Be the one they turn to when in trouble. “Are you still sleeping? Enough!” bring them to Jesus, show them how to love the Lord by loving the Lord yourself.
Are you realizing a little bit late? Have they gone astray or become wayward? Or are you finding it hard to wake up and put them on the right part or teach them the way of the Lord. Let me tell you there is hope for change. There is hope, sleeping mother arise. Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to him for the lives of your children … Hold the hands of Jesus who is saying to you, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 NIV). With Jesus you shall wake up and be triumphant.
