For thus says the Lord: Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream; then you will be nursed, you will be carried on her hip and trotted [lovingly bounced up and down] on her [God's maternal] knees”. Isaiah 66:12 (AMPC)
A Mother’s love is such a comfort, she speaks tenderly to us, her words awaken us to all we are, and all we are meant to be. In the absence of those life-giving impartations, lies can get in, carelessly or intentionally deposited by others, and take root. Those same roots go deep, choking out the very life within.
If your heart has never known the nurturing love of a Mother; if there have been ways and times that you have been let down, then dear heart, allow the Lord today, to pick you up. He will nurse you, comfort and care for you in His arms of sustaining love, in a way that heals the brokenness within.
Peace will come, overflowing in abundance. He will carry you, and keep you close, speak tenderly to you with His absolute truth. New foundations will be laid, old lies removed, and you will be made brand new—restored to His original design and the fullness of all that is in His heart for you.
This is the way it was meant to be beloved, from the very beginning of time. Loving you back to life. That’s what God’s Mothering heart and Maternal love will do.
Lord, I come to You today, bringing all the tender places, the weary and worn pieces, and release them into Your strong hands.
You help me like a Father; Your nurturing Mother’s heart so tender and pure. Pour even more of Your love upon me today, Gracious God. Restore me back to You and to who You made me to be.
You are my life Lord. My Saviour and my Safe Place. Hold me close, dearest Father, in Your arms of restoring love. There is no place in all the world I would rather be!
Thank You for Your tenderness and Your constant loving care.
In Jesus Precious and Holy Name, I pray.
