Mothers day is an incredible day for so many people… I personally am very excited about today because of the mom that I get to see in action every single day! The truth is, is that there are many who will never be married, never have kids, and will always struggle on this day.
I am saddened for those people and I know quite a few… I ran across this, and I hope if you know someone or maybe you fall into that spectrum this will help.
Here is a section from a Mother’s Day sermon by John Piper where he addressed some various issues of pain that can be associated with this day:
There are millions of single women, and many will stay single.
There is a grace from God for that—a very special grace and for some even a calling.
There are women who are single mothers and the marriage element in the calling I just described is painfully missing.
Jesus Christ has a grace for that.
There are women who are married and cannot, or, with their husbands, choose not, to have children.
Jesus has a grace for that.
