This has been in my heart for a few weeks. This call is for many of you reading my blog today. This is a personal but also communal call. One we share, yet one that some of you will champion.
Lately, I’ve been hearing Abba talk to me about spiritual mothering. Honestly, I think he is issueing a call to many of us in this season to become spiritual mothers. Some of us, like Sarah, are past “childbearing years” and yet, he is calling us to be mothers again (or perhaps, for the first time!). He is asking us to nurture a new generation of young women, to model intimacy with Jesus and live out the supernatural in a way that inspires and instructs others. And this call is not one to take lightly. In fact, it comes with all the pain and burden of having a mother’s heart.
