And it happened, as He spoke these things, that a certain woman from the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, “Blessed is the womb that bore You, and the breasts which nursed You!”
But He said, “More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”
Stepping into motherhood is like stepping to see your own self growing older. Learning in every step and stage, expanding your knowledge and understanding from the womb, slowly crowding to be around people and every new things around. And as I age, I have ventured with every new challenges that always pushes me to be good from being naive, but things always has to improve, leading me to desire achieving the standard of mankind, which never stops.
To be passionate is good, because stretching yourself to the fullness of your ability is a revelation of the beauty of what you are made of. Given there are 4 lists.
- Your full physical capability
- The length of your knowledge
- Faithful willingness
- The Spirit (the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:17)
Physical ability describes our health and our functionality. How far would we want to go beyond the limitations of our body settings.
The length of our knowledge measures our exposure based on what we’ve seen, what we’ve heard, what we’ve tasted, what we’ve touched, using all our senses, how we perceived them.
Faithful willingness is our ability to agree with ourselves to proceed far beyond fear/doubts/confusion.
And the only direction among these lists is the Spirit. People have been confused through time because of the introduction of ghosts, monsters, naming them bad spirits. But the only truth, scripture written is when Jesus resurrected and uttered to his disciples in John 14:17 that he will send us a helper, the Holy spirit that dwells in us.
We have only one spirit in us, and it’s Holy, otherwise, we rebuke it. Jesus was able to rebuke the evil ( So the demons begged Him, saying, “If You cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of swine.” Matthew 8:31)
The Holy Spirit is of God, and the Power there is with God and Jesus, is with the Holy Spirit. We are capable of rebuking the evil. And as Jesus feeds himself with prayers and worship. We should also intentionally feed our souls, Our mind, hearts, and will of faith, to equip us with strength, that by the word of God, reading the bible, talking to God through prayer, and worshiping him with praises, glorifying him in everything that we do. The Holy spirit will manifest control of everything we are made of.
As a mother, the only direction I encounter to see raising my son is through the wisdom of God. Because beyond the fear I have for myself, growing old, I only found hope in the Lord. The only genuine, reliable treasure I can pass to my heirs.
