Humanity Groans for a Mother

Mothers -- of today or tomorrow -- if you have at times felt as if child rearing was some eddy aside the main stream of what is important in life, be encouraged by these powerful words.

Fathers -- of today or tomorrow -- be awed. Let your hearts take in the gravity of it.

My willingness to carry life is the revenge, the antidote, the great rebuttal of every murder, every abortion, and every genocide. 

I sustain humanity. Deep inside of me, life grows. I am death's opposition. 

I have pushed back the hand of darkness today. I have caused there to be a weakening tremor among the ranks of those set on earth's destruction. Today a vibration that calls angels to attention echoed throughout time. 

Our laughter threatened hell today. I dined with the greats of God's army. I made their meals, and tied their shoes. Today, I walked with greatness, and when they were tired I carried them. I have poured myself out for the cause today. 

It is finally quiet, but life stirs inside of me. Gaining strength, the pulse of life sends a constant reminder to both good and evil that I have yielded myself to Heaven and now carry its dream. No angel has ever had such a privilege, nor any man. I am humbled by the honor. I am great with destiny. I birth the freedom fighters. 

In the great war, I am a leader of underground resistance. I smile at the disguise of my troops, surrounded by a host of warriors, destiny swirling, invisible yet tangible, and the anointing to alter history. Our footsteps marking land for conquest, we move undetected through the common places. 

Today I was the barrier between evil and innocence. I was the gate keeper, watching over the hope of mankind, and no intruder trespassed. There is not an hour of day or night when I turn from my post. 

The fierceness of my love is unmatched on earth. And because I smiled instead of frowned the world will know the power of grace. Hope has feet, and it will run to the corners of earth, because I stood up against destruction. 

I am a woman. I am a mother. I am the keeper and sustainer of life here on earth. Heaven stands in honor of my mission. No one else can carry my call. 

I am the daughter of Eve. Eve has been redeemed. I am the opposition of death. 

I am a woman.
