The Season of Supermoms

If ever there was a season that required being a supermom, it would be the Christmas season. There are Christmas cookies to be baked, gingerbread houses to be decorated, stockings to be stuffed, presents to be wrapped, and a whole house to be decorated – inside and out! Our usual to-do lists triple in size and the thought of having a moment to ourselves becomes more and more laughable as our laundry piles gets higher and our kitchens become messier. There’s so much to do, and December only has so many days!

Before we get carried away with what the world’s “supermom” looks like, let’s take a look at the Bible’s version of a “supermom.” Her name is Mary, and God chose her to be the earthly mother of His only Son. Read Luke 2:26-35, and let Mary’s example shape and encourage us as moms.

Luke 2:26-35

“In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee, to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David. Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!”Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. “Don’t be afraid, Mary,” the angel told her, “for you have found favor with God! You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David. And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never end!” Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.”The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God.”

Mary was delivered the most inconceivable news she could ever imagine. She felt disturbed and confused (vs. 29). She felt doubtful (vs. 34). But she had a choice. She could choose to strive and struggle, plan and prepare, or she could choose to rest and believe in God’s promises. Her choice was clear: “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” Luke 2:38

This Christmas season, let Mary’s example remind us that the world’s standard of a supermom isn’t God’s standard of a supermom. Let us simply choose to believe what God says about us, trust that God will do what He says, and know God, deeply. And when the kitchen won’t clean itself and the Christmas tree topples over, remember that God chose you for motherhood, and he will give you everything you need for accomplishing His will (Hebrews 13:21).
