"Snippets" from What The Bible is all about for Moms by Kathy Pride

Old Testament
Book of Exodus: He will equip those He calls to serve, despite human thoughts to the contrary.
International adoption isn’t anything new. It goes all the way back to the time of Moses. It is a timeless truth and provides hope to birth moms, waiting moms and children.

Do you think there is any difference in the degree that an adoptive mom or biological mom loves her children?
(I can answer the last one here – I know there is no difference, you see I was adopted and my mother adored me!)

Book of Leviticus: The good news (literally the translation of “gospel”) is that the guilt offering came as part of the package deal when we accept Jesus. No more wallowing in guilt.

New Testament
Gospel of Luke: The importance and expression of prayer is also emphasized. In fact, prayer is addressed more in the Gospel of Luke than in the other three Gospel accounts….Dr. Mears notes that “Prayer is the expression of human dependence on God” and that “there is not enough private prayer”.
Momento: It’s not unusual for moms to get stuck in fear mode, factoring in only their own resources rather than divine intervention to solve problems.

Gospel of John: a story about Jesus being really angry, a somewhat different perspective than many of us are accustomed to (John 2:12-16)
Scripture: “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” (John 14:26).
This chapter includes a fabulous story about The Prayer of Jabez (a must read).

More to come soon….oh, so much more fabulous information!
