Mother, I speak life over you now.

“Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others” Colossians 3:13, NLT.

One of the worst things a woman can experience is guilt from knowing she wasn’t the kind of mother she needed to be for her children. She can think to herself, “If only I would had been a better mother, my children would not be the way they are today.” I’ve seen guilt-ridden mothers refuse to live their lives because of their past failures. As if the anger and resentment of their children isn’t enough, these women punish themselves by refusing to be happy, healthy and enjoy their lives.

The truth is, it is time for mothers to forgive themselves and go on to enjoy the rest of their days on this earth. It is also time for grown children to forgive their parents for what they did or didn’t do, and accept responsibility for their own life choices.

Mother, I speak life over you now. You will not spend the rest of your days punishing yourself for something you can’t do anything about. The Lord has forgiven you and now you will forgive you. He is helping you move forward and be happy, healthy and enjoy the life He’s given you. The Lord is helping your adult children to forgive you and accept responsibility for the life choices they’ve made. He is at work and everything will be ok. In Jesus’ name.

  4. Thank you GOD for speaking through the writer of this devotional for years and years I have punished myself for the mother I wasn’t for my children, I abused them emotionally and mentally because I thought what I was or wasn’t doing was more important then being a mother, so that hindered me from moving forward my children are now adults and they have forgiven me for the past but I did find myself feeling guilty and trying to make up for lost time I know we can’t make up for what happen but GOD has showed me that through his word HE already knew where I was going and where I’m at now THANK you for speaking to me right where I’m at I believe your word

  8. This used to be me! For years I bore the resentment from my youngest son over the things that he alleged my own Mother did to him and for the kind of Mother I was. I was a very young Mother who made lots of mistakes and practically lived in sin. I didn’t know anything about Christ as my Savior. But about ten years ago I started down a new and different path. Jesus came into my life and I began to learn more and more about Him and forgiveness. My entire life changed! I am truly a new creature in Christ and my son has forgiven me through the power of diligent prayer and trust in God. My oldest son with whom I’ve always had a great relationship has mellowed even more and God has turned so many things around for all of us. AMEN!!

  9. Lord help my daughter to forgive me and heal her broken heart💔 and spirit in Jesus name I pray ! Amen 🙇🏿‍♀🙏🏿

  10. Yes, I agree. As a teenage mother with a mother who died when my oldest son was one, my son had to grow up with me not knowing who or who’s I am. I tried to figure it all out without knowing Christ and no one to mentor or help me in anyway. After many trials, mistakes, circumstances, situations and three sons later I met the Heavenly Father, Christ and the Holy Spirit to help me through. Although my sons are good guys, I see the effects of me not knowing who I am in some of the behaviors, questions and choices they make/made. I often feel guilty about not pouring into them at a young age, although, I am now.

    Sis. Kesha, thank you so much for this post. Blessings, Shalom and Agape.
