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 right 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 yourself. The Lord is helping you move forward and be happy, healthy and enjoy the life He’s given you. He 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 okay. In Jesus’ name.

  2. Hallelujah 🙌🙌🙌 I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life with my children. But I’ve also made a lot of other mistakes too. I’ve not been a good wife, friend sister and so on but I can’t stay there I can grow from those mistakes and keep on going. Jesus I put my life in your hands I give you the ashes of my broken life and pray you will use them to bring glory to your name. Forgive for when I get angry help me be softer with my love ones. I love you Jesus with all my heart ❤️

  3. 🌾.Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you so much for forgiving me and giving me so many chances in my life as a mother who also has forgiven herself as well.

  4. One cannot “parent” and not have made mistakes. Thank you, Pastor Trippett, for helping us ALL look forward – to our future – and not behind – to our past! Let’s pray for ALL moms and DADS who have estranged relationships with their children… that they be reconciled in love.

  5. God truly speaks through you. You have no idea the argument I just had with my daughter yesterday. She told me all the ugly things that I had done as a parent while she was going up. Believe me they aren’t that bad but obviously expressing feelings was not my strong point. These millennials have had a pretty great life. Not knowing how lucky they are. But needless to say I have been beating my self up about that feeling terribly guilty. So thank you for your devotion today. This was speaking directly to my heart. God is good. God Bless you and your ministry.

  6. This devotion blessed me so much. This morning I was experiencing the guilt of my past mistakes in parenting. I thank God for you and for the sister who shared this ministry with me this past Saturday 10/2/21. God knew I was going to need this word today. God bless you woman of God.

  7. Good Morning Our Father!! Thank You for the gift of Your Holy Spirit🙌🙌🙌
    I Receive Your Message Through Sister Kesha and I Will Walk in Forgiveness Giving Me Freedom By You Jesus Christ.

  8. Thank you so much for this hope. My grown children haven’t spoken to me in over 2 years. My drug addiction ruined alot of our relationship and it’s been a battle for years. I’m 28 months clean and sober and work in ministry. Adult and Teen Challenge San Antonio TX. I hang to the hope of restoration in the Lord’s timing. Being patient can be difficult. I know I’m forgiven by my Father and I don’t walk around with guilt anymore. Amen

  9. Last Saturday, I got a message from my husband’s side chic purporting to be him. Message saying “Am where my heart belongs”. My husband hasn’t been home for sometime, so this really threw me off balance and my mind went blank.
    As if that was not enough, this morning I found out that my daughter is gay. Now this crushed me, and I kept blaming my self why my husband and daughter has just decide to be wayward? Hated myself but now I have been encourged, I think I need to start loving my self…..all the people that I have sacrificed my self to have betrayed me, I think it’s time to have time for me and to love me.
