The Music of Our Heartstrings



(Isaiah 16:6) "My heartstrings throb like harp strings..., my soul in sympathy…"


Well, I hope you mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. My husband as always makes it a special day for me as the mother of his children. However, I would be dishonest if I didn't mention that the day wasn't completely without its' few emotional tugs here and there.

It appears I still seek my worth and validation through the mothering of my children. How well they worship me would probably be a pretty good indicator of what kind of mom I am, don't you agree? Such a reminder of the precious life I gave these little precious bundle's of joy. Their life light sometimes blinding the reality of whom I really am.

So it's no wonder when things don't go my way, my heartstrings hit a chord out of tune where I then tend to cry out from a place of unworthiness deep from my soul. My needs are not being met. My children cannot meet my ever-parenting call thus I must be a failure as a mom.

It was this morning on my way to work that I realized once again that only my precious Savior can ever meet those needs. Not my children. Not my family. Christ must once and for all be the one--- as He reminds me that I am His and I am worthy. A parent, yes, because I was given that gift long ago.

But only my Savior is to play the music of my heartstrings….

For He is the musician…

In Him,

6 little hearts from you...:

Amen Connie!! Wonderful post and I was praying to God about this very thing this evening. I took me awhile and by awhile a few years but now I ask him to fill any void in my heart so I don't seek it elsewhere. Thank you for sharing this with us. I love your heart!!

Love,
Patty

You're giving them something of very great worth, Connie...roots in Jesus and wings to serve Him. There is no better thing than to hear that your kids are walking in the Lord.
I think you are so special!
Praying for a wonder-filled week...
Love in Him,
Holly
