Warrior Mamas

When your child is a warrior, you have no choice but to go into battle.

When your warrior goes to heaven, the fight is NOT over.

When you regain your strength, even a tiny part, you come back to the frontline.

You become the voice for those that can’t speak. It might look different, some warrior parents collect money, some give gifts, some host parties, some write about awareness, and some come quietly along side others giving strength and encouragement.

When your friends’ children are under attack, you take it personally. When they hurt, you hurt with them. You don’t have to know every detail; you have images burned into your mind that take you straight back onto the battlefield.

We cancer parents often share prayer requests for the children. Sometimes it’s for healing, sometimes it covers all the trauma our kids go through. Other times it is for us, our hearts, and our sorrow.

Tonight, I ask that you pray for my local cancer friends and their children. Our mama hearts are aching, our minds are in despair, our hope is in the Lord, but we need him to come alongside us and carry us. One of our own is very, very sick.

All day my heart has been sick for her. My body feels like it has been slammed with 2020’s devastation and the reminder of all the things I heard this same time two years ago. The trauma comes pouring out with physical pain, exhaustion, and grief. This is not about me, but I’m the one that feels it in every cell of my body. Will this physical response go on forever? It is simply compassion? There is so much I want to say, yet nothing I can get out other than, “I am sad. So very sad”.

I keep crying out, “Lord, we are trusting that though we grow weary, you are the one who gives us strength. We are weak oh, Lord, give us power. Our hope is in you, renew us. Relieve our weary souls and let us not be faint in the battle”

28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 30:28-31
