Leading and teaching a Mom Heart group is not about authority, or great faith, or special training, or strong personality, or spiritual giftedness, or appearance, or deep knowledge. It’s about being faithful to serve, available to God, and willing to learn. David, who would become king of Israel, did not look like a future king, but God told Samuel to choose and anoint him, “for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7). If you are faithful, available, and teachable, then God is not concerned about the outward appearances such as worldly qualifications and qualities; God is looking at your heart.
“For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His” (2 Chronicles 16:9).
If you believe there is a need today to “restore moms’ hearts to God’s heart for motherhood,” then perhaps God is moving you to start a Mom Heart group. You can pray, get counsel from others, research, and make Pro-Con lists, but in the end you will need to take a step of faith. At some point you will say to God, “I believe this is what you want me to do, so I am ready to take a step of faith and do it.” That’s when you move from walking by sight, to walking by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7)—that’s when you say, “This is what I want to do for God.”
If you’re ready to become a link in the 2,000-year-old chain stretching back to Jesus, Paul, Timothy, and all who have followed them, then take that step of faith. You will be blessed because of your faith, and other moms will be blessed through you.
