Truly I am your servant, Lord;
I serve you just as my mother did;
You have freed me from my chains.
Being a mother, the second part of this verse stands out to me–
as my mother did;
What faith have I modeled for my children?
Have they known me as a servant of the Lord?
Have they watched me serve Him and chosen to do the same?
The last part of the verse speaks of freedom.
So many things in life can be likened to chains.
Chains that bind and constrict.
Chains that keep us from moving forward.
There are no situations or circumstances that are greater than God’s power to control them.
God can set us free.
In that freedom, we are loosed to serve Him in love and gratitude.
As we do this, we are creating a legacy for our children.
