3 Untapped Superpowers Every Mom Should Use

Ian McClellan   -  

According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, this was the Origin of mothers day:

Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia, whose mother had organized women’s groups to promote friendship and health, originated Mother’s Day. On May 12, 1907, she held a memorial service at her late mother’s church in GraftonWest Virginia. Within five years virtually every state was observing the day, and in 1914 U.S. Pres. Woodrow Wilson made it a national holiday.” 

It’s that particular Sunday in May once again, mom! Yet your value and power stretch well beyond a single day of recognition.  

You have heard that “with great power comes great responsibility.” 

So is essential that you know your powers and learn how to harness them
That is why I have included a list of 3 superpowers research has shown to exist predominantly within the domain of motherhood.
You may look at this list and think these are not superpowers… 
YET statistically speaking, you, MOM, have the overwhelming edge in these areas. 
Superpower #1: INFLUENCER
A recent Pew Research study said:

“two-thirds of respondents said their mom had the most impact on their religious lives.”

This means most kids are following the lead of their mom when it comes to faith.
Don’t underestimate modeling your faith for your kids. Take them to church, read the bible with them, serve others together, and boldly share your spiritual journey. 
Superpower #2: CONFIDANT 
You have their ear. Barna says that over 80% of teens bring their questions about faith, the Bible, and/ or something bothering them to their mom. 
Your kids trust what you have to say about faith and life. Don’t feel like you have to have all the answers. Just be willing to honestly and authentically walk with them through the questions they may have. 
Superpower #3: COACH
Barna also says that over 70% of teens go to their mom as their primary source of encouragement, advice, help, and sympathy. 
Your opinion matters. As any seasoned coach knows, you cannot force a player to do anything. Yet, if players trust you, they will continue to return to you knowing that you have their best interest in mind.
Many moms’ hearts ache when their children make unfortunate choices but keep the faith; statistically speaking, they come back to your loving, trustworthy embrace. 
So here’s to you, mom! We love you. Keep showing us the goodness of God. 
Be encouraged this mother’s day with all the great things that make you so awesome. 
Proverbs 31

10  an excellent wife who can find?

She is far more precious than jewels.

 11  The heart of her husband trusts in her,

and he will have no lack of gain.

 12  She does him good, and not harm,

all the days of her life.

 13  She seeks wool and flax,

and works with willing hands.

 14  She is like the ships of the merchant;

she brings her food from afar.

 15  She rises while it is yet night

and provides food for her household

and portions for her maidens.

 16  She considers a field and buys it;

with the fruit of her hands, she plants a vineyard.

 17  She dresses herself with strength

and makes her arms strong.

 18  She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.

Her lamp does not go out at night.

 19  She puts her hands to the distaff,

and her hands hold the spindle.

 20  She opens her hand to the poor

and reaches out her hands to the needy.

 21  She is not afraid of snow for her household,

for all her household are clothed in scarlet.

 22  She makes bed coverings for herself;

her clothing is fine linen and purple.

 23  Her husband is known in the gates

when he sits among the elders of the land.

 24  She makes linen garments and sells them;

she delivers sashes to the merchant.

 25  strength and dignity are her clothing,

and she laughs at the time to come.

 26  She opens her mouth with wisdom,

and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

 27  She looks well to the ways of her household

and does not eat the bread of idleness.

 28  Her children rise up and call her blessed;

her husband also, and he praises her:

 29  “Many women have done excellently,

but you surpass them all.”

 30  charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,

but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

 31  Give her of the fruit of her hands,

and let her works praise her in the gates.
