Sermon Quotes on Mother's Day

You Carry Me

Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all the remnant of the house of Israel, who have been borne by me from your birth, carried from the womb, even to your old age I am he, even when you turn gray I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save. – Isaiah 46:3-4

Faithful One

You carry me before my first cry

You cradle me in my mother’s womb

You make me me and bless me with life


Faithful One

You carry me into my becoming

You bear me into a wider world

You inspire me and bless me with purpose

Faithful One

You carry me into maturity

You hold me as my flesh falters and fails

You assure me and help me pass on your blessing

Faithful One

You carry me into forever

You draw me to your breast

You save me and bless me with the fullness of you

I am born

I am borne

I am born again

You carry me through

Hallelujah, Amen.

Lord our Lord – How majestic is Your name in all the earth. 

The sun’s light is but a dim flicker  

next to the brightness of Your glory. 

Your care is far more intimate  

than that of a mother sparrow hovering over her next. 

Your faithfulness is even more consistent  

than the rising of the sun and the passing of seasons. 

Your blessings come in showers that refresh and renew us  

more than the spring rains. 

And You meet us wherever we are –  

in a sanctuary, on a lawn,  

walking a beach, working in a desk,  

driving a van full of kids to a ball game,  

and laying our head on the pillow a night. 


For who You are and all You do on our behalf, 

We thank and praise You this morning. 

Thank You for love shown us by dads and moms. 

Thank you for grandparents …for  sisters and brothers …  

for friends, and even for strangers, 

who grace our lives with kindness and care.
