True Love is Better than Ten Sons

Special occasions such as Christmas or Valentine’s day are intended to bring joy and happiness to everyone, but they sometimes evoke feelings of loneliness and sadness. Mother’s day is no exception.

Society tends to define a mother as a woman who gives birth to a child and so ladies who have been struggling to conceive will feel excluded and may even become depressed.

We need to redefine motherhood and emphasize the love and nurturing that a woman gives to a child whether by adoption, foster care, teaching or babysitting.


Therefore, I want to take this opportunity to encourage you to identify these special ladies who have been teaching, babysitting or being a godmother to your children and honor them with a special gift on Mother’s Day.

Do not forget to honor all ladies who have opened their hearts and homes to a child who is in need. Also to every married woman who are unable to conceive and those who had multiple miscarriages, we lift you up and encourage you to have hope.

God has seen your pain, and He will restore all that the enemy has stolen from you in full measure, press down, shaken together and running over. So be strong in the Lord for the best is yet to come.

The story of Hannah is a message of hope and strength to these ladies (1 Samuel 1). Hannah was one of the two wives of her husband, but she was his favorite. However, she was unable to conceive.

As a result, she was ridiculed by her adversary every day. She became unhappy with the burden of her distress. Finally, when she learned to put God first above her personal desires the Lord opened her womb, and she gave birth to Samuel one of the greatest prophets of Israel.

Your preliminary struggles to conceive is a test to remove all the unwanted elements in your life so that you will become an empty vessel to be filled with God.

The Lord Jehovah has answered your prayers, and you will give birth to greatness.

Let your love reciprocate and return to your Creator because true love is better than ten sons.

I wish to dedicate this poem to these special ladies, and I hope it will resonate in their hearts and give birth to life.


Love that is selfless;

Love that is true;

Love that sacrifices pride on the altar of redemption –

The love of Christ!

This love transcends beyond the passage of time;mom-1363917_640

It surpasses all understanding.

This love is better than ten sons.


Let your love revolve!

As you receive it,

You must return it to the One who created it.

Release your burden!

Surrender your desires!

Pour out your soul before the Lord.

Give Him your ALL, withhold not anything.


Allow true love to reciprocate between your Creator and you.

Then the seed deep within your womb will conceive to bring forth life.

“And he shall be unto you a restorer of your life,

And a nourisher of your old age” (Ruth 4:15)

“He shall be LENT to the Lord as long as he lives

And all the days of his separation he will be holy unto the Lord.”(1 Samuel 1:28; Num. 6:8)

He shall become a king and priest unto God our Father.


So arise O’ woman!mom-1231439_640

Let your countenance shines forth!

For the Lord has turned your sorrow into dancing.

Let your heart rejoice in the Lord;

Let your horn exalt in the Lord

And your mouth enlarged over your enemies

Because the Lord has given you His salvation

Rejoice in the Lord, for there is none holy as the Lord;

For there is none besides him;

Neither is there any Rock like our God. (1 Samuel 2: 1-2)


“Go in peace;

And the God of Israel will grant you the petition that you have asked of Him.” (1 Samuel 1:17).

  1. Thank you yvonne. I am constantly interceding for those special mothers who are trying desperately to give birth to a child. I know the story of Hannah will inspire them and give them hope.


  2. Reblogged this on Becoming the Oil and the Wine and commented:

    Today is a special day for all mothers but we must not forget to honor those mothers who have difficulty in giving birth to a child and those who foster children.
    True love is indeed better than ten sons so let your love revolves between yourself and your Creator so that the seed inside of you will germinate.

  3. I have a daughter who cannot have children of her own. She has been the step-mother of her husband’s daughter since they were married just before the girl’s 3rd birthday. I have been saddened for all the years that she’s been in this role and has raised her step-daughter. He husband has never recognized her motherly role to his daughter on any Mother’s Day. He’s never let his daughter call her ‘mom’ because of her biological mom who has her on weekends and holidays. I think this failure has damaged the relationship, though my daughter has been there for her step-daughter through many things. Now they are adopting two little boys, brothers, that they have fostered since the youngest was just 5 weeks old. He will be two this summer. I have prayed for years for her to have a child of her own to call her ‘mommy’ and now that the adoption is imminent we are thanking God for these children. I Samuel 1:27 is a verse we hold dear to our hearts.

  4. Hi Grandma Peachy, It is great to hear from you and that you find this post a blessing. It is sad that your daughter’s husband never recognised the motherly role she played for his daughter.
    She appeared to be an excellent mother. Motherhood in the eyes of God is not only defined by conception but by the love that she gives to her children. We also need to recognise this.
    I am sure that your daughter appreciates the love and support that you give her. Keep up the good work and I will pray for you and your family. God bless you.
