Hey Mothers of a Little Black Male Child

Booker T. Washington said, “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.”

What are obstacles? Well Wikimedia said, “An obstacle (also called a barrier, impediment, or stumbling block) is an object, thing, action or situation that causes an obstruction. Different types of obstacles can include physical, economic, biopsychosocial, cultural, political, technological”, low self-esteem.

Hey Mothers of a little Black Male Child, you gave birth to someone that will face many obstacles in his life. He will conquer some and he will fall to some. He will recognize some and he will be caught off guard by some. He will attack some and he will fear some. He will grow because of some and he will be stunted by some. He will be hurt by some and some he will walk away from with his head held high. Some will be totally out of his control and some will result in victory because of his decisions.

Hey Mothers of a Little Black Male Child, you play a major role in his decisions when facing an obstacle. Your voice in his little ears should be the voice of God reminding him who he is and pointing out his value. Hey Mothers of a Little Black Male Child it will be your box full of prayers that you stored up that will protect him and shield him. It will be your prayers in the midnight hour that commands blessings upon him. It will be your Study of the Word that help directs his future. Hey Mothers of a Little Black Male Child it is your arms that restrict him as a child from being captivated by the temptation to draw him to the streets. Hey Mothers of a Little Black Male Child it is your God given wisdom that opens up a book for him to read instead of a video game.

His path way will sometimes be dark and cloudy, will be filled with decisions after decisions, will sometimes go from bad to worse, but isn’t it comforting to know that you instilled the right things, you did the proper teachings, you said no when he wanted a yes, you stayed before God on his behalf.

Society will not be kind to him. He will leave your house one day with a label on his back simply because he is a black male child. His path will not be as easy as others with a different skin color. He will have to work harder, move faster, jump higher and go further. He will have to dream bigger and shoot for higher goals. But Hey Mothers of a Little Black Male Child don’t you give up on him. You remind him that he was created in the image of Christ. You remind him that Jesus paid the price for his freedom and for his rights. You remind that Little Black Male Child that God said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you”.

When he steps to the left of your teachings keep him lifted in prayer. When he falls short or stumble by the way side or goes in a different direction he is still your Little Black Male Child given to you by God.

Stay on your knees, Mothers. Stay in the Word, Mothers. Keep that Heaven connection in your home, Mothers. Cry aloud and spare not, lift up your voice, Mothers, like a trumpet.. Cry for your Little Black Male Child. Cry not tears of fear, but cry the tears of A Mother that’s raising or raised an Overcomer. Obstacles will come, but Jessie Owen’s said, “The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself-the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us-that’s where it’s at.” Hey Mothers of a Little Black Male Child when society try to tell him he doesn’t matter, that his life is worthless and that he is only a statistic, you tell him in his little ears what IJohn 4:4 says, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” #RaisingOvercomers #HeyMothers
