Being a new mom is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding, seasons. The Bible gives many examples of new mothers who loved their children in an almost incomparable way—Hannah, Mary, Elizabeth and Eunice are just a few examples of this. Even though the Bible gives these clear examples, it also displays God’s love as even greater than theirs, saying that it would be more likely for a mother to forget their own nursing child than for God to forget you! These verse offer encouragement for weary new moms to trust in God for strength and comfort.
