Today is a day set aside to love, remember and bless the Mom who willing gave us life. We may not all be mothers, but we all have one.
I’m thinking today of those moms in the Bible who have inspired me. What an example of faith they are by exhibiting trust and hope in the same God we worship and love today.
Hannah prayed in faith for something she couldn’t see. And when God heard her cries and answered her prayer, she kept her promise faithfully. Read about her in 1 Samuel 1. This story must be read to fully appreciate.
I love the broken story of Naomi redeemed in surprising ways. She lost so much and then her daughter-in-law surprised her by her love. The best part Naomi never realized was that her story would be named in the lineage of Jesus, our Savior. Read her story in Ruth.
Finally, how can I not remember Mary’s response to what most would see as a frightening event? An angel appeared telling her impossible things. Yet her first response was, “be it to me as you say.” such faith through embarrassing and hard circumstances. My favorite account of her story is in Luke where her prayer is recorded.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of your mothers whether she is alive or remembered in the heart. What story is God writing in your family? We can be sure that the God of these mothers recorded in the Bible is the same God we worship this Mother’s Day!
