I am so thankful for all of the mothers out there but especially thankful for my mother. In a world that is crazy right now I am thankful for a mother who raised us speaking the word of God over us and who had morals and standards that aligned with the way of the Lord. I have often thought...where would I be right now if it  were not for my mothers prayers and love. 



I remember in the 70's being out away from the Lord and drinking, drugging and all the things we did in those days. I remember living in a state of paranoia but when I would go to my moms she always set an atmosphere of the safety of the presence of God and when I would come to her house in those days, I just felt peace and safety. 



This is what the world is looking for even though they don't understand it. I have heard people say when they come to my Moms that they felt the same thing. Mom always worshipped and sang around our house also and as we all know God inhabits the praise of His people! 



This is what is needed in this day and age that we are living in. I understand that in the days we live in that it takes two incomes but I have often thought, what wold this world be if Mom's were able to stay home with their children like my mom did when we were young. What if they were like my mom and would live their lives before their children in obedience to the Lord and set the atmosphere for them instead of seeking more stuff! Oh yes, we weren't rich and yes my Dad worked very hard but we had peace, love and joy. I sometimes wonder what it would be like if we went back to the old paths...Just thinking...  



So, just wanted to say, thank you to all the moms who love, pray , work hard and make life good for their children and especially you who have led them to know the Lord!  I feel the Lord say good Job to you all! And BTW Happy Mother's Day to my mom  . I love yo with all my heart and I love all of you my mother friends!

I needed to hear this today. Its been sooo very difficult for a long time honestly asked God if I was the toxic one and just didn't realize it so I could repent

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
