Happy Mother’s Day-Truths My Mom Taught Me

Happy Mother’s Day friends! I know this can be a difficult day for many of us. I lost my Mom nine years ago and Mother’s Day is still a little hard for me. If you have lost your Mom, I am praying for you.

Happy Mother's Day-Truths My Mom Taught Me

Today we are spending the morning in the hospital with my father-in-law. He is not doing well, and we are all taking turns staying with him.

Life is full of changes. I don’t always like the changes, but I’m learning there’s not much I can do about it. The one thing that doesn’t change is God, and I’m thankful he is faithful.

A few years ago I shared these truths that my Mom taught me. I thought I would share them again. They are good reminders as we navigate this life.

1. Keep the faith!

“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” 1 Timothy 6:12

Don’t waver, don’t stop believing. In a world that is trying more than ever to tell us there is no truth, Jesus is the TRUTH!

2. Rise Up!

“Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?” Psalm 94:16

We need to rise up and take a stand for what we believe. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. Don’t stop sharing it!

 3. Teach Your Faith.

Oh, this one is so important! WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR TEACHING OUR CHILDREN.

“Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”  Deuteronomy 11:19

We have to teach our children to trust and love Jesus.

4. Pray!

While we can’t control situations in our life, the one thing we can do is PRAY. As Moms, we need to be committed to praying for our children.

You might not see all of your prayers you are praying over your children and grandchildren come to fruition while you’re here on earth but Revelation 5:8 says, And when he took the scroll, the four living beings and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp, and they held gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of God’s people.

Our prayers are continually going before our Father. Our prayers never DIE!

Let’s be Mom’s that are committed to sharing Christ with our children and our grandchildren.

If today is a difficult day for you, this song reminds us to trust God and take another step.

Well the band was playing, the flags were waving
And there you were
In the middle of a sunny day parade
The crowds were cheering, the sky was clear
Not a worry in the world
Marching on sure and steady, strong and straight
Take another step and another step and another step

Then the lightning flashed the thunder crashed
And suddenly
It began to rain and everybody ran
Then the sky went black as midnight
And you couldn’t see
Paralyzed by what you just can’t understand
And now here you are
You’re afraid to move
You don’t know where to go
You don’t know what to do

Take another step, take another step
When the road ahead is dark
And you don’t know where to go
Take another step, take another step
Trust God and take another step
And another step and another step
Take another step and another step and another step

We walk by faith and not by sight we know it’s true
We say it and sing it and love the way it sounds
But none of us can even begin to truly understand
What it really means ‘til all the lights go out
And there we are nothing to hold on to
But the promises God’s made to me and you

Take another step, take another step
When the road ahead is dark
And you don’t know where to go
Take another step, take another step
Trust God and take another step

If there’s an ocean in front of you
You know what you’ve gotta do
Take another step and another step
Maybe He’ll turn the water into land
And maybe He’ll take your hand and say
Let’s take a walk on the waves
Will you trust Me either way
And take another step
Take another step

Take another step
Take another step
Trust God and take another step
Take another step
When the road ahead is dark
And you don’t know where to go
Take another step
Take another step
Trust God and take another step
And another step and another step
Take another step and another step and another step
Take another step and another step and another step
Take another step and another step and another step
