Mother’s Day. A special day set aside to honor the women who have gone before us. The trail blazers. The pioneers. My mother was very special. Born when covered wagons were still rolling and buffalo roamed prairies, she learned stamina and persistence early on. Her life was hard yet she remained soft. She was always working, even when at home. She taught me the most valuable lessons of life. She taught me to laugh often, forgive quickly, love always. The greatest thing she taught me was to look to, trust in and rely on God. Oh beloved, what are you thinking this morning? Perhaps your mother wasn’t the role model you wish she’d been. Regardless, somewhere in your life a woman has made a difference in your life. While you may not be a mother, you too have made a difference in someone’s life. This day is set aside to honor women and I know wherever you are in your heart and mind on this day, Someone knew you before the foundation of the world. Someone had a plan for your life, a plan for good . Today may be hard. It could be a day of mourning, but because of the Lord, you can rejoice! Because of the Lord you can look up and give thanks! Things may not be the way you want them to be, but you can take this day and lay it before Him. He will make an ordinary day into something incredibly special. Why? How? Because beloved, He loves you, He cares for you, He defends you, He redeems you, He makes something beautiful out of any past. Not only will He redeem your past, He will make your future bright! Run to Him this morning and thank Him that somewhere a mother made a difference. Somehow you can make a difference. It’s Mother’s Day but it’s the Lord’s Day as well! How lavish, how perfect, how abundant is His love for you! Our Redeemer, the LORD of hosts is His name, The Holy One of Israel. Isaiah 47:4 “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.” Proverbs 31:30 "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! ' Philippians 4:4
