God’s Gift to Me

mom and me

Teaching one’s child to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest gift a parent can give, the greatest legacy a parent can leave.

One of the ways our parents teach us about Jesus is by showing us Jesus through themselves.

I can honestly say that throughout my darkest experiences over the years—bullying, getting through college and grad school, painful romantic experiences, litigation, rejections from family members, unemployment and stressful, even traumatic job situations, numerous and various disappointments, etc., etc., etc.—my constant companions, the only ones I could truly depend on, have been Christ and my mom.

Through her constant presence in my struggles, I learned about the faithfulness of God.

Through her unwavering support, I learned about the strength of God.

And through her enduring love, even during my grouchiness, unkindness, temper tantrums, and bad moods, I learned about the love, forgiveness, and grace of God.

So, I want to say Happy Mother’s Day to my mom, a great mother and a great woman of God! Thank you for being the greatest mother in the world and thank you for teaching me about Jesus! I love you!!!

Proverbs 31
10 Who can find a virtuous woman?
for her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her,
so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil
all the days of her life.
13 She seeketh wool, and flax,
and worketh willingly with her hands.
14 She is like the merchants’ ships;
she bringeth her food from afar.
15 She riseth also while it is yet night,
and giveth meat to her household,
and a portion to her maidens.
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it:
with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth her loins with strength,
and strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good:
her candle goeth not out by night.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle,
and her hands hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor;
yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household:
for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry;
her clothing is silk and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates,
when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it;
and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing;
and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household,
and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands;
and let her own works praise her in the gates.
