As we approach Mother's Day weekend, I know there are some who may find this weekend to be difficult. Whether you have lost your mom due to death, or due to past hurts, I want you to know that you have not been forgotten. The Lord wants you to know that He loves you very much and that He hasn't forgotten about you and what you are going through. When you find yourself feeling sad or discouraged, remember the following scripture:
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD'S favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion--to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. Isaiah 61:1-3 (NIV)
IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.
