There is nothing like a mother’s love
When I was 13 I had to have scoliosis surgery. This was a very difficult time in my life. I often asked God questions like “Why me?” and “Why couldn’t you heal me of this? Why do I have to go through this?” I wore a back brace for 1 year and 80% of the time this stops the spine from continuing to curve. I was part of the 20% and the brace did not work. The surgery was done to correct the curvature of my spine and 10 of my vertebrae were fused.
I remember waking up after surgery and I was so grateful that my loving family was around me. I have always liked having my back & arms scratched by my mom. I distinctly remember the first night after surgery my mom sat on a chair by my bed in the ICU and scratched my arm the entire night. If she stopped I would move my arm and she would start again. That is LOVE! For 8 or more hours my mom sat and scratched my arm because she knew that was the one thing that would make me feel better. When I think of this I am reminded of Matthew 7:11:If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
I love this because I know how much my mom wanted to give joy, peace, comfort at this down time in my life. God, the creator of Heavens & Earth, knit you together perfectly in your mother’s womb. Can you imagine how much he wants to bless us? I know he is smiling when he pours His Spirit on us. I know he is filled when joy when we embrace His presence and find the peace that passes all understanding. Whatever trouble you are facing right now remember that God wants to bless us as His children and he is able to do immeasurably more than we could ever ask or imagine!
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. Matthew 21:22
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you; or every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Matthew 7:8
