Remembering Mama

Today am giving God thanks for Mama’s life. Today she would have been 103 years old, but God took her home seventeen years ago. I am grateful to God for Mama’s life of 86 years.

Today as I remember Mama I am grateful that she is no longer in pain, but resting. I am grateful Mama taught me how to pray and led by example. She encouraged me to trust God and not curse God. I still remember her voice as she read the bible and prayed those long prayers. I also remember her voice, her laughter, her cooking and her groans while she prayed.

Mama’s wisdom rubbed off on me so much so that when I echo things that she would say, people always laugh and ask where I get that from. Sometimes I still hear my Mama’s words ringing in my ear whenever I engage in things that I shouldn’t have done. Mama would always go out of her way to help others. She was just a giver and a strong woman of faith.

Mama was a precious gift from God, so much beauty, grace, love and patience she possessed. Mama’s passion for life, her compassion for others, and her loyalty to her faith, her self-sacrifice, and an uncomplaining spirit remains etched with a platinum pen, with an exquisite diamond tip and a steady flow of spectrum light on all those she loved, touched, and served. I am forever grateful for the influence that her love, wisdom, amity, discipline and guidance have in my life. I am forever grateful for how she nurtured me in the faith.

I will forever love and adore you Mama for everything you taught me in life. Your death took away joy from our lives but we will hold on to the beautiful memories of times spent with you. Mama you were and always will be, our gold standard. Rest well Mama.

Resting In God’s Faithfulness

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:23).

God does not always answer my prayers the way I would hope, but He remains a faithful God. I am thankful that God is faithful, he never changes. He is the same God of Moses, Elijah, Abraham and Sarah. He is the same God of the three Hebrew boys. The God who was with Daniel in the lion’s den. He keeps His word and we do well to obey and trust Him. In our distress, this is the unchanging God who is faithful. He is faithful even when we are faithless. 

“Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; Deuteronomy 7:9

None is faithful like my God. When you are discouraged, remember God’s faithfulness. My prayer is that we will be conscious of his faithfulness in our lives each day.

As always thank you for reading. I am truly grateful that you stopped by. Feel free to like, share, leave your thought or reblog. Until we meet again in this space…much love and blessings.♥♥♥
