Growing up, I remember the old folks saying, “He might not come when you want him, but he’s right on time. He’s an on time God.” Those words stayed with me; they resonated in my soul.
My Mother was not an ordained minister, but believe me when I tell you this - that woman could preach; she could bring the word! Oh yes, she had a way of telling you things that you never forgot. She told me not once but over and over again, "Our God will never leave your side. Trust in him. She continued by saying -
He's a Burden Bearer and a Heavy Load Sharer. He is a Heart Fixer and a Mind Regulator. He is the Alpha and Omega; the beginning and the end. No matter what you're going through, God will deliver you. Try him for yourself! You’ll never be disappointed. You’ll never be alone. Pray! And if you're gonna pray, don't worry. If you're gonna worry, don't pray. He'll hear your prayers whether you're in Mississippi or Ohio. You gotta have faith. Lay your burdens on him. He'll never leave you or forsake you!"
I say, “Thank you God for your love, blessings, protection, grace, and covering!
Thank you for giving me a praying Momma who taught me to stand on the Word; who taught me how to pray; who taught me to trust in the Lord!”
What she taught me, I taught my children!
As a family, our love for you Heavenly Father has traveled many miles, crossed multiple states, and has been planted in our hearts - one generation after another!
Thank you Lord for laying your life down so that we all may live! Happy Sunday! Blessings!
