Anyone who reads Life with Lynnie (LwL) fairly regularly, or knows me personally, knows that I love God.
And, today is SONday. My Lord's Day!
On the day when we honour Him, since I've not been well, I usually worship and/or listen to preachers/teachers either on the radio, television or on the internet. Today, is no different.
I am truly thankful for this day.
God provided it as a day of rest, for us. Even if we need to work on this day, as long as we use one day, to not just rest, but honour Him, it's okay.
It always makes me think about how blessed we are. And, how blessed I truly am!
The other day, my daughter P made a posting on Facebook (FB) that was different. Extremely, unique. A real blessing.
Since she posted it for all to see, I am reposting here, so you can see what she wrote:
"You wouldn't believe what happened to me today..... I was thanking one of the school heads today and they thanked me!!!! Me!!!! I was confused and he informed me a family member was sick, and he wondered how he would care for a special child... And he thought of me! He thanked me for being a great parent. Standing up for him when needed, working side by side with the school, for Always being involved! Oh i cried with him!!!!!! Trust me it wasn't easy but it was extremely nice to be recognized!!"
Believe me when I say that I was happy for her. If you knew what was behind all this, you'd understand why.
You see, my daughter has had her hands full, just dealing with her own life, considering she has her own disability and health concerns. In addition, she is raising children with serious health problems and special needs.
I praise God for my daughter, P. She's done so well! How proud I am of her!
Not just because she's managed to deal with her own life's concerns, but also because she's been a great mom to her children. My grandchildren. For this, I am truly grateful to God!
I am so very thankful that you were recognized by a school official, for being the great mom that you are. My heart feels like it wants to burst, just thinking that for once in your life, that someone unrelated to you, truly honoured you by speaking truth, concerning you being a mom.
Whenever I think of the truth about any situation, just hearing the word truth, reminds me of my Lord, Jesus Christ.
Then, I usually think of John 14:6, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
When I think of the truth of that Bible verse, I think about how some people are being misled. Some people believe that all roads lead to God. But, they don't.
God's Word, the Bible, is clear. There is no other way to God. There is only one (1) way to God. And, that is... by trusting in Jesus Christ.
If you are not trusting in Jesus Christ for your salvation, please read the New Testament portion of the Bible. Begin reading in the book of John.
After all, faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).
Until next time...
