Happy Mother's Day to all of you who are mothers. This Sunday we have a special message for everyone especially, mothers. One of our spiritual moms, Rev. Linda Ryan will be speaking a message of healing called "Love Letter to Mom's." Here is an insert of the message a portion of the opening and the closing words just to prepare your heart for the complete message.
I speak to those mothers who had beautiful hopes and dreams for their children, child, and one day all those dreams, visions were shattered. To those mothers who's children have not honored you as the Bible says. Maybe they don't talk to you. maybe you don't see them anymore; maybe they are on drugs, alcohol, in gender confusion, or depressed. Maybe your child is suicidal. Our hearts are broken, crushed in pain, questioning the Lord what could I have done differently so my child would have turned out like those good children? I was one of those mothers.
What did I learn during this journey? God is love and the key is ...His love will never fail us. He loved me before the foundation of the earth. Then He chose me and He has an everlasting love for me. I am His beloved. I place my hope in the love of God, rather than hinging my happiness on the well-meaning but broken affections of people. I trust a love that existed before the earth was formed, a love that made the ultimate sacrifice for my renewal. A love that gave up Glory and experienced our lack in order to be near. A love that is motivated by love for the other person. Compassionate, eternal, and unconditional not based on performance. This kind of love that will Never Fail you or me because love holds the final victory in Jesus Christ. HIS LOVE NEVER FAILS.
Rev. Linda Ryan
