On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”~John 2:1-3 NIV
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for giving me Sadie Mason Venable to be my Mother. She gave of herself unconditionally, and she believed in her children unconditionally. She believed in me at times I did not believe in myself. She saw my potential, and what God would have me be. I believe Your Mother was the same way.
John 2 tells us that You and Your disciples had been invited to a wedding where Your Mother was in attendance. When they ran out of wine, she told You. You asked her what that had to do with You and her, and You said Your hour had not yet come.
You had a mother.
My friend, Tommy, put it this way, “While You had a very heavenly Father, You also had a very earthly Mother.”
Lord, You created mothers to see the best in their children, to plant the seeds of Your word in them, to nurture and affirm them, to hold and love them, to discipline and guide them until it is time to release the mature child into the calling You have given them for their lives. So it was with my mother, Sadie, and so it is with Your mother, Mary.
Mothers encourage us to take steps into our destiny, even when we do not realize our time has come.~Evelyn Mason Wells, contributing author to Love Knots: Stories of Faith, Family, and Friendships
At the end of the day the water was turned into wine. Because You honored Your mother and she honored You….
Mothers are a gift from God. They are Your hands and heart to their children. Mothers encourage us to take steps into our destiny, even when we do not realize our time has come. My mother believed in me, as Your mother believed in You.
Thank You that, just as Mary saw what was best and acted on it, my mother never gave up on me during my difficult years. She believed in me when no one else did. She saw me through Your eyes. She saw good – not my good because I am not – but she saw Your good within me.
Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and Mother is in heaven with You. Could You please tell her I love her and thank her for being Your hands and heart to her children?
Share thoughts about a mother you admire.
Lord Jesus, please help me to be like my mother and Yours. Amen
