The older I get, the more this bothers me. I can't tell you how frustrated I get when conversations never really get to the important matters. For Christians, shouldn't the Lord be the biggest thing in our lives? And, if He is the biggest thing in our life, then why are we so scared to talk about it.
Anyway, I'm not trying to get on a soapbox here, but this is something that's really been on my heart lately. I often leave gatherings and think, "There wasn't a single thing of any eternal importance discussed." Maybe this is my mindset because I have a serious personality. Not that I don't enjoy having a good time, but I tend to be more reflective and heavy-hearted than light-hearted.
The picture above is me and my mom. Isn't she the most beautiful lady? With today being Mothers' Day, I can't help but think about my mom, and all that she's taught me. Over the years, I've been able to stand back and watch her faith grow into a beautiful witness. Mom has taught me to talk about my walk with the Lord. She has taught me to be bold and passionate and courageous when speaking of His power and might. She has taught me to be unashamed when crediting Him with all things good in my life.
Thank you, Mom, for living out your faith. I love you!
Happy Mothers' Day!
