My mother is a genuinely good person. How she demonstrates her love is also quite interesting. For example, if you tell her that you’re not feeling well, she’ll most likely say it’s because you’re not eating well or taking care of yourself.
Many may probably say that’s a typical African mother for you!
For a long time I misunderstood her reactions and because of that, I preferred not to tell her what was going on in my life, because I did not want to be blamed.
One day, I had a light bulb moment that if there is anyone on this earth who is on my side, it’s my mother. She loves me and she carries everything that’s going on in my life, and in my sisters’ lives, to heart and to prayer. I settled this in my heart.
I suppose I will understand this better when I become a mother.
Settle in your heart that the Lord is good…
I once heard a pastor say that we “should settle in our hearts that the Lord is good”. It does not matter what happens to you, your family, your country etc etc. The LORD IS GOOD AND HE IS ON YOUR SIDE. HE IS NOT YOUR ENEMY, HE IS YOUR GREATEST FAN.
Rom 5:8 – But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners (NLT).
Don’t run away from Him, run to Him. Settle in your heart that the Lord is good.
