Mom Obeyed God

Hardly a day goes by that I am not reminded of my Mom in some way. So often lately, I have had the opportunity to share about her with people I meet in my day to day journey. She wasn’t perfect but she taught me so many “golden nuggets” for life that I use constantly.

Just a few days ago I found myself sharing the ‘Golden Rule’ with the cashier at the Dollar Tree store:

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” 

I told her Mom was always reciting it. She listened attentively and as I walked away, I hoped I had dropped one of my Mom’s “nuggets” into her life.

It wasn’t always love and sweetness between Mom and me. I attended college out of town so I could get away from her ‘old fashioned’ rules and having to attend church meetings. I wanted to go and do “my own thing”.

That rebellious attitude of mine eventually led me down a path of drugs, homosexuality and away from my Christian upbringing. For almost ten years I was so lost and on my way to hell. I even contemplated taking my life…but, I had a praying Mom!

In time, the Lord answered her prayers and healed her aching heart. He called me unto Himself. I surrendered, confessed my sins, asked for forgiveness, and turned from my wicked ways to begin following Him.

Many thanks to my Mom, for obeying God’s instruction:

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6 KJV)

She did train me according to the Bible and I knew it was the Lord I needed when I reached the end of my rope. Instead of suicide, I chose Jesus Christ and life eternal because Mom obeyed God.
