It’s been many years since my mother died, but I still miss her. You really can’t understand that loss, unless you live through it. I had a GREAT mom. Not just a good mom. She was saved, she served God, she was an excellent example of a virtuous woman. She had a spotless reputation and she raised me correctly. She bore six children and raised two step-children. She is the reason I am a woman of virtue.
But after losing her and with any loss, I had to recover and not get bitter. The reason I was prompted to write this blog post, is because I was watching something and I felt the Lord was saying that someone has grown so bitter over the death of their mother that it’s affecting every area of their life.They are making a lot of destructive decisions because of it. But God is standing by right now to heal. As you go to God in prayer and forgive HIM for taking your mom, you will begin to feel relief. You have even begun to wonder what is wrong with you and why you are so bound up in your spirit. You are bitter and you need to let it go.
I didn’t get angry with God after my mom died. I got angry at myself and my family. I felt we just let her go. I felt that we were not proactive enough when she got her cancer diagnosis. I felt I didn’t pray enough or fast enough. I felt the family didn’t take it seriously enough.That was my hurdle. But for someone else, you have put the blame squarely on God’s “shoulders” and you don’t go to church anymore and you are turning to new age teaching and worldly philosophies and even sinful behavior and people, to numb the pain. The truth is you backslid when your mother died. God is calling you back to himself TODAY!
Surrender it today and watch what God does!
2 Corinthians 6:2
Amplified Bible (AMP)
2 For He says, In the time of favor (of an assured welcome) I have listened to and heeded your call, and I have helped you on the day of deliverance (the day of salvation). Behold, now is truly the time for a gracious welcome and acceptance [of you from God]; behold, now is the day of salvation!
