Honoring Mom


“Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), Ephesians 6:2 ESV

My mom was smart, beautiful and a successful novelist, but she also battled with the unseen enemy of mental illness so writing about her has not been easy. Those who have never lived with someone with their own version of reality may never understand. But God doesn’t ask us to understand, only to love and honor her with more than just flowers.

So today thanks for a mom who was also fun and adventurous. Thanks that she taught me to stand up for the weak and to not be afraid of being different. Thanks for learning that commitment means never giving up even when no one else believes in you. Thanks God for my mom who I never understood but who loved me to the end!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
