In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson officially proclaimed Mother’s Day a national holiday to be held on the second Sunday of May. Thank God for mothers. We honor moms for all they have done and continue to do. We especially honor them for their faith—in God and in us.
A mother’s faith can propel children to do things they never thought possible. Their faith can cause their children to succeed where they would otherwise fail. Our mothers believe in us when we don’t believe in ourselves. That’s why it is so important for mothers to always speak positive, faith-filled words over their children.
My mom used to tell me, “Ken, it doesn’t matter what anyone else says. I believe in you, and with God’s help, you can do whatever you want to do!” I wouldn’t be preaching today if it weren’t for my mother.
A mother’s influence on her children is far greater than she may realize. If you are a mother and wonder if your good example has taught your children anything, I want to assure you that it has. I want to encourage you to keep up the good work. Your faith is more powerful than you think.
This month, we honor our mothers because they are special, valuable, and irreplaceable. Mothers, we appreciate you and thank God for you!
Where would we be without the love, prayers, and support of our mothers? I encourage you to take time on this special day to thank your mother for her faith—the faith that brings Heaven to earth, gives you a godly legacy, and changes your circumstances for the better.
We trust that you will enjoy this issue of The Word of Faith. We picked articles to help build your faith and encourage you in your walk with God. And as we celebrate Memorial Day, let’s remember those who gave their lives so we could live in freedom.
