Lessons Learned from My Sickness Part 23: A Mother’s Love and Wisdom
By Pastor Ronny Luces
My 81-year-old mother came to visit me today (Saturday, March 14, 2015). I want to dedicate this lesson to her by recalling her text message the day she knew about my sickness.
She said, “Noy, we should be glad that this trial has visited our family, and you were chosen to be its bearer. For it means that we were made partakers of this suffering. This trial will enable us to be stronger in our faith, and we will be closer to each other and with the Lord”.
She then sang a battle hymn to inspire and to encourage me to face my sickness.
I am really thankful to God for giving me a very prayerful, full of godly wisdom and faithful mother.
You see, she was also in great pain while relaying those words to me. She suffered a leg fracture rendering her immobile since November last year.
In fact, when she came to visit me today, she was physically carried in a wheelchair by my brother.
But that inconvenience didn’t prevent her from coming over to show me her love and to express her affection.
I am more inspired to face the challenges posed by my sickness because I am being supported by the prayers of my mother.
