No matter what I did, or said, she has always been by my side. As the years have gone by, as I have grown into a woman,
our relationship changed from parent to friend. Sure, she is still my mom and can drive me crazy..but she has become my
best friend. Through thick and thin, she has my hand. Through each step, she will always be by my side.
I know I can trust her with burdens on my heart and a weight thats fallen on my shoulders.
She knows my desires..my hopes, my dreams, my aspirations..she has helped me become who I am today.
Through the struggles of addiction, she never gave up. She prayed and prayed for her fallen daughter..and God heard her cries.
He, like her, never left my side. From angels walking beside me as I wandered dark alleys, to covering me with their loving arms at night,protecting me, when I had no where to go.
From a young girl, always fighting..always telling her how much I would never want to be like her, never raise my children like her..
To now, as I watch her patiently with my children, lovingly showing Christ to anyone around her, always a soft word spoken, always ready to do our Fathers work, so unselfish..
I want to be just like my mother.
She gave me such words yesterday that stuck so close to me. When we were talking about the one man that eventually will be part of my life and my childrens..her words were so wise..so glorious..
Her words saying that when God brings that man into my life..he would be great, not just from what he does in life..but even more so because God picked him just for me.
Doesnt that make you sit back and smile to know that the special person in your life will be handpicked from God..that we just have to be patient and pray..and trust Him along the way.
Because, after all, if He protected me all those years of drugs and saving me from overdosing..from being killed on the streets..what more would He do to ensure that I would have the best person..the perfect match..for me.
Someone who understands and accepts my life..my past..my future..and will always bring me ever more closer to my Father. Never give up hope..always persevere..For God is going to make sure your taken care of in the little and the BIG things
Psalm 37:3-4 ESV
Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
