Mother's Day testimony
I just want to wish all the mothers a Happy Mothers day. Thank God for godly mothers.
I am thankful for my mother, and the role she played in bringing me to the Lord. When I was a child, my parents raised me in the ways of the Lord and I loved the Lord, but when I became a teenager, I began to drift away from the Lord. I started hanging out with the wrong people and progressively began doing worse and worse things. I will not go into detail, but I I got so bad that many thought there was no hope left for me. One of the people who never gave up on me was mother. She never stopped praying for me during the years between about 1978 to 1988, when I was drifting farther and farther from the Lord, into alcohol, drugs, and even a fascination with evil. She was always a good example to me, an example of unconditional love for me and faithfullness to the Lord.
On August of 1988, a miraculous change in my life occurred. The Holy Spirit touched my heart and I came back to Jesus! Can you guess what was the first thing I did after I came back to Jesus? I went and told mother. She was so happy, and tears came to her eyes. She prayed with me, and got to go to bed that night with the knowledge that her son was safe in Jesus now.
A few years later, a southern Gospel singer came to our church and sang a song. When I heard the song it seemed as if someone had written a song about my mother and me. I have included the lyrics below.
Thank you, Godly mothers. Keep up the good work, and no matter how dark things may begin to look for your children, ( as they sometimes do), don't lose heart and keep praying and do what you do best, an example of the love of God. Blessings.
Hello Mama- ( I don't know who wrote this.)
Hello Mama, I just called to tell you
all the prayers you prayed for me were not in vain
something happened tonight while travelling down a country road.
I thought that you should be the first to know that I am not the same
All those dreary days are over now. The sleepless nights are past.
All those prayers that you have prayed so long, theyre answered now at last.
I'm not the boy I used to be, now Mama, you can sleep tonight.
For I've found Jesus and everythings alright.
I remember every night before I'd go to sleep
I'd hear you pray for my soul to keep, that I might find the Way.
Now Mama, I'm so thankful that through the days and wasted years.
those prayers kept ringing in my ears every night and day.

2 Corinthians 7:1- Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
