What is it about a mother that makes her do things for her children all the time? Even when no one knows—especially her children.

I believe it’s the God-gene in her—not in a scientific, physiological sense, but in a spiritual sense. God’s fingerprint is on His creation. He breathed the breath of life into Adam from whom He created a woman. Adam named her Eve because she was the mother of all living.

Of course it’s a God thing.

Who else would go through pain for our deliverance? Who else would give without thanks and then give again anyway? Who else would say, “I’ll take care of you,” and then do it even when we’re not looking?

There’s a little crossover between Mom-care and God-care. Psalm 121:7 tells me the Lord will keep me safe and watch over me, and He does it all the time. Even when I don’t know it.

The day an auto-service technician called me out to my car to show me the split rubber on the inside of the left front tire, I remembered that verse. The left front tire is the closest to oncoming traffic. All the other tires on my car were in good shape. There was an imbalance somewhere, a misalignment that I didn’t know about.

The fix was easy, but the damages could have been horrific.

This was not the first time the Lord had watched over my life, nor will it be the last. I often see Mom-care in His protection, just as I saw God-care in the mother I remember.

“Love Jesus more than anyone, even me,” she often said.

That’s the best advice I’ve ever been given.

Thanks, Mom.

Thank You, Lord, for a mother who loved You and taught me about Your faithfulness. Help me teach it to my own children and to others with whom I come in contact. Amen.

“The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in
from this time forth, and even forevermore.”
Psalm 121:8

    I loved this article. I am sending it to my Son. I thought that when he was all grown with a wife and my grandkids that I’d stop trying to help him. Now I know why it hasn’t worked!

    Have a great day.
