A Daily Devotion for Monday, May 3


Isaiah 66: 10-13


verse 13: “As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”


I have been thinking a lot about my mom recently. The anniversary of her death, and then her birthday and Mother’s Day in rapid succession make this an emotional time of year for me. These verses ask me to think of God’s love like a mother’s love for her infant child. An infant cannot make it on their own. Someone needs to look over them and keep them safe. In the most important way, this need never goes away. We need to know God will love us unconditionally and forever. If our mothers were here with us today, they would love us more than the day we were born! God loves me as much as my mom loved me! That is as much as I can imagine. I am told he loves me more.

Holy Father, your love is greater, larger, more eternal than anything I can fathom. Like a mother, you have taken care of me and loved me unconditionally. You have given me life. I am so very thankful. Amen


Becky, transforming

Isaiah 66: 10-13


As another annual Mother's Day approaches the celebration touches our deepest emotions about what real love is and should be.

Not only does God love like our mother, but we experience God's love from our mother's love. A mother’s love for her children is one of the strongest and most mysterious forces in the world. It carries her through the pain o…

As Mother's Day approaches next Sunday I think of my mother who died several years ago. There is not a day that goes by I do not think of her and miss her always. A mother's love never dies as long as we carry it in our hearts. God's love for us is like a mother's love as well. Sacrifices were made by our mothers so that we could grow into caring people, thinking of others as we go through life.

Isaiah 66:13 - “As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”


Next Sunday is Mother’s Day. My own mother died last March, and like Becky, the close timing of that anniversary and the celebration of mothers brings a sense of melancholy. I know we all extend our prayers to Pastor Lee and his mother as they celebrate her 80th birthday during his time in Korea. A mother’s love is as close as anything on earth to God’s love for us. Even those who have lost or never experienced a mother’s love can take heart and have hope. They are loved with an everlasting love.


Prayer - God of love, I…
