A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, April 14

1John 3:1-7

verse 1: How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!

Sometimes I lose sight of God’s love for me, because I am not feeling it. That is so wrong. Just the fact I am walking on this earth is a miracle of love. But beyond that to the everyday, God is as much “in touch” with me as I am able and willing to seek Him. Answered prayers are gifts from God, showing me clearly He is listening. I think of the last time I saw my mom before she died (three years ago last week). I stopped by her room on the way to the airport to fly home. It was early in the morning, and I usually would not stop because she tended to sleep a little later. And, it was hard for me to see her so changed, thin, blind and unhearing, unable to respond to me. I often skipped that last quick visit. But that day I stopped. And her eyes were wide open, and she was being fed. I could see my mom in those eyes, that face and body, and I was filled with God’s love for her. I knew He was keeping her company, as I had prayed he would do. I knew she had peace, and I had peace, too. She died about a week later. ❤️

God, I love you for being with my Mom. I know you would do this without my asking, but you have shown me it is worthwhile to ask. Thank you, Lord. Amen

Becky, transforming
