Blessed and Praised

“Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭31:28‬ ‭KJV‬‬

I know this is a day late but I just want to say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the mothers out there. I hope y’all and enjoyed your special day!

This verse was mentioned in church last night and as I sat there , it dawned on me that I’m in the position to fulfill both parts of the verse! I’m blessed to be a child of an awesome mother and I can definitely praise my wife as she is a wonderful mother to our girls!

I am thankful for my mom. She did so much for myself and my brother and sister while we were growing up. Even though we are grown and out of the house, I know that she still wants the best for us and would do anything for us if she could. I’m blessed now because of everything my mother did for me when I was a child.

For my wife, I have nothing but praise for her. She is an amazing mother to our girls! She will put their needs and wants before her’s! My wife will sacrifice everything to make sure her family has enough. I can’t say enough to praise her, but I know I’m so thankful for her and everything she does for us!

To all the mothers out there, thank you for all that you do. You play a part in more than just your own children’s lives. There are mom’s out there who cared about me throughout certain times in my life and they played a huge part in where I am today and for that I’m thankful!

Happy Mother’s Day! (Even if it’s a day late)

Enjoying the Heat Wave

Man, it’s hot! I feel like the heat index for the last month has been over 100 degrees here in the south. I hate the heat! I feel that this year, here in Mississippi, we skipped spring. The weather went from really cold to really hot, really fast!

I was thinking the other day about why I should be enjoying this heat instead of complaining about it. My first thought was, no matter how hot it gets here on earth, I never have to experience the heat of Hell. Yes, I believe in Hell. Yes, I believe it is a real place. Yes, I believe that without Christ as your Saviour you will spend eternity in Hell.

I am thankful that I never have to experience that everlasting heat wave that is called Hell. I never have to wonder what it is like to be so hot without the option to cool down or drink some refreshing water. I never have to experience the lake of fire! I will go ahead and enjoy this heat of summer because it is nothing like Hell!

If you are lost without Christ, now is the time of salvation. You can accept Christ today as your Saviour. Just realize you are a sinner, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Romans 3:23. Realize the punishment for your sins is death in Hell and realize that Christ died and rose again to pay for your sins, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23 Once you realize you are a sinner and that you need a Saviour, call on the Lord and ask Him to save you, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For whosover shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:9,13 Salvation is a personal choice, it is between you and the Lord. I can’t make it for you, neither can anyone else. Accept Christ today to miss out on the heat wave of Hell!!
