“Mom’s Favorite Scripture”

My mother was a saint. She raised five children with an alcoholic husband, and never missed a day of church. Even when the snow was piled high, or when there was no food on the table, she never doubted God. She always taught me that God gives little battles, because He is preparing us for the big ones!

This was one of her favorite scriptures… “If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?” (Jeremiah 12:5) You may not understand King James’ language, but it simply means that if you cannot stand and trust God when you are facing a small battle, how will you be able to stand when the things get worse? Today, if you are going through something, trust the Lord to bring you out. You “may” be just running with the “footmen,” because the “the big one is coming!” Stand strong! God is always on your side!!! Mom was never wrong.
