But Do You Love Mom?   5 comments

This morning as I was spending quiet time reflecting on my current circumstances and trying to reconcile the good of it all, I thought of the scripture verse that reads, “All things work together for good for those who love God…” Romans 8:28 That led me to wonder about those who barely believe there is a God at all. I then recalled the following wonderful example of the conversation between the twins in the womb discussing the existence of Mom.

~~~“Mother???? But you don’t believe in a mother, do you? Where is she?”

“She is here, all around us. We are and we live within her and through her. Without her we couldn’t exist at all!”

“Nonsense! I’ve never sensed a mother, consequently she doesn’t exist.”

“Yes, sometimes, when we are very quiet you can hear her sing, or feel how she caresses our world.” ~~~

There is still a bridge to cross after believing in God … to get to the “All things work together for good for those who LOVE God” part.

My experience has been that after I first believed, as an adult, and consciously admitted my faith (belief) in God; I experienced God’s love to enter and fill my heart. In time I was able to acknowledge the Spiritual love and goodness of God in all things – Then, and only then, could I begin my humble journey of not just believing in God but loving God in return, with gratitude for everything in my life, including the pain and hardship, and for the life which is to come.

My faith is believing that “All things do work together for good for those who love God,” because I trust that God … my Mom-God knows what She is doing …

The conversation between the twins ends like this:

“You are crazy! Nobody ever came back after birth. Life is over with birth. That’s it.”

“I admit that nobody knows what life after birth will look like. But I do know that we will see our mother then, and that she will take care of us.”
