Has a deceased person ever liked your post on social media?
My dad passed away in September of 2012. So imagine my excitement when in 2014, I saw the notification on Facebook. “Praise God!” I thought. “It’s a miracle!” Yes, my dad, who by that time had been dead for two years, liked my post!
But my excitement only lasted a few seconds before reality set in. Dad’s Facebook account was probably still signed in on his iPad, which was with my mom. Needless to say, she has no idea how Facebook works. I wonder how many people think my dad is alive right now after seeing that Facebook notification.
That wasn’t the first time my mother brought someone to life. She gave birth to me and three other characters!
My Mother the Missionary
Yesterday was Mom’s birthday, so today I want to focus on my mother and all the other mothers out there.
All my life, my mother has faithfully prayed for me. She’s probably praying for me right now! I still remember the conversation I had with her 15 years ago when I first came from London to Alabama. She hoped I would study theology like my father, but I told her no—hell no. I insisted there was no chance that was happening!
But she didn’t give up. She said she’d pray for me to change my mind. I replied, “Well, you’d better keep praying!”
Evidently, she did, because I’ve come so far since then. To be honest, I probably deserved to end up in jail or even dead, but instead, I’m now studying for ministry! And it’s all thanks to my mother’s prayers.
The Missionary in Your Life
A missionary is someone dedicated to a religious mission. On the 9th of June, my mother gave birth to hers: me. She’s been dedicated to that mission ever since, serving our family and showing us the love of Yeshua for as long as I can remember. I don’t know where I’d be without her sacrifices. I only hope I’ve proven myself worthy of them.
I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for that one special missionary: my mother. Chances are if you’re reading this, you have a missionary in your life too. Don’t forget to thank her!
I’d love to hear about your missionary. Please comment and share about your missionary. I know you have one, because you’re still here!
