Thank You Father For Answering My Prayer


My mom is in a nursing facility.  She has dementia and is confused at times. However, she remembers who her children are and for the most part her grandchildren. She is forgetful but able to care for herself. I was praying about my mother and where she is and asking God does she belong there. 

I received the writing below during the wee hours of the morning.

 Friends, this is only possible with God. HE is faithful and true. HE answers HIS children's prayers.

 My mother may be with me for but a short time only Father knows. BUT she will be with me.  

For all who are going through this same situation with a parent. Please read the below. Only Yah/God could be SO perfect. Amen.

 Leviticus 19:2-3

(2) Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy. (3) Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep my sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.
King James Version   Change Bible versions
Notice how powerfully God backs up the fifth commandmentwith the civil laws contained in Leviticus 19. In this context God names the fifth and fourth commandments in the same breath while implying the first.
The first thing required in this context is reverence (not honor) toward parents and Sabbath observance. These two are major pillars of good government and social well-being. Reverence is a profound, adoring, and awed respect—more than mere honor. It actually indicates "to tremble before," arising from our awareness of our weaknesses in the presence of the one we revere.
The Sabbath commandment influences social well-being in two ways. It first commands us to work six days. It takes work to make a community safe, clean, orderly, strong, peaceful, and prosperous. The other part of the commandment implies spiritual, moral, and ethical instruction, fellowshipping with others of like spiritual and moral mindset, and service to the community. That part of the commandment adds edifying qualities available nowhere else.

Amen what an honor to serve our parents. To walk in a way of forgiveness. They may have failed us but will we fail them when their hour of need arises? No. As believers in YAHWEY Who is full of love and forgiveness, we will serve and honor and care for the least of these.
