Ironically, mom had all the actions down pat for how to serve as a faithful Christian woman. She loved, honored, served, obeyed, surrendered, but it was all for nothing because she wasn't living for GOD, she was living to avoid the punishiments of GOD. As if our Heavenly Father is one to spank us.... tisk tisk tisk! But the truth is, that is what religion does to people. SCARES us into submission.
Praise God for all of His faithfulness. He never forgets one His children. He never gives up on them. Mom escaped the hold that religion had on her. God replaced that fear with confidence. The skepticism with optimism. The doubts with facts. The emptiness with fullness. The lonliness with companionship. The questions with answers and the jelly to her peanut butter!
James 2:17 reminds us that "Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead."
Mom is active!!!!!!!!
