This I Know

max

What I know.
Jesus loves me. This I know.
 
Jesus loved my mom, too. Enough to give her every opportunity to know Him. She was on death’s door in the summer of 2014, and God allowed her to bounce back and live 2 1/2 more years in a place where she could not escape hearing about Jesus and His love for her. 
 
Through that time I could see God wooing her. Through circumstances, through people who loved on her. She was strong, and mighty independent, and not very easy talk to about God. 
 
My sweet mom passed away a few months ago. Even in those unconscious last days, I am convinced that God was giving her every opportunity to know Him. Every distraction was stripped away. Every defense or pretense that she could do this “on her own” was gone. Like the “thief on the cross,” she was given a chance to cry out to Jesus, “I believe.”
 
What I don’t know.
What did my mom do?
 
What I know.

In the hard place of doubt, in the hard place of grief, in the hard place of evaluating did I do enough, say enough, love enough, what I know to be true is true. Jesus loves me. This I know.
