Happy Mother's Day!

Post from Saturday Morning.

Post from Friday afternoon.

Post from tent set up in Bristol, Virginia.

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers. May God bless you today with strength and health on the day set aside to honor you. If you are a mother that fears God and serves Him, then you are worthy of double honor. May God bless you abundantly in every area of your life.

Many ladies in our great country have stepped up to mother me through the years. They have fed me, clothed me and nurtured me spiritually too. They have prayed for me and carried many burdens for me. I am grateful to every one of them. But none of them could ever take the place of my dear mother, Martha Boggs.

I believe very strongly that one of the reasons I am saved and preaching today is because God heard the prayers of my mother. I doubt that she prayed that God would put me into the ministry and send me across the USA and even to other countries to preach and to sing. If she prayed for that, I did not hear it and she never told me. But she did pray that I would be a Christian. She wanted me to be genuinely saved and dedicated to God.

She prayed faithfully beside of my bed every night as I was growing up. I can not tell you the nights I went to sleep listening to her praying for me and for my brothers and for my sister. I did not think much of it then. But I realize the eternal value of it now. It was a tremendously blessing to have a mother willing to kneel and pray  fervently to God for me.

Praise God for a praying mother!

Thank you Mother Dear for praying for your children. Thank you especially for praying for me. God has heard your prayers and answered them far beyond your imagination and certainly beyond my imagination. Praise God that He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think. I love you Mother Dear. Have a very Happy Mother's Day.

Another important mother in my life is Betty Morgan, the mother of my Kelly Jo. Betty was saved along with my father in law in a tent revival about 40 years ago. That event changed the course of life of their oldest child and for me as well. I praise God for my mother in law too. Have a great day, Gran!

God bless you mothers.
