Honoring Mothers

9 May2018 SeedThoughts// Lynette Hagin

MOTHER'S DAY IN the U.S. has been an official holiday on the second Sunday in May since 1914. Certainly, it is fitting to set aside a day to honor the person who was responsible for us being on the earth. The Bible honors wives and mothers in Proverbs 31:10–30. I particularly like two of the verses in the New Living Translation. Verse 11 says, "Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life." Verse 28 states, "Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her."

Mothers are one of the most important individuals in our lives. A survey conducted among children said they would choose the love and approval of their mother over money, fame, or possessions.

When asked who the most influential person in his life was, Winston Churchill replied, "My mother."

George Washington said, "My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her."

Motherhood is an awesome responsibility. Unfortunately, there aren't any courses you can take that will prepare you for the joys, challenges, heartache, and laughter that motherhood brings. God created the father as the head of the home. However, the mother is the heart of the home.

A child was asked, "Where is your home?" The little fellow replied, "Where Mother is." As keeper of the home, God has endowed mothers with special traits that qualify her for strenuous and honorable tasks.

Facing Suicide

4 April2019 Facing Suicide Feature-SmallPeople are suffering from broken hearts.

Even when surrounded by godly people, it is possible to reach a place with so much pressure and pain that you cannot help yourself—you need the Body of Christ to reach out. Instead of casual advice like, "Believe God," you need someone gracious enough to put an arm around you and say, "We're standing with you."

Let's minister lovingly to hurting people—especially during times of trial, weariness, or grief. We need to realize that insensitive words minister to no one. Such words do not bring life. Let's pray for and strengthen one another with compassion and fulfill Jesus' commission to heal the brokenhearted!

—Kenneth W. Hagin

Having a loved one commit suicide is extremely difficult. Surviving family members deal with intensified forms of normal grief (guilt, anger, confusion, and so forth) and frequently feel isolated from others. They may feel shame about the manner of their loved one's death and not know how to explain it.

Those who would normally offer support to the family may also feel uncomfortable. They may keep their distance due to their awkward feelings and difficulty of not knowing what to say.

Mighty Men–A Call to Arms Men's Conference 2018

Mens Conference StoryConference Review

Hundreds of men gathered on the Rhema USA campus on November 1–3 to hone their faith, be built up in the Lord, and live above the attacks of the devil. Speakers at CTA aimed to strengthen, challenge, and encourage those who attended. The men left refreshed and better equipped to enforce the victory Jesus has already won for them.

Be sure to join us next year for A Call to Arms 2019, to be held November 7-9, 2019.

Highlights from the conference:

"It's time for the world to see godly men who dream big, accomplish the impossible, resist evil, and rise in victory." // Kenneth W. Hagin

"Sometimes it doesn't feel like we're triumphing. But God's Word says we always triumph in Christ (2 Cor. 2:14). The key word is always." // Craig W. Hagin

"God wants you to win. But to please Him, you have to stand in faith. Whatever you're going through wouldn't be in your life if you couldn't whip it!" // Roy Coggeshall

"When Scripture says nothing is impossible, it also includes getting your mind under control and not allowing it to control you." // Mike Cameneti

"When I lost my arm, I thought my life was over. I was ready to give up and dealt with suicidal thoughts for a long time. But God can use your pain and turn it into your purpose." // Jeff Bardel

"It's not enough to only get the vision from God; you have a responsibility to see it through to completion. You will never rise up in your man status until you do what God called you to do." // Earl Glisson
