Mourn Early, Love Fully | Facing Your Blitz Weekly Video Devotion
Mother’s Day is a day to take nothing for granted, especially your parents. Do better than a card one day a year…grow the connection and conversation.
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.” Exodus 20:12, ESV “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4, ESV
If your mom or dad, grandmother or grandfather, is still alive…choose to imagine that they are gone. What would you miss?
What do you want to express or experience with them before they pass? A list of things to thank them for? A couple things to apologize for? A few stories of their life that you’d like to hear.
Focus on the treasure in your parent or grandparent. Imagine them gone and mourn that loss.
Pray for your relationship to be closer and enriching for the final chapter of their lives.
Choose to steward their remaining days by appreciating, affirming, listening to and caring for them.
