I took a short break from our action-packed and spirit-filled ministry this month, with Gigi. While on this short break, guess who would always come to my mind? My Nanay.
I remember the days when I would express my disgust over food prepared on the table, and Nanay would just quietly turn around and cook what I wanted to eat. The first time I came home drunk, I saw Nanay going to her room interceding for me. When I lost the heart to finish my college degree, Nanay would be there to the rescue and to "bribe" me--her way of encouraging me to finish school. Whatta a love, huh!
I'm very amazed with the kind of love a mother can give her wayward son. This, being my reference point, I am truly more amazed at how our Heavenly Father has poured out His love for us.
1 John 4:19 (NKJV)
“We love Him because He first loved us.”
Imagine that, God loving me first? Me, who is considered unlovable? Oh, His love still amazes me!
Loving you much,
