Faith Makes All Things Possible

Faith Makes All Things PossibleThis past week was my Mom’s birthday. It’s always a hard day for me because instead of having a party, we go to the cemetery and leave buttercups on her grave.

Thankfully, I know she is in heaven and I know she is happier than she has ever been.

This month, I’m focusing on faith. I can’t talk about faith and not think about my Mom and her unwavering faith for Jesus. I have shared this before but I thought it was worth repeating.

When Mom was told she had terminal cancer, she knew her time on earth was almost over.

She had spent her whole life following Jesus and now in the midst of this news, what would she choose to believe?

Her words still ring loudly today. “I’ve spent my whole life teaching you (her children) how to live for Christ, and now I’m going to teach you how to die for Christ.” And she did!

Mom was a faithful servant. Even when she was told she had terminal cancer, she remained faithful. She died knowing that her reward was “heaven”.

I want to be found faithful too. I don’t want to grow weary. Trials are going to come. Heartache is a part of this life. But a reward awaits!!

This picture was taken before I started blogging and using my good camera but it’s one of my favorites of my Mom and daughter. We had such fun times!

  1. What a beautiful photo Cyndi! Your mom’s faith sounds a lot like the faith Joey Feek had. I pray that, we too, will have that kind of faith until we take our final breath on earth.

    God bless you!

  2. Beautiful picture, right now I’m trying to make a decision about a career change, but my dilemma is making a decision that effects others and myself financially. My faith is rocked in this area after growing up wondering where your next meal is coming from. Reading all the passages I can find on faith any other suggestions.

    1. Bernadette,
      I am seriously praying for you. . . . When all his resources were exhausted and Moses was brought to the barren, wind-swept, sun-scorched, horizons of emptiness ―then God came and told him what to do. . . In my life, I have found that there is only one thing worse than not getting what I want and that is getting what I want. Maybe, re-read the book of Hebrews. Also, the “Dynamics of Faith”, –by Dr. Paul Tillich, probably the most influential theologian of the twentieth century. As someone said about it and it is totally true “That book has more good ideas in it than clam chowder has calories.” It’s packed into every page, every line.

  3. Oh my goodness Cyndi…..the missing of your momma is so deep because the love of your momma was so huge.
    Your mother sounds like one lovely, precious witness for our Savior.
    You were blessed and you profoundly know it.
    I thank you for sharing what she said when she learned of her diagnosis……I volunteer with hospice and those are beautiful words to give hope.
    God bless your day and thank you again.

  4. What a Beautiful verse you have shared today. May the light of Christ shine in us all. Have a fabulous Sunday

  5. I love your blog as much for the spiritual lift as for your adorable fashion. I’ve been battling stage IV cancer for the past year. My husband was also diagnosed with cancer in December and we hope and pray, like your precious mother, that our life will be a legacy of the things that matter most to us- our family and our faith in Christ. I know God loves all of his children and wants us all home and will provide us with life experiences that will prepare our hearts to be with him. The atonement and resurrection of our Savior is such a gift. We are so blessed!!

  6. Your Mom is beautiful inside and out-just like her daughters and granddaughter. Thanks to Jesus we will see our special moms in Heaven and spend eternity together.

  7. Beautiful tribute to your mom, Cyndi. I miss my mom as well but am grateful that she and my dad are together in heaven. You look so much like your mom, as I do mine. What a gift!

  8. Such a sweet picture of your mama and daughter! And such a blessing to have been raised by a Godly woman. I too lost my mother far too soon, also to cancer. She, like your mom had tremendous faith. I am often in awe at the grace she had during her last days.
    Knowing our moms are in heaven doesn’t make us miss them less – but boy he excitement in my heart knowing I will be with mine in our forever home.
    Hugs from Knoxville!

  9. Praying for you guys. Remembering is bittersweet. It’s so comforting to have the memories but it makes you miss them so much. Sending hugs and prayers.Love both you and Traci’s blogs!

  10. Beautiful tribute to your mom Cyndi. She would be so proud of you and Traci… You both share your love for Jesus and have raised your children to do so too. March is the anniversary of my fathers passing as well. So happy he’s with Jesus. It’s a great reminder to live without regrets and to live in peace with one another. Beautiful song too. Praying for you 😉

  11. Beautiful photo Cyndi of your mom and daughter. Your mom was a living witness for Christ right until the end. I pray I would be this too . My dad’s birthday was last month – he’s been gone 22 years now and my moms is this month as well as her anniversary date. I miss them very much but am so glad I’ll see them again one day when God calls me home. The ultimate blessing.

  12. Beautiful photo to have. You certainly resemble your mother. 🙂 It is indeed an awesome blessing to have had such a loving mother who set such a wonderful example. I’d say you’re a pretty good example yourself–I’m sure your family would agree.

  13. What a sweet tribute to your godly mother. From what I see, you are as beautiful as her on the inside as on the outside. Thank you for your posts, they are such a blessing!

  14. Beautiful tribute to your mom. My mother’s birthday is this month as well..the 21st. I miss her alot but I know she is happy and well in heaven singing amazing grace..her favorite hymn!! Bless you and thank you for the example that you show to your readers everyday!!

  16. A very touching tribute to your Mother. I lost my Dad 14 years ago to heart surgery. He was very faithful. I know he is in Heaven watching his family. You look very much like your Mom. God Bless.

  17. Hugs! Thank you for sharing your heart and your beautiful tribute and picture! Jesus never leaves nor forsakes us. Blessings dear one!

  18. My Mom turned 89 in Feb. while she’s in good health I know the day is coming that she will not be with me anymore. I think about that day and my heart aches. She has been my rock my whole life. I know the Lord will give me strength but I also know the loss will shake my world.
    Prayers for you as you deal with the loss of yours…

  19. Hi Sweet Cyndi,

    In every story you have written about your Mama and in every picture I’ve seen of her, she always seems more radiant than the time before. To me, that is absolute proof she is in the presence of our Savior and growing in glory.

  20. What a beautiful tribute to your mom. My mom has been gone for almost two years, and I still miss her so much it hurts. My mom set a Godly example for her three daughters and for her eight grandchildren. She looked to Jesus as the Author and Finisher of her faith, and I know that she is in His presence now, alongside my precious daddy. Thank you for sharing your heart about your sweet mom. I know how you must miss her. She was a beautiful lady, and you look so much like her. Thank you for ministering to all of us every day.
    May God bless you and your family.

  21. What a lovely picture. Thank you for sharing about your Mom. We never know what people are going through. I am sorry for your loss.

  22. Perfectly timed! My dear grandmother passed away ten years ago this week, March 1 and the sting still remains. I miss her dearly and now that I am married with a super great kiddo it’s bittersweet as I’d love for her to know them. I too am grateful for her faith and knowing that we will be reunited in heaven and she’s watching us from above. Faith is truly a gift and I’m so grateful for God’s love and his son. May your grief be a bit lighter this week and thanks for sharing. They truly are gone but not forgotten!

  23. “I’ve spent my whole life teaching you (her children) how to live for Christ, and now I’m going to teach you how to die for Christ.” And she did!

    Wow Cyndi, —tears. . . . more tears. . . . I don’t even know what to say. No wonder your heart is so beautiful. . . . How amazing must Christ be if just His reflection in your mom was that absolutely wonderful? It is alomst beyond my comfort-laden, abundance-filled, self-improvement-addicted mind and the culture I live in to even understand that depth of heart-beauty. Thank you Cyndi, incredible reminder to stay grounded in Christ. You say so much, so simply. It is amazing.
