Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment. -Matthew 15:28 (NIV)
Motherhood is nothing less than a leap of faith. There is little more unknown than the blank slate of new life. Such precious clay requires special hands both soft and strong, a heart of gold and grease, a mind that is as fact-based as intuitive, and eyes that can see in every direction including the inside.
Yet even with careful shaping and grooming, training and tempering, a life’s journey is still in the hands of God and takes the faith of a mother to navigate a spirit through heaven’s gates. We thank God for a mother’s leap of love and her faith that leads us home.
