As Mother’s Day nears, you might be thinking of the best way to celebrate and thank your mom for all she’s done. She’s worn many hats over the years—from teacher and confidant to helper and friend, moms do it all.
But our moms’ kindness can show us far more than how much they love us. In Isaiah 66:13a, we see a comparison: “As a mother comforts her son, so I will comfort you.” Here, the way God comforts us is compared to how a mother would comfort her son or daughter.
God’s comfort and love is a big concept to grasp, but thinking of it in terms of an earthly mother helps to ground us in what that comfort looks like. Think of a time when you were scared or worried as a child—perhaps your mom offered you advice. Maybe she showed you something you were excited about to distract you. Or maybe she simply took you in her arms and held you close.
All these ways our moms comfort us point to ways God comforts us perfectly. He offers us wisdom for times of trouble through His word, reminds us of ways He’s provided for us before, and brings us
This Mother’s Day, consider a gift that will help Mom grow in her own faith walk, bring her close to Jesus and thank her for her selfless love.

Afraid of All the Things by Scarlet Hiltibidal
What does the gospel say about your fears? What does it say about the irrational ones, like sinkholes in the Target parking lot? How does it speak to the rational ones, like pet scan predictions? And does the gospel have a word for the fears you feel you'll have for life, like the possibility of losing the one you love most? Seeing life in light of the cross will help you avoid fear, overcome fear when you can’t avoid it, and live beyond fear when you don’t overcome it. You don't have to be afraid of all the things.
