Let It Be...With God

Dear Saints and Sinners,

Mother's Day (as with Father's day) unleashes a variety of emotions. For those who have great relationships with their parents it is a wonderful thing. For those who have a problematic relationship with children or parents it can be a time of sorrow.

Jesus opened up the boundary of family on many occasions. He moved past the nuclear nest many of us are accustomed to calling family, and pointed toward a larger community parented by the Heavenly Creator. It does not matter if your earthly relationship with “Mom “ is good or bad. We all need the greater maternal love of God. One means by which we gain that love is from the teaching of Mary the mother of Jesus. In the first chapter of Luke, Mary has become aware that she is to be a full participant in the one and only virgin birth. The angel tells Mary ,"For nothing shall be impossible with God."  Then Mary said , "Here I am Lord ; let it be for me according to your word." (Luke 1:37,38).

Mother's Day is cause for reflection. Memories flow over us both good and bad. We recall when we were both maternally wounded and healed. The good news is, ".. nothing is impossible with God." There is hope for us all.

The most spiritual piece of music (for me ) that was ever written is the Beatles song ,"LET IT BE". What great lyrics run throughout, "….in my hour of darkness, there is still a light that shines on me speaking words of wisdom let it be....…mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom let it be…"   Paul McCartney and John Lennon both claimed that they did not have a specific Mary in mind. God will bring a Mary into your life. Mary is that one feminine voice of God that speaks with the grandest clarity a word of unconditional love, hope and healing. In the midst of whatever stirs and stresses you, "Let it be" with God.

Leonard Sweet says , "One virgin birth is not enough." May this Mother's Day be a time of the Christ Child's rebirth within you.

See you on Sunday.

Still in one peace,

David J. Jensen
