Scripture of the Day - May 13, 2012

John 19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
John 19:27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

It's amazing that as Jesus hung on the cross in excruciating agony, with the weight of the world on His shoulders, He considered the future of His mother. He knew she would have to be taken care of and he made sure she would be in good hands.
For Mary, being the mother of Jesus was bittersweet. The agony of watching life ebb out of her son as He hung on the cross far outweighed the joys of raising Him as a child. Her heart was heavy like lead. Sorrow swept over her like a flood, yet the deepest love carried her through. She dared not fall apart, she could not break in front of Him as he suffered so. She held strong for Him. Her love for Him and the love she felt from Him held her together.
The love of a mother comes second only to the love of God. And love will carry you through anything. Love conquers all.
