A Mother’s Touch – A Mother’s Day Story

Hoebel 2

The following is an excerpt from a biography on Hudson Taylor – James Hudson Taylor was a British Protestant Christian missionary to China and founder of the China Inland Mission. Taylor spent 51 years in China.

Hudson Taylor wrote about his mom when she met him at his ship to sail away…in 1854. I call it:

A mothers touch…

“My beloved, now sainted, mother, had come to see me off from Liverpool. Never shall I forget that day, nor how she Wentworth me into the little cabin that was to be my home for nearly six long months. With a mother’s loving hand she smoothed the little bed. She sat by myside, and joined me in the last hymn that we should sing together before the long parting. We knelt down, abd she prayed – the last mother’s prayer I was to hear before starting for China. Then notice was given that we must separate, and we had to say good-by, never expecting to see each other on earth again.

For my sake she restrained her feelings as much as possible. We parted; and she went on shore, giving me her blessing; I stood alone on deck, and she followed the ship as we moved toward the dock gates. As we passed through the gates, and the separation-really began, I can never forget the cry of anguish stung from my mother’s heart. It went through me like a knife. I never knew do fully, until then, daft “God so loved the world” meant. And I am quite sure that my precious mother learned more of the love of God to the perishing in that hour than in all her lifetime before.

Oh, how itjust grieve the heart of God when He sees His children indifferent to the needs of that wide world for which His beloved, His only begotten Son, died!”
~ J Hudson Taylor

There have been many times in my life when I’ve had to leave my sons and I didn’t know if I would ever see them again. The scripture that the Lord would bring to my mind may be found in the book of Isaiah.

All your sons will be taught by the Lord,
    and great will be their peace.
Isaiah 54:13

When we have the assurance of God that our children will be taken care of the Lord, we can rest carefully and confidently in Him.

A little About Marlene Marlene was raised in Sanford, Florida, the daughter of a 12th generation farmer and part Cherokee mother. Marlene first met Jesus at the tender age of six sitting in an orange tree in her backyard. This was when she first felt the Holy Spirit speaking to her about going to different nations and sharing the love and resurrection power of Jesus to others. She is mother to four sons, three grandchildren, and has many spiritual sons and daughters. Isaiah 54 is her life chapter. It was from that scripture God gave her two specific promises about her physical children, "All your children will be taught of the Lord and have great peace.”(Isaiah 54:13) and, “Your decendents will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.” (Isaiah 54:3) Marlene follows the leading of the Lord and goes wherever and by whatever means God guides and provides. She ministers in meetings, retreats, slums, villages, churches and alongside others who are also called to share the good news, pray for the sick and hurting. She has a heart to equip and train the latter day church helping them to prepare for the harvest that is ripe. She is a mother and father to those who are broken, hurting and orphaned. This could be across the street or across the world. It could be in the jailhouse, at someone’s penthouse or simply a backyard BBQ. Wherever she is, her desire is to minister bringing hope and healing. She has a heart for the lost, backslidden and broken and Her desire is to love and know the Lord fully and unconditionally always growing in His grace, wisdom, and mercy; becoming the Lord's perfect bride, without spot or wrinkle. God created us to be beautiful. She wants you to know His love and become God’s treasure in and on the earth, maturing and growing to help others find their identity and place and to finish the race well. God searches today for those who will make Him their single desire, who will say with the Psalmist and King David that, “the Lord is the portion of mine inheritance” (Psalm 16:5). They will be His special possession because, “the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto Himself, and Israel for His peculiar treasure” (Psalm 135:4). 850-661-6104 24/7 Prayer CinderellaReleased.Me cinderellareleased@gmail.com Webpage http://cinderellareleased.wixsite.com/cinderellareleased
