Chuck Norris Reveals His Mom Prayed For Him When He Nearly Lost His Soul To Hollywood.

A little boy & his mother were crossing a river.

The mother said, “Hold my hand, son.”

The boy said, “No mom, You hold my hand.” She said, “Why, What’s the difference?”

The boy said, “Mom, If I hold your hand & something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand….I know for sure, you will never let my hand go.”

This is how this little boy expressed his trust, his faith & love for his mom. Now let’s see what Chuck Norris, the great martial artist & actor feels about his mom!

Wilma Norris Knight, the proud mother of Chuck Norris, received a loving tribute full of praise for her, his dear mother. It was from her famous son. It was a write-up soaked with affection & gratitude for his mother.

Direct from his heart, Chuck talked about the problems his mother Wilma had to face when he was a kid.

At the age of eight, she lived with a rare disease for two long years and was confined to a children’s hospital. At that time, Wilma became a ward of the state and she could not live with her family, who lived in indigence.

Wilma worked. She did the job of picking cotton. All this she did to help her family to overcome the financial crisis that hit their family during The Great Depression. This is the manner in which she took care of her family upon leaving the hospital after the two year period.

Life could have changed for better. It could have become easier, when she met Chuck’s father. One may think marriage can bring a change. It can bring happiness, but it did not happen in Wilma’s life. She got married at the age of 16. Was there a change in her life- cycle? Was there happiness?

No! Her husband abandoned her after some time. Now she was left all alone with three growing boys. In some ways no doubt life did get better for Wilma but she was all alone with three boys & the future had more suffering. Life was more traumatic for her.

Chuck wrote, “Mom has been an example of perseverance and faith her whole life.”

“She’s also endured the deaths of her two husbands, a stepson, two grandchildren, and my younger brother Wieland in the Vietnam War. She’s had cancer repeatedly and has gone through roughly 30 different surgeries for a host of issues – and yet she’s still here to tell about it.”

“As believers, we know that suffering is a part of the Christian’s journey. Suffering may result from our own sinful doings, but the world itself will send suffering our way too. Jesus informed us of as much.” (John 16:33).

Prayer perhaps is the best method of getting through the suffering. Chuck Norris’ mom was well aware of it. She prayed & spent more time sincerely in this divine activity.

“My mother has prayed for me all my life, through thick and thin.”

“When I was born, I almost died from complications. When nearly losing my soul to Hollywood a few decades ago, she was back home praying for my success and salvation. She even prayed for me to find a woman to change my life, and it worked.”

Chuck also wrote about the other woman in his life who deserves praise as well.

He said “I equally celebrate my wife, Gena, during this Mother’s Day week. Gena helps me run all my enterprises and is CEO of our new artesian bottled water company, CFORCE. But most of all she is the mother of our twins, the love of my life, and my best friend.”

“I am overwhelmed with gratitude to God for these two incredible women’s influence in my life.”

“I love you, Mom! Happy 100th birthday! And Happy Mother’s Day, Mom and Gena! I thank God for you both every day! And I thank you for helping God to make me all I can and should be.”

Amazing indeed– to see a man recognize the greatness of the women in his life and express his purest love for them. God wants us that we honor our parents, and Chuck Norris is doing just the same through this write up, wherein he pays his excellent tribute for his mom.

“Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.”

Exodus 20:12

Don’t you think, the bond between mother & son is a special one? Don’t you think it remains unchanged by time or distance?

Guys, Just think it over!
