God, Help Me Honor You Over My Children
It is incredible how we can lose sight of reality when it comes to parenting.
There is nothing else that can cause us so much joy and yet great pain.
Children are a gift from God, yet we can become consumed with the gift so much that we lose sight of what we are supposed to do with the gift.
We are not here on this earth to make our children happy. Our desire to do this can cause a major internal conflict as we try to please God and please our children.
If you are still raising your children then pray the following prayer with me. If you are like me, and your children are grown, then please pray this for all those moms out there that need our support and love:
Lord, help us to remember that we are here on this earth to raise our children to love You with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30). Give us wisdom to train them to honor You, their Lord, with their very lives. Amen.
In His Love,
