Sometimes I feel like I have NO IDEA what I’m doing as a parent.
I wonder if I’m doing too much of this or not enough of that.
Was I too firm here or too lenient there?
Are they eating the right foods?
Are they learning the right lessons?
Am I doing anything right?
Ahhhh! The list is maddening & it goes on an on.
In the midst of the crazy thoughts swirling around in my head, God allows me to witness precious sights like this.
My toddler initiated reading time with her baby sis, & read every book she could find for her. To witness such a simple, yet endearing sight was like the Lord telling me that I’m doing just fine.
As the Holy Spirit begins to flood my mind with God’s precious promises, I am reassured. My girls will be alright because even with my minor (and major) mess-ups, He is right there.
On a day that I’ve been struggling with some things spiritually (Satan, you are defeated!!!), this sweet, sweet sight was like manna to this mama’s soul. It opened my eyes to the beauty of all the simple, yet marvelous things going on around me, and helped me to soak in the warm embrace of my Father’s unfailing love.
Thank you, thank you Lord.
Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’. Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)
