Jett looks like he is wondering what kind of family he’s been placed into.
A fun one.
We are all pretty hysterical. Or, at least, that’s the world we choose to believe we live in.
I love these children. “Well of course, you do. You’re their mother!” I worry about these children. I question my parenting. I get on my knees and seek God for their lives. I remind myself that if I could meet their every need, they wouldn’t need a Savior.
But, when I read scripture, I honestly forget about it applying to my children’s lives. Is that crazy or what?
“I will never leave you or forsake you…” (Heb. 13:5) That’s for my kids.
“I will supply your every need….” (Phil.4:19) That’s for them, too.
“My help comes from the Lord…” (Psalm 121.2) For them.
“You are my Portion….” (Psalm 119) Forrrrr them.
I could go on and on. And on. I can’t meet their every need. But God can. And, He wants to.
But, I can teach them to seek first His Kingdom, so all of those things can be given to them. I can teach them to put on the full of armor of God so they can stand up to anything. I can teach them to chase after God’s will more than their own. I can teach them to love God with all of their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
It’s in HIM and through HIM that they will have EVERYTHING they need. They will never lack. Because, THEY serve the Creator of the universe.

And if there were just one secret to successful parenting, that realization and the peace it brings is it. But, it’s easier to believe for yourself than foryour children. After all, it’s hard to imagine anyone, even God sometimes, as loving them as much as we do.
AND HE loves them more than we do! That is the part that is so hard to wrap your head around as a parent!
