Sometimes we can get so overwhelmed with all the books, information available on the internet, and advice from well-meaning friends and family on the different aspects of parenting, that we don’t know what to do!!
Whether you are struggling with behavior problems with your children or the methods of potty training, YOU know your child and the situation better than anyone else and GOD will lead YOU.
Just close the books!
Quit searching the internet!
Quit quizzing others!
and ASK GOD!
Search HIS WORD for direction!
We all need encouragement from others, but don’t substitute the fellowship with other moms for time alone with God. In order to know what to do for your little one, you must spend time with the One who created you both. He is ready and waiting to help. If you let Him help, motherhood can draw you closer to God than you have ever been!
I am convinced that there is nothing a child goes through or a situation we go through that can not be handled with prayer and the Word. An old preacher once said, “God works in the lives of children through their parents; and parents work in the lives of their children through prayer.” It always goes back to God. Pray about EVERYTHING, no matter how big or small.
My favorite verse as a mom has always been 1 Thessalonians 5:24 “Faithful is who calls you, who will also do it.” He has called us to the awesome and sometimes overwhelming responsibility and privilege of parenting – He has PROMISED to do it through us!!
