I have been called to a job I am not capable of doing alone. I know it and am reminded of it daily. At night when I lay my babies in bed, there is a nudging feeling that I messed up that day. Did I yell too much? Did I spend enough time with them? Did I spend too much time on the computer? I see character flaws in them and wonder if we can ever parent them out of them.
Lord, I will take these daily thoughts and questions as Your reminder to trust and depend on You. This season of parenting is my chance to see what You can do with my hands and words when I am submitted and connected to You.
As a wife and mother I love, serve, and minister to my husband and children desperately everyday. Lord, so many times I run dry. I am so grateful that I can come to You every moment and always find unconditional love.
When the unknowns of the future disturb and scare me, You provide refuge in Your arms. When the circumstances of life get hard, You comfort me. When I get weary and have no more to give, You restore me.
I have been called to a job that I am not capable of doing alone. I thank You that I don’t have to!
