Tired little ones. Bad Attitudes. Quarreling. Lack of working hard.I don't want to give up. I still want to embrace today and squeeze all I can out of it. I desire to see the Lord's hand at work. I desire for the atmosphere of our home to change.
But it is in these times that I must remember God's promise in scripture.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galations 6:9
I have a goal in my parenting. I have vision for this season so that even when we are in the midst of a hard day I know what I am working for.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. 3 John 1:4
O Father, I pray that your grace would be upon us. Give us strength to change our hearts.
And so I utter prayers, I whisper into ears encouraging them to be diligent, I remind them to walk in peace and to guard their mouth all the while reminding myself not to grow weary because I want to see my children walk in truth.
