I read somewhere on social media saying that mothers who are young write about parenting techniques and mothers who have grown children write books on prayer.
This got me thinking that I don’t have any tried and true techniques myself, as a mother of five…all I know is I try to build fellowship and connection with my kids and do things in love, out of love, with my love so my children would experience and share love. And even with all that: I want to be a praying young mom and a praying old mom and praying woman… There is no one formula to perfection… and there is no such thing as perfect; on this side of eternity we’re ever-reaching.
Today was a hard day. My kids were experiencing a ton of emotions… a range of emotions and they didn’t know how to safely express them.
Yesterday, I prayed and I wanted to be like Solomon in asking for wisdom. I have five kids and I still don’t know how to do this this parenting gig… and to add to it all, I brought up my elderly parents for a couple of weeks. Oh Lord, have mercy.
So… yesterday, today and my onward prayer is …. “God, I ask for wisdom… I ask or understanding. I need help. I can’t do this…Amen”
How about you, friend. How are you feeling? What or whom are you praying for these days?
I’m praying for you and with you: May God grant us his mercy and grace. May God grant us his peace, wisdom and understanding. Amen
