Called to parenting

Exodus 4:10-12:  "Moses said to the Lord, ‘O Lord, I have never been eloquent…The Lord said to him…Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say'" (NIV).

Sometimes we don't understand why God calls us to a certain task or ministry. Other people may seem far more qualified to meet the challenge that faces us.  And yet, over and over again in the Bible, God uses unlikely people to accomplish His goals. 

There is no greater calling from God than parenting. When you feel inadequate for the task, realize you are putting your trust in the wrong person!  Strive to be an excellent parent, but recognize that God is not dependent upon your knowledge or expertise to bring about His results.

When you feel overwhelmed, surrender control and trust God.  He will provide.
