Struggles bring frustration and a variety of emotions, but they also offer opportunity to lean on God. May parenting be our reminder of our intense need for the love, grace, and forgiveness of Jesus.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might.” (Ephesians 6:10 WEB)
Action Step: Thank the Lord for His faithfulness and love. Thank Him that His perfect love casts out all fear. Ask God to show you opportunity to trust Him and believe His truth.
May you and I be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might as we parent today, tomorrow, and beyond. Be encouraged, friend, as you sow seeds of faith in your children that will bear fruit in due time.
