It is easy to get bogged down in the daily whirlwind of parenting.
It’s easy to become frustrated when our children are not behaving how we would desire for them to behave.
It’s easy to focus on the things they are doing wrong rather than focus on the qualities that make them the unique and special individuals they are.
God constantly taps me on the shoulder to remind me to cherish our children no matter what phase they are going through. To nurture them and love them and show them a glimpse of the Father’s love. My prayer today is that you also may be reminded of God’s incredible love for us.
If you’re a parent- I encourage you to go out of your way this week to show your kids (even more than you usually do!) how great God’s love is.
In 1 John 3:1 it says:
See what great love the Father has lavished on us,
that we should be called children of God!
And that is what we are!
