Parenting

One of my favorite songs is “This Is The Stuff” by Francesca Battistelli. Why? Because I can completely identify.

Little things set me off quickly. My kids and I will have a great morning getting ready for school, but once I realize we are late nothing goes right, my kids get slower and things start happening; like a spilled cup, choosing the shoes I specifically asked them not to wear, I can’t find me keys, etc. I repeatedly think: You’ve got to be kidding me! (or as a friend of mine says: Seriously?!) I’m stressed and cranky and my kids are stressed and crying. Making the morning drive one that requires me trying to salvage the morning so everyone doesn’t have a terrible day.

Any yet, among all the crazy I forget how blessed I am. I have two amazing kids who are healthy and smart. They love me so very much as I do them. I have a husband who works hard to provide for us and yet makes sure he always has time for us. Yet, another list I could go on and on with how God has blessed me.

John 10:10 says, “A thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.” Satan doesn’t have control over me, but he sure likes to try and distract me from my blessings by making me take for granted what God has given me. 1 Peter 5:8-9a says, “Be alert! Your adversary the Devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour. Resist him and be firm in the faith…” If I don’t resist him, these attitudes and feelings will devour me and destroy my relationship with my kids. I want, and want for my kids, the abundant life Jesus was talking about in John 10:10.

And with that I say NOT TODAY SATAN! Since being late tends to start my many problems I have been working harder to get up a little earlier each day so that “We’re late” isn’t a regular morning statement any more. So far, we’ve had about two great weeks with easy going mornings! Thank you, Jesus, for your wisdom and help!

How is Satan attacking you, your family, your marriage, or your friends? And what are you going to do about it?

When I talk to the kindergarten kids in my Sunday school class, I get down on my knees so we are face to face. If you have children, this is a very common practice. Making direct eye contact and not towering over them helps to better communicate no matter the message. It works for both, “you did great today” or “did you color on your sister’s wall?”

Psalm 95:6 says, “Come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the Lord our maker.” I know that kneeling before the Lord is a sign of honor and humbleness, but also helps me focus on the fact that I am communicating with the great I AM. Sometimes He is telling me I did well that day. Sometimes He is convicting me about something I need to confess or change. Just like I can lovingly get the preschoolers attention, God can get my attention when He meets me face to face. Get down on your knees today while you pray and see if it makes a difference in your prayer time.

Extra added tip… this one is free. One day instead of kneeling down to speak to your child, you will be standing side by side, or maybe even looking up). The time you spent kneeling and having face to face time with them and the Lord will be a blessing to both of you.

It’s only happened to me once or twice and I hope that it never happens again. It’s that panic that sets into your heart when you think you’ve lost one of you children. Since these two incidences my kids have been banned from hiding in clothing wracks. They thought they were being funny as they were going to jump out and scare me. They learned very quickly that it wasn’t funny at all.

Do you think God feels that same panic and urgency when He looks at those who are “lost” to Him? We are surround be people who either know nothing about God or who pick and choose what they want from Him, thus, never really knowing Him. I assume that He aches for them probably more so than a parent who has lost a child that has never returned home, as He alone knows the horrible fate that awaits them.

But there is hope. Luke 19:10 says, “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Jesus, God’s Son is constantly seeking and saving the lost. And we can help bring God’s children home through prayer and sharing our testimony and God’s Word with those who are lost.

TODAY, Pray for someone who is lost to God. And pray for those parents who have lost a child. That they would receive peace, guidance and wisdom as they go through their troubling time.

Why does society sometimes call what is meant to be a blessing a punishment?

For some who find themselves unexpectedly pregnant,

although circumstances might not be what you had hoped for,

and your worried how you are going to make it through, there is one thing you should know…

To be given a child is a blessing. That baby is not given to you as a consequence or to punish you. That baby is a reminder that you are loved by God. And maybe through the love you’ll have for this child you get a small glimpse of just how much He loves you.

Enjoy your little ones and remember they are blessings, gifts, and rewards.

Kids are a blessing

Parenting Tip From God

The text “Way He Should Go” has been explained in two ways.

One, that parents should rear their children following the principles found in God’s Word. Teaching them to love, forgive, and serve others. Training them to pray and read their Bible daily and set an example for their children to follow.

Two, that each child is different, and requires different responses, training and leadership to become who God created them to be. This requires their parents reliance on God for wisdom and guidance; since God is the only one who knows what is best for each child.

And don’t forget prayer. Lot’s of prayer for our children, for us (their parents), for their future spouses, for their future decisions, for their future as a child of God, etc.
