He Parents Me // A Thrive Moms Post
Tuesday, February 24, 2015
I'm over at Thrive Moms today talking about how God parents me as I parent my children. Here's an excerpt:
"After dinner I came in the house and went straight up to her room and watched her sleep for a couple minutes. I felt the Lord lovingly remind me He was there. In the room. In the situation. In my heart. But even still, how often do I grasp so tight to my children with my own pitifully weak hands? I must figure this out. I must fix this. I can take care of her all by myself! How often do I flip the "auto-worry" switch instead of trusting in what I know about His sovereignty?
I quietly laid down next to her, snuggled her in tight and closed my eyes. I felt the tears burning and I knew I needed to surrender this. I prayed for God to lift the sadness and stress in my little girl's heart. I prayed for an explanation so that I could better understand how to handle it. But most of all, I thanked Him that He loves her infinitely more than I do. And that in surrendering my fears, He lavishes peace and protection on me."
