A New Heart

Description

I want to teach my child how to love others the way God loves us—unconditionally.

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. Ezekiel 36:26-27

The world can be a cruel place, especially towards our children. As a mom, we want to protect and shield our children from anything hurtful or harmful. With such good intentions of protecting and shielding our children from danger, often our hearts become cold and calloused toward others. Protecting our children's safety is paramount, but so is protecting our own hearts. 

The condition of our heart directly affects the way we parent and the way we teach our child to “see” the world. As a mom, I do not want to teach my child to be afraid of others and not to give love until they are loved in return. I want to teach my child how to love others the way God loves us, unconditionally. I want to teach my child how to pull alongside of another person and serve them selflessly. 

God promises us that He will give us a new heart and a new spirit. We only need to ask Him.  He is ready to remove our heart of stone and give us a heart that is full of love and grace. A mom that parents with love and grace and teaches her child how to live that type of life, is a mom who is worthy to be praised. 

Prayer

Father, Give me Your heart. Give me Your love towards others. Give me wisdom, so that I will in turn teach Your ways to my children. I do not want to parent in fear, all-consumed by what the world is doing. I want to parent with a new heart. Thank You for being my provider of all things.
