All We Need
2 Peter 1: 3
His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
How many times, in the life of a mom, do we feel that we do not have what it takes to be a good parent to our child? Have you ever thought to yourself, “I don’t have enough patience, self control, I don’t know how to discipline my child in the right way?" Being a mom pushes us to a place of insecurity and doubt. It is hard to know what to do with an unruly child. It is almost impossible to love a child unconditionally, even though we know we should.
There is good news for us moms! God has already given us everything we need to be the perfect mom for our child. We already have patience, love, self-control tucked deep inside of us by God. The key is to stay connected to God and seek Him for wisdom and discernment. So many times we forget this one simple truth- to stay connected to God- and we try to do it all in our own strength. That is where we mess up. We cannot parent in our own strength. It is too much! We need to grow in our relationship with God and ask Him for His power and love- only then will we see fruit in our parenting. Remember, God is the source of our strength, wisdom and love.
Father, Thank You for my children. Thank You for the blessing that each of their lives brings. Lord, thank You that You have already given to me what I need to be a wonderful mom. Through You, I have all that I need- I don’t have to “try”- it’s already there. Thank You Lord for providing for me, even before I knew I needed it. Remind me to depend on You and not try to parent in my own strength.
