Racing and Reeling



As moms, we know we can't protect our kids forever. How can we handle our fears about all the terrible things that might happen to them?

A couple years ago my teenage son asked if he could take his brother and sisters to get ice cream and I said, “Sure, let’s go” but that wasn’t the plan.

“No, mom!” My son tried to explain, “We sort of want to go just us kids!”  My heart seized.  What if something horrible happened?  My brain started racing and reeling.

I stood at the front window of my house chewing my nails, and I realized I had a choice. I asked God to help me park my mind on the truth. The Bible says each of my kids has been assigned by God a certain number of days, and nothing will take God by surprise. Now, I can’t say that remembering this took away all my fears, but it sure did comfort my mom heart!
