For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:13-14, NIV)
How amazing is it that each of us was uniquely created by God? When we are pregnant it is so exciting to think that God is knitting our baby together in our womb. As we see ultrasounds of our child growing inside of us, we can see that they truly are fearfully and wonderfully made.
We believe they are wonderful... and then they are born! Shortly thereafter, we begin to experience their uniqueness. It doesn't take long as a mom to realize that God did not create all of us the same. You may have a child who is strong willed and ALWAYS pushes the limits, or a child who NEVER meets a stranger and NEVER stops talking, or a picky perfectionist or a child who is hard to motivate because they are so laid back.
However God created your little bundle of joy, you can rest in the fact that His works are wonderful! When we come up against tough personality traits in our children, it can be frustrating to say the least. Often, we struggle to figure out how to best relate to, discipline and train up each individual child. In those moments of confusion and frustration, cry out to God. He knit your child together in your womb. He knows them better than you ever will.
Ask God to give you wisdom as to how to best love, discipline and teach each of your children. No matter how frustrating a season you may be going through with your child, don't give up! God has given EVERY child specific gifts and talents that He wants to grow and use for His glory. We were not all created the same, but we were all fearfully and wonderfully made by our loving, heavenly Father!
