SOUL SECRETS OF A FRUSTRATED MOTHER
Updated: Sep 18, 2018
Lord, I am finally bringing this pain to You. I don't not know what to do. Parenting is tough! Forgive me for criticizing my parents. I never knew how difficult their job was. Now, all my ideas about children and parenting have shipwrecked. I’m sorting through the debris of my mistakes, looking for Your direction.
At times, I have acted more childish than the children. I have not been a witness behind closed doors. My temper and my attitudes have not reflected You. My lack of control and other shortcomings have come back to haunt me through my children, and I do not like it.
I know that You are the Master Parent. Yo9u have such patience and such wisdom with me. Help me to reflect those same graces as I raise my children. You are great at loving damaged children who often fail. Make me the kind of parent to my children that You are to me.
I am through trying to control things that are in Your hands. I repent of my worry and I trust You now to strengthen our relationship with each other and with You. Help me to appreciate the good things and good times we do have. I know that, in the end, things and good times we do have. I promise of the Scripture that says “all things work together for good” to those who love the Lord. Thank You for being my Daddy. I leave my troubles in the lap of Your love.
