God, how am I supposed to do this? How do I raise kids in a world that is running from you?
How do I explain things -that I learned at a much later age -to my children because society has shoved it’s agenda in their faces?
How do I protect their innocence as long as possible? How do I teach them to be leaders and not followers? How do I show them that not everyone gets a trophy in real life? How do I encourage them to not follow the crowd? How do I encourage them to stand up to the bully, and to cheer on the underdog? How do I give them the tools they need to stand strong and be bold in the midst of great adversity? How do I teach them to love people but not necessarily the sin that causes separation from you? How do I show them to speak up when everyone else is silent? How do I cheer for greatness, when average is what’s in? How do I inform them that they may walk alone, when they choose what’s right?
God, I ask for your strength, your direction, your guidance-I cannot do this on my own-I need you like never before.
I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
In Jesus name- Amen.
Psalms 91 always provides me peace, this verse particularly-“He who dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
