Trusting Our Children To God

Trusting Our Children To God

Together with kindness and in understanding, let’s take this time to self reflect.  I am here to inspire, encourage, and remind you that God has given us the most important weapon we have to fight the enemy, his Word.

Now let’s dress our soul like we dress our bodies, EVERYDAY!!

Trusting Our Children To God

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

I tell you, it’s nothing like Gods timing in all matters. I read a very interesting article about parents letting go of their adult children. It got me thinking about my 23 year old daughter who is embarking on her own new journey.  As I continued reading the article, I thought about how the last two decades was in preparation for her new beginning. The wait is over because it’s her time now.

As we trust our children to God we do so in faith.  Nothing seems to test our faith more than when we as parents let go. Letting go means we are giving them over to our Heavenly Father who will continue to guide them according to his will. Age was nothing but a number to my grandmother when it came to loving and supporting her 8 children. Just like the Lord gives us our children as gifts, we eventually have to give them back in his loving care. They are doing what we did at their age. Spread their wings and fly.

What is our new role as our children become adults?

Love is always a part of how we do things, it never fails! Pray with and for them concerning EVERYTHING. Encourage and support their goals and plans. When they need us, be more than just a checkbook, be present through text messages and calls. Respect their right to choose how they will handle decisions regarding their household. And finally plan a visit. It’s nothing like breaking bread together.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 NIV

Remember we are each others keeper and the only time we should be looking down on someone is when we are helping them up.
