This morning started out pretty rough with the kids whining a lot and yelling and crying, and I wrote a post on my ladies’ accountability/small group Facebook wall asking for prayer for us today that things would turn around, and that I wouldn’t take out my frustration on the kids.
One friend sent me a link to a blog post that talked about our childrens’ potential and how many great qualities they have, and how important it is to encourage them. I try to make sure to speak uplifting and encouraging words to the kids, but I know that on the bad days I can tend to focus on the negative. The post also shared this video that I wanted to share with you!
Father God, thank You so much for trusting me to raise the children you have given me. Help me to speak life to them instead of speaking or thinking negatively about their behavior. Help me to raise them and train them to be history makers for you. Amen.
