This week on YouTube I am sharing some encouragement for you who are dealing with really hard times.
In the past couple of weeks many of you have opened up to me in letters and messages about feeling like a failure as a mom. Oh my sweet friends!
Let me assure you that your child’s success in life does not depend on your level of perfection.
It would be impossible for you to not leave large gaps in your child raising. That’s where God steps in and fills those gaps in ways you never could. Yes, you mess up and sure, you could have done better. I KNOW I COULD HAVE!!! But I also know that my children have a heavenly father who is perfect in all ways and He will fix what I did wrong.
And your kids aren’t perfect either. They will make some doozy mistakes in their lives and there is nothing you can do to stop it. Trying to keep them from ever suffering will only keep them from knowing the truth of a God who is there for them in their deepest time of need.
Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.“
Read the whole chapter of Isaiah 41 for some deep encouragement! When you are feeling like you are alone, turn to the Bible for comfort. When you are consumed with the pain of heartbreak….He is there. When He feels so far away and you don’t sense His presence like you used to, He is still there behind the cloud and taking care of your every need.
I am walking through my own trials now too and I know the depth of the grief many of you are experiencing. Some days I think my heart will literally break in half from the pain I am feeling. Then I read a passage in God’s Word that comforts me and gives me a break from the hurting.
And remember, He lost His son too. He knows your pain. He cares. He is ready to rock you to sleep and give you unexplainable peace.
