Worried About Raising Children in THIS World?
With everything happening in the world these days it's easy to find yourself being worried about raising your children and them growing up in a world filled with so much hatred, violence and an evident lack of genuine love. The way we view the world now, as mothers, is probably much different than we have ever viewed the world around us.
Did anyone else view the world and things differently after becoming a mother?
Now, instead of just you to think about you have a whole other life form (or in some cases multiple ones) to think about! I mean that's a tall order, you are responsible for another life! As if being responsible for your own wasn't difficult enough. You now have a new generation of other people to think about and that's deep. Then add on everything we have seen and experienced in the last year and the last few days going into the new year and well, my heart just crushes a bit thinking about the future for our little ones.
When I cast my human flesh aside for a moment and remember the goodness of the Lord I am encouraged and empowered to go on and to do so with great peace. Listen, by the word of God I am reminded that weapons will form, guaranteed, but they will not prosper against me, my seed or my house in Jesus name! I'm boldly reminded that no matter what is happening around me or my children it will not come near unto us. I belong to the church of the LIVING God and the very gates of hell shall not prevail against me, in Jesus name!
Why? Because God is with me! God is for me! And evil will not prevail against me! We are the prevailing church of the most high God! Hallelujah!! I'm strengthened by God's word to know that he will always help me, he will always make a way for me and my house and he will always take care of me and my family just as he always has. Even now, i'm reminded to not lean on my own understanding of things (life) but rather to acknowledge God in all things and he will direct me and help me all along the way.
