But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” (Psalm 31:14 NIV)
Thoughts stirring within back to teen days attending my home church. An old hymn…Thy loving kindness is better than life…my lips shall praise thee…I will lift up my hands unto the Lord. I stand in awe at this moment. Back in those day, hymns sung being deposited down deep in my soul. Fast forwarding 30+ years, now having myself a high school honor graduate preparing this summer a move to Texas. He’ll begin his college years at Texas A&M Galveston. Howdy!
When someone says they could write a book on someone’s experiences. This is true for how we have seen God work in this child’s life. I want to encourage everyone- we all go through tough seasons, never give up. Sometimes we have to look within where we can help stop being part of the problem and work towards solutions. A truth for every relationship conflict.
Mommas just have a special need to be over protective. Especially, when need for momma bear to protect. It’s not a nice world. More and more every day, individuals are out for themselves and not for good of others. Yet, God does not call any human to be a momma bear. He says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy burdened, and I will give you rest.” “Vengeance is mine, I will repay,” says The Lord. God sees all, trust Him.
Trusting God with all things, especially trusting Him with children He gave us. He knew them and their purpose while in their mother’s wombs. Where I have gone through refining fire as an adult. I hope my oldest has been through enough refining fire through his childhood, now proved to be shining for God’s purpose. As far as parenting this child- who never fit into my box, who has proved time and time again, we can trust him…excels far beyond our imagination.
For all graduates this May- I wish you the very best. Trust God with all things. He has our back- it’s not our job to repay evil with evil. Trusting God- we free ourselves and trust He’ll deal with hearts of the opposer. Trusting in God’s Word- claiming scripture, worship, fasting and praying are all keys to overcoming troubled seasons. When we do…sweet days do arrive.
