Have you ever stumbled upon some information that you’d rather not known about, seen something that you would be better off not having seen, heard a conversation or pried into something that in retrospect you wish you had left unopened…
Motherhood seems to be fraught with these situations… All in the name of protecting your child, you seek to peek behind the curtain. To know what is really happening in their life. You hope to head off bad jujubes before they happen……
True faith, tells us, to trust, to be confident that all things work to the good of those who know HIM.
That, is a hard reality to grasp when you are a Mother. You feel like you, through your “Mommy Super Powers” can intervene, advise, protect…. when in reality, all the stress, the sleepless nights, the worrying are worth nothing…. They protect nothing…. They do not prevent accidents, or bad decisions or mistakes made…They do not provide a force field or silver bullet…
Free will prevails and some things must take their course, consequences and all. We are not in control. But I am blessed to know the one who is…..
I will find my rest in God alone.Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isaiah 41:10
He is the One who gives me hope.
The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms” -Deuteronomy 33:27
