And heavens to betsy...what's with all the hormones?!
Seriously. Was I like that too?
I'm a girl so I honestly do my best to relate. I do.
"I love you."
"I like you."
"I don't like you right now."
"Your so annoying."
"I hate my life!"
"This is cool."
"This is lame."
"That was sooo much fun!"
"Ugghh. I'm so bored."
"I want to talk."
"I don't want to talk to you right now."
"I want to share every little detail of all the 12 Lauren's that I know." (which is quite hard to keep up with, I might add.)
"Why are you all up in my business?"
"Mom, I need your help."
"I can do it on my own Mom!"
It's like a roller coaster ride taking me up and down and all around. And when it stops, even though I have that small sick feeling at the pit of my stomach...I want to get back on...and do it again!
One of life's biggest gifts...and the eighth wonder of the world.
How does God do it?
One day at a time I guess...one day at at time.
Lord Jesus...guide me today. Help me to lead my children into their purpose in You. Give me strength, patience and courage in my areas of weakness. Help me to remember to apply love where I am quick to apply frustration. Help me to have an open ear, an open mind and an open heart to truly hear the needs of my children's hearts. Help me to speak softly without harm, disciplining with love. Give me Your wisdom where I need it the most.
Ecclesiastes 7:25 I directed my mind to know, to investigate and to seek wisdom and an explanation, and to know the evil of folly, and the foolishness of madness.
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us rip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us RUN WITH ENDURANCE the race God has set before us.
Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow, will worry about itself. Each day has enough troubles of it's own.
