I feel as though I am watching my son go through boot camp and I cant do anything about it. I guess that is just a peek into God’s heart when He watches us go through the hard things in life and knows he cant just take it all away. He knows they are for our own good. All He can do at times is remind us that he is always there for us, show unconditional love, give us strength and peace. That is what this mama needs to do, but I found myself needing to ask God to cleans my heart so only a good attitude is shown through my words. I needed to get my heart right and have God’s perspective. If my heart as a parent isn’t right, than how am I going to show my son how he should respond correctly to situations he doesn’t like. Selah! God please give us GRACE, Understanding, Patience and Wisdom.
Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Create in me a pure heart, O God,and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
