Parenting with God

There is nothing that makes a person “die to self” (John 12:24) faster than having a child.

Raising children is a gift and a blessing that we share with God. We are responsible to raise them up to know Him (their father) as we do. Teaching them to obey, to be self-disciplined, and to love others as we love ourselves, and to know and love God as a truly merciful and loving God that He is. It is the most lofty and heavy thing we do as humans. Quite frankly, it is nightmare to try and do without God, but an honor and glorious quest when we let Him take the lead on managing this important endeavor.

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22;6

As I witness future and newly gifted parents walking into their future of raising a young soul in this world, I feel the grace of God, knowing that God is with us all in this. I also feel the calling to help, as we all need to be able to lean on one another through these challenges of life. I’m thankful for those who came before us, who helped raise us, and for those who raise others’ kids when God called them to do so. All glory to God!

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Psalms 135;3-5

While there are challenging days and sometimes utterly hopeless (feeling) days when raising kids, it is such an honor to witness God’s goodness and His profound love for us. A love He wants us to have, not only for our own children, but for all of His. Such an amazing love He has for us all!

Blessings to you this day! May your love of God grow richer and more enduring as you remember your childhood, your children’s lives, and the lives of children yet to join us. And may we always give thanks to Jesus Christ for being with us every step of our journey to an eternal life with Him as the first-born of all sons and daughters of Our God Most High.

Amen! ❤️

All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.

Isaiah 54;13
