If you are a parent, no matter what age your children are, it is an absolutely natural feeling to worry about the sake and well-being of your families. We are in control of most aspects of our kids' lives, however when there are variables that are out of our control (such as the spread of Covid-19 at this time), we must stand steadfast in the truth that God is still in control of ALL things. Let's remember that we are still in control of something that God has called on us to do:
Loving, caring for, being intentional with, and protecting our children.
Instead of scrolling social media and listening to the news, let's put those things away for a few minutes each day. Let's put our hands together, close our eyes, and pray a prayer of thanksgiving. Thanks be to God for allowing us this time to spend with our families, in our homes, and being able to physically be present in their lives for this moment.
One song that we have been playing in our home repeatedly is 'Waymaker' by Leeland. I encourage you to listen to this song and to speak these lyrics right to your children for memorization.
Light in the darkness
That is who you are
See you next week, friends! Stay safe!
