“Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4, NASB
Thoughts of my children fill my heart as I consider what to pray. Worldliness beckons all around, boldly declaring its “worth.” Evil circles, stalking my children like an animal pursuing prey. Options to live for self abound in our narcissistic society.
Yet You are there.
As my children navigate their way through life, You are there. As they face temptation and opposition, You are there. As they seek meaning and purpose, You are there.Stronger. Mightier. Victorious! Because they’ve placed their faith in Christ, YOU walk with them, strengthen them, and protect them. Oh, I’m so grateful for this truth.
Teach me to trust You more with my children’s best interests—to rest in the knowledge that You’ve entrusted them to my husband and me for a little while, but ultimately, they belong to You.
