These weekend features are to remind us of all of the INGs of life. The Waiting, the Enjoying, the Believing. The things that make your heart sit up and take notice, or simply take up room in your head all week. Here’s what’s taking up residence this week:
the TRUSTING mama
On Monday, we touched on the topic of praying for our kids.
Moms want their kids to be okay, almost more than anything. But we moms also know that we have no way of guaranteeing that. Admittedly that freaks me out a bit. But it also brings great comfort. Comfort trumps freaking out. Or at least it should.
I’d much rather have the lives of my children in the hands of our most capable Father. That’s comfort. God truly has our children. Even when things seem bleak. Even when we don’t understand. Even when we don’t know what’s coming next.
Essentially, if we choose anxiety over trusting, we’ll be a wreck. We’ve all been there.
But we don’t have to be.
This weekend, let’s vow to be mamas who trust. Leaving our children in His loving arms.
**It’s time to announce Monday’s contest winner: Congratulations to Laura Fenwick, we’ll be in touch shortly!**
Guess what!? We’ve got one more copy of Praying Circles Around the Lives of Your Children by Mark Batterson to give away. How fun is that? Just enter the contest below, and we’ll announce the second winner on Monday morning!
