If he is playing, whether inside or out, I stay a step or two behind him so I can be right there if he falls and skins his knee. Yes, I'm a bit of a worry wart. But what does that say about my faith? All this worrying stresses me out and doesn't make me much fun to play with or to play around.
"Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you."
I read the Bible daily, sometimes several times a day and sometimes for long periods at one sitting. Because I have the knowledge of God from my time in His Word, I know that worrying isn't "just how moms are", worrying is a sin and a trick of the devil to wear down our faith.
The devil is a sneaky one! He uses lies and trickery to fool us into believing that it's okay to worry about our kids to the point that we hurt our relationship with God and others. But, I have good news for you! God knows the devil, after all, He created him.
The Bible also details for us the kind of legacy we, as moms, should want to leave for our children and that will make our home a happy and comfortable place for our entire family and for those who come to visit.
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.
Psalm 13:5But I trust in your unfailing love.
I will rejoice because you have rescued me.I will sing to the LORDbecause he is good to me.
