My prayer

Over the past couple of months I have been convicted about how I am mothering our children. Am I being the mom that God has called me to be? Am I showing them His love? Am I disciplining them in a loving and gentle manner? Sadly, my answer is no. This leaves me broken-hearted and angry with myself. On the other hand, I have found myself desperately clinging to the word of God more than I ever have before.

I was driving to the airport to pick up my sister about a month ago when I heard a song on the radio that has become my prayer for me and my kids. It's called "Let Them See You" by JJ Weeks Band. The chorus is as follows:

"Let them see You in me
Let them hear You when I speak
Let them feel You when I sing
Let them see You
Let them see You in me"

I love my girls more than words can express and I want to demonstrate God's love and compassion daily. I don't want them to remember me losing my cool or not reacting with the kindness Jesus requires of me. I pray they see The Lord in me daily.

Such a beautiful post and picture. We all go through rough days-even seasons, and we'll never be perfect for our children. I've had those times too, where I needed a do-over as a mom. Isn't it wonderful that His mercies are new every morning? Love you friend.
