My children are always on my mind and heart, and lately, they have really consumed my prayers more than ever. I feel like the Lord is prodding me to speak truth into their lives and has, subsequently, been speaking truth about them into mine.
I want their bones to be straight, their muscles to be strong, their hearts to beat efficiently, and their brains to work just right.
I want them to be certain of His unending, unfailing love for them.
I want them to know that their daddy and I love them with all of our hearts but that could never compare to God's love for them. And, I don't want to ever stand in the way of that.
Oh, how I love them so.
But, they are not mine.
They are His.
Lord, help me to live in a manner worthy of these gifts you have given me for a short time on this earth. Find them faithful.
