“There is something I’ve come to realize I need to guard against as a mom. I sometimes want to be God in my kids’ lives.
I want to write their stories.
I want to set the course for their futures.
I want to determine what’s best for them.
I want to prevent them from ever being hurt.
I want to be their provider and protector.
And I want to be the one to set anyone straight who messes with my kids.”
Oh my! Is she reading my mind?

So often as a mom, I feel like my hands are tied to straighten their path; help them make wise choices. I am grateful today for Lysa pointing me again to the most powerful thing I can do as a mom.
Not look for an opportunity for a great conversation.
Not manipulate the circumstances to try to prevent pain.
Not send a book, a verse or anything else I hope they’re read.
The most powerful thing I will do today is pray.
