Restful Parenting (Part 2)

Restful Parenting (Part 2)

I hope the April 10th email was an encouragement for you! It was for me. It’s amazing how easily I get in a rut where I heap loads of pressure on myself and work as if this world can’t keep spinning without me. How stupid and prideful of me. God forgive me for my continued arrogance but thank you for your grace and your continued pursuit of me to enjoy your rest. This kind of rest won’t necessarily take away all your issues with your boss, make the mountain of laundry on the couch disappear, or give your teenager the sweetest disposition. Don’t expect any of that to happen but remember that in the midst of the fiercest struggles you can have rest that is dependent on the Lord that is working in you as you work. You are His beloved! Rest in that fact!

Today we will see how this rest intertwines with our parenting. Grab another coffee and enjoy the fact that God is for you and is committed to building your house!
