She brought home a C...it feels like the teacher graded my parenting.
He walked away from his Christian upbringing...I sense judgement.
She threw herself into the floor of the department store...every scream surfaces in my heart as failure.
I used to keep a ledger of my performance as a parent. Every day and moment my mood vacillated with my imaginary standard of perfection in parenting. I'd been taught to hold my children with an open hand but appearances kept clenching a fist around my heart.
How did I loosen my grasp? With allowing these words to slip from my lips - Lord, Lead Me.
Lord, Lead Me...keeps my gaze on the One who establishes my worth.
Lord, Lead Me...keeps grace at the forefront of my heart.
Lord, Lead Me...keeps God in His rightful place.
Will you join me as we continue this Tuesday series of Life Transforming Prayer?
Lord, Lead Me.
Lord, Lead You.
Lord, Lead Us.
