The sooner you can begin letting go of the illusion that your kids are yours to control, the happier you’ll be. God loves them more than you
Hymns That Help Parents: ‘This is My Father’s World’
Singing this hymn helps me take my parenting stress to the throne room of God and lay it at his feet.
When parenting feels overwhelming or when we feel helpless, we must remember we are never hopeless, for the Spirit of Christ is at work in and through us.
Hymns and worship music have literally and figuratively been the instruments God frequently uses to pull me out of these places of anguish. In particular, Henry Van Dyke’s “Hymn of Joy.”
As my children get older, and as my grip slowly loosens on their daily lives, God’s grip on my life and my children’s has never, and will never, change or loosen.
My time in college has taught me that only with God is there joy, hope, and love.
In his lovingkindness, Jesus often allows us to look back at seasons of distress and see how he carried us through.
