Have you ever felt Unequipped, Unprepared and Unqualified for the task ahead. Well, that’s exactly how I feel right now. The moments when our son breaks down, throws a fit and says mean things ALWAY TRY to bring me down!!! But then after a moment of sadness and a little self pity…. I remembered that my life is not my own any longer…. And THAT he is responding the way he was once taught.
The truth is that my husband and I have no idea the pain he has endured, so I have to remember in these moments where I feel so brokenhearted because of the things he has said or done, that he is doing the best he can with the revelation that he has.
We missed out on five years of his life! Please pray with us, that we constantly remember that this entire journey’s not about us, and that even though I’m pregnant and a little extra emotional, I can’t allow my emotions to cloud the fact that God put our family together.
THAT God was the one who chose us for our sweet son, AND that God and God alone is the one who has equipped, prepared, and positioned us to love our sweet baby exactly the way he needs to be loved.
If you have ever felt unequipped…… In our weakness, God is our strength!! I have so many moments of weakness that all I can do is depend on God for guidance, wisdom, clarity, and peace. I am learning that even though being a parent DOES NOT come with the handbook, (Which it should!!!) lol my husband and I dive into the word of God and use it as our source of light!!!! In return, we are renewed every morning!!!
SCRIPTURES FOR ANY MOM WHO HAS EVER FELT UNQUALIFIED OR UNEQUIPPED!!
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. —ROMANS 12:12
But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. —1 THESSALONIANS 5:8
God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. HEBREWS 6:18–19
