Moms and Worry

As a mom I have been prone to worry about my kids. Particularly when things are not what I thought they should be or don’t look like I want them to. After stepping away from the situation I ask myself exactly what good does worrying do? Does it improve the situation? The answer is “no”. In fact it actually creates more problem because of the affects it has on my physical body. It also has an adverse affect on my kids because when I freak out, they begin to lose their grip on the situation as well.
My faith is tested the most when situations arise concerning my kids. I think it’s the hardest test of our faith as women because we are so close to what is going on. We have so much invested emotionally in their well being. We have brought them up from the womb and they have depended on us for everything from food to clothing so we should be able to control there life forever right… haha. It makes it a little easier to understand why we, as mothers, have a hard time trusting God with these little or not so little people.
We have to realize that God formed them from the womb. He gave them each their individual gifts and lets face it, God is God.
Worry will not add a single day to their life ( Matt. 6:25-30) it will not fix whatever situation they are in but God knows what to do. Let’s let Him do it. Stop second guessing each decision we make, stop second guessing each decision they make. Let our yes be yes and our no be no (Matt. 5:37).
Today I give my kids to you, I relinquish control to the God who made the Heavens and the earth. To the God who calms the storm and raises the dead. To the God who sent His only child to redeem mine.
