Parenting Perseverance!


The amount of times I have wanted the result of something without any hard work is countless. Wanting to be fit after one gym session or thinking I should be a professional musician after an attempt to play the guitar. It sounds delusional, but thankfully I am finally surrendering to the reality that if I want to see and experience the results of my goals and dreams, I need to do the work because it doesn’t just happen on its own.

Motherhood is a blessing and a joy, yet I’ve realised that raising a godly family doesn’t just happen; training children in God’s ways and helping them to grow in God doesn’t just happen.

All of these things take time, effort, perseverance, sometimes tears and always a lot of prayers to be the parents that God has called us to be. 

”So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.“

‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

There will be hard days, and you may feel as if you are repeating yourself for the 100th time, but the bible encourages us not to grow weary in doing good. 

Raising children is a good thing, and I am so thankful that God doesn’t leave us to do it alone. He is our helper, He strengthens us, He speaks wisdom and He encourages us to keep going. To not give up but to continue to do what is good.

Some days, as a parent, you may feel that you are walking in the harvest of your hard work, and other days, it may feel as if your efforts are like a drop in the ocean. Take time to spend with the Lord and receive fresh grace to persevere. Don’t quit; remember that you are doing a good thing!
