What if that thing you think you can’t do is actually something you can do?

To My Fellow Parents
Just a note of encouragement to say…keep going, keep wanting the best for your kids, keep training them up, keep trying, keep loving them, keep believing the best, keep leading them, keep their perspective in mind, keep trusting He cares for them more than you ever can.
Don’t give up. Parenting is one of the most important roles ever created for us on Earth. If you’re a parent, you know it’s one of the most challenging, too. There is no manual and it may get stressful to the point it hurts, but it is worth it. Your kids are worth it.
So, take a deep breath and know you are making a difference in their lives when you do your best as a parent. Sure, you’re not perfect, but they don’t need perfection. They need you to show them how to live, as best as you – flawed, imperfect but caring, loving, dedicated you – possibly can.
Love on your children today. It is a deposit you will get back with interest. It’s perhaps the best investment you will ever make.
Have a great day.
What Are You Magnifying?
“What you magnify, you get more of.”
Wow. I heard this today and it really made me think. What am I magnifying in my life? What am I putting my focus on?
Am I spending more time magnifying what’s wrong instead of what’s right? Am I looking at things the right way? What has my focus? Am I seeing God’s blessings or ignoring them? Is my focus on Him or me?
What you magnify, you get more of. Couldn’t agree more with that. Time to take a closer look and see what that is for me. Perhaps you, too?
Have a great day.
“Often our biggest problem is not the problem, but our perspective on it.”
“We all need to take a big step back, reflect, and ask ourselves this one question: ‘Why don’t we put this same amount of effort into making the world a better place by donating our time, talents and/or money?’ Turn all this negativity into something positive and be the change you want to see in the world, instead of the alternative.”
The author is spot-on with her assessment of what needs to happen next, after so much name-calling and finger pointing that has happened these past several months, and is still continuing today.
Channel your feelings into something positive, friends.
Have a great day!
