Two Great Lessons Re-learned

Home : Musings : Parenting : Two Great Lessons Re-learned

I just learned two great lessons again:

1) Things rarely go the way you plan or hope they would go. While I was looking forward to taking on my full-time mom role for the next two weeks, I hadn’t imagined that I’d be up all night nursing my feverish princess. But there I was, and I’m ever so grateful to God for His healing grace for my Little Miss and for His comforting hand upon me as I watched over her.

2) God is in control and there’s no need to worry. I was praying and pleading to God for healing and He spoke to me telling me not to be upset and fearful – by showing me this photograph when I looked over at my husband’s computer which was open to his Facebook account:

How very apt indeed:

Philippians 4:6-7 – “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” (The Message)
