Yesterday, I felt like a failure as a mommy.
I lost my temper.
I was a sobbing mess.
I was totally overwhelmed by the disciplinary needs of my children, not to mention my lack of sleep.
I felt judged as a mommy. Have you ever been there?
And I sat on my mountain of laundry and cried....and prayed...and cried some more.
God led me to some wonderful verses on discipline. And even more on wisdom.
Because He knows I need wisdom!
And He reminded me that I can start over today.
His grace is new every morning.
And it's His GRACE that gives me the STRENGTH to love my children enough to correct, train, and reprove them.
So, today, I am going to....
Look into my children's eyes and smile tender smiles.
Build lego forts.
Read books--lots of books.
Show them how to live.
Teach them right and wrong.
Train them. Diligently. Consistently.
Hold their little hands and dance.
"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22: 6
