God Guides

Sometimes making the right decision as a parent is next to impossible. If you choose one path, it may have undesirable consequences. On the other hand, another decision may net equally negative results. Parenting is filled with these moments.

Another difficult aspect of making decisions for your children is the input from other parents and friends who would not have made the same decision you did. They will often tell you why because people usually aren’t afraid of sharing their opinions.

This difficulty may not have happened to you yet, but it will. In those moments, your peace will come from knowing you have prayed and listened for God to direct your path. At times, it will be the only peace you feel. That’s why it’s important to remember that he does see your need and he will guide you as you seek him. It’s his promise.

Psalms 119:35

Points to Ponder

*Have you ever felt all alone in making a decision for your children? Did you still have peace? Why?

*How do you respond when other people disagree with a decision you make?

*For what decision do you need to seek God’s wisdom right now?
