The desperation, anxiety, weariness, and unfulfilled longings are all there because we weren’t made for this world.
When we parent only for the now we will always be too weak, too weary, and desperate. The present contains only hopelessness. Parenting however isn’t about the present. Being a mother to my children is about eternity. It’s about raising my children to KNOW and LOVE the Lord.
The grace of God turns our weakness to strength, desperation to calm, and emptiness to overflowing. Our hopelessness is turned to the greatest hope that ever was: We will one day walk with the Lord in absolute perfection.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9
