I never have been one to get upset when my children display their uniqueness to the world in how they dress. Instead, I rejoice in their joy and envy their courage. My four year old shown above has on a tutu and Santa socks pulled all the way up to show off their awesomeness. My other daughter went through a one and half week phase of dressing like a dinosaur complete with a hood and very long tail (it was very difficult to get her into her car seat)
As the mother, I suppose I am the one who is supposed to be teaching them but more often than not I am humbled by what they teach me.
I praise God for allowing me to be their mother. What a privilege.
I wonder if God feels the same way when He sees us do scary or unusual things out of obedience to Him. I believe He does a mixture of pride, chuckle and “way to go kid”.
All your children will be taught by the Lord,
and great will be their peace. Isaiah 54:13
Of all the things I could pray for my little wild gifts, it would be this.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for my children. I do not deserve their sweet presence in my life. I agree with Your Word that all my children will be taught by the Lord and great will be their peace, I pray this over my children and children’s children. Grant them joy in their everyday life, peace in times of trouble and wisdom that only comes from You. Embolden them to fearlessly pursuit Your heart. I plead the blood of the Lamb over all my children. Let Your will be done in their lives. Thank You, Jesus. Amen
