A Prayer for Every Season of Life
Ecclesiastes 3:11 "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end" A mom will experience every season of life with her child, from a newborn baby, to the toddler years, on through elementary age, pre-teen years, and teenage years and into adulthood. Each season brings new challenges, sorrows and joys. Keep in mind, as a mom, that God will make everything beautiful in its own time. You may be in a difficult season right now, but one day you will see how God used these hard days to build strength and endurance in you and your child.
Try to enjoy the season of life you are experiencing right now. Ask God to show you how to take the challenges that are ahead of you and turn them into a learning time, both for your child and you. God wants to teach all of us how to grow and depend on Him through every season of life. Many times, God will use our children to teach us moms some of the biggest lessons in life. What is God teaching you in your life right now? Is it patience, grace, self-control? We need all these characteristics in the journey of motherhood.
Help me enjoy each season of life I am in and not rush forward or wish for days gone by. I pray that I will look to You when life gets hard. I need Your wisdom and guidance concerning my children. Thank You for always being there for me.
