I hope the faithfulness, energy, and vigor of the Proverbs 31 woman inspires you. As I encouraged you in my last post the Lord knows the value of the work He has given us and what it takes mentally and physically to accomplish it. And believe me, if you are a parent he has given you a valuable work indeed. He has also given you one more gift – His creativity.
Do you know you’re created in the image of God? I want it to sink into your heart and mind that you are a creative and intelligent person! You are a reflection of God’s glory. You reflect Him to other people, especially to your children. Every time you reach out in love, perform a deed of kindness, and show forgiveness, patience, and faithfulness, others experience the character of God through you.
Resolve to continue spending time with God on a daily basis through prayer and the study of His Word. Draw inspiration from God’s heart and let the Creator help you parent through the hard times and the sweet moments. Rejoice in the strength He gives for each day, and the hope He offers for every day!
A Prayer to Pray: “Lord Creator, You are with me every step of the way in this parenting job. I am excited to share You with my child by living out Your goodness. When I need a boost, a creative idea, or an attitude adjustment, Your ever-present hope brings relief and renewal.”
