“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
God has given us a precious gift—our children. They fit into His plan for our hope and our future. He intends for them to be a prosperous thing, and not a harmful thing in our lives. Of course there will come days that are harder than others, our kids may test us and try us, our patience may wear thin, and we may yell a little, or cry a little. Maybe at the end of the day we can’t see the hope or the future. God can see it, He knows your day, and He is working everything out according to His plans. Maybe on those hard days, God sees that your heart has grown a little, and there is a little more room for His love, All is in His hands, so trust Him to work out His plans for you and your children.
