FINDING THEIR ADULT...mommy moments

When they're babies, it's hard to believe they'll one day be an ‘adult’.  They each want to grow make personal choices and be on their own (even before knowing about paying the bills and earning money).

Dear Christian Daughters/Sons:
Throughout the years, limits and consequences SEEM like punishment, but it's really protection and teaching, deciding consequences, and struggling when guiding tightly or loosely.  

Your daily decisions can be like looking down into the ocean, seeing a blur of activity and not seeing the dolphin until it’s close to the surface...out of the depths and suddenly in your face. 

Youth obliviousness will transform into adult awareness gradually through little and big choices.  Each choice chisels away unveiling you, striking deeper into your reality:  moment by moment choosing grace and truth 
choosing evil's temptations, accepting his guise of fun or “it’s just one time”

Praying God protects through any poor choices while sending GREATER blessings through good and right choices.  He and His Words, His Sacrifice, His Resurrection and Eternal Relationship is our gift through His Grace.  

Desiring God’s BEST is what I desire for ALL new adults...God’s guidance in every decision.  

Psalm 22:30 
”As the word is passed along from parent to child. Babies not yet conceived will hear the good news— that God does what he says.”

Psalm 103:6 “As parents feel for their children, God feels for those who fear him. He knows us inside and out”

so true!

My daughter just called and in the conversation said "mom in just one short month I could know where I will be for grad school" and I said "in just 3 shorts months, you will graduate and be ON YOUR OWN!" She gasped and said "No I won't! I'm not ready to be on my own!!"

so funny. she's ready, she just doesn't know it yet!

So touched by your message. I remember in my youth that I feel unsure of what path in the future is there for me. But in faith, praying and perseverance, God will really give you what's right for you. I'm happy to where I am now and I'm so blessed to have a family.

I have 'kids' this of my constant prayers beginning especially in earnest in the teen years was that a roadblock would be thrown in the path of bad decisions. It is fun to see them stepping into adulthood now.
