Surrendering to Time (where there may be NO question of obedience)

 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
    the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
    are the children of one's youth.
 Blessed is the man
    who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
    when he speaks with his enemies in the gate
Psalms 127:3-5 (ESV)

I struggle with surrender, despite regular confessions of my brokenness. Time is an unremitting teacher in learning to yield. You see, while we may want to resist God’s Will in our lives, we are often anxious to move when He would bid us wait. Or, we want to stay, to hold on, to slow time because the beauty of where we are, the exquisiteness of what we feel is so powerful that we are certain NOTHING will ever make us feel this way again. In every case, God moves solely according to Divine Plan.



Do you want to know the lessons Time has taught me about parenting and faith? Please join me at Finding Heaven Today, home of the Soli Deo Gloria Sisterhood, where Jen Ferguson has kindly invited me to share my words. We tend to think parenting is all about our children; we got growing up to do, too. Would you join me for the rest of the story?
