“When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.” John 16:21
The spiritual lessons to be learned from parenting are still being revealed to me, and each is so incredible. The book of John has been such a source of comfort and enlightenment recently. With Pastor Paul walking through John on Sundays and BJ uncovering some particularly profound applications from John for our family life, I’m seeing the path of parenting laid out more clearly now than ever before. I ask all my prayer warriors out there to lift me up for relief from anxieties and insecurities that could cause me to stray from that path, and to praise God for ALWAYS lighting a way for his children who are willing to follow!
