The journey from infancy through childhood and adolescence to adulthood is already difficult and confusing enough for both parents and children. Add the volatility of a father struggling with the ravages of Combat Trauma, and you’ve got a truly mystifying voyage.
The primary instinct of every parent – especially of mothers – is to protect their children. But within your heart this instinct is competing with several others as well: to be supportive, honoring and protective to your husband, to preserve your marriage, to keep yourself safe, to maintain a harmonious and loving household, to pursue your relationship with God…the list could go on. It’s more than you can figure out on your own, but not too much for God – and He wants to help you with it:
But if any of you needs wisdom, you should ask God for it. He is generous to everyone and will give you wisdom without criticizing you. – James 1:5 (CEV)
