Little People Dealing With Big People Problems
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)
