Parental pain...

Okay, I do not like this...I am starting to encounter some of the things that I heard my parents talk about. I have experienced a big disappointment. Don't get ideas, it isn't anything life changing or horrendous, but a kind of sadness that I couldn't have imagined. I don't really know even how to handle it. God gives us mercy, so I want to also have mercy and give mercy, but I also have to train, guide, discipline. How do you do both? I hate that I disappoint God this way, it makes me sad. I guess maybe that is why I am feeling this now, just so I have a hint of how much God loves us, despite how we've messed up. Thank you God for your grace.

You being worried and concerned only shows what a great mom you are!

Just stop and think, do you think your parents never felt what you are feeling? I'm guessing they might say yes. And my friend, look at the way you, your family, your brother and sister all serve the Lord today - it is simply awesome. Whatever your pain, God is in control - there is a lesson to be learned, be patient and listen. It's really never as big as it feels at the moment.
