"But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God ...." James 1:5

Parenting Q&A

by Christa Bartsch
Pray for Wisdom in Parenting

January, 2008 

Well, ladies, with this being the first of a new year the Lord has given us, I’d like to encourage us all to take some time to examine where we are in our parenting and where we’re going.  Set aside some time to spend with the Lord.  Ask Him to show you areas in your parenting that He might want to change or improve.  We’re all in process!  Let Him lead you in this journey of raising your children to be God-fearing and God-honoring.  And as He shows you an area or two to work on and you feel you don’t know where to start, remember, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”  James 1:5 (NIV) 

Be encouraged!  All He asks of us is to be humble enough to seek Him and His counsel and He’ll generously give it!  Praise God!  None of us will ever be perfect parents or raise perfect children but that’s ok.  We’re not called to be perfect on our own but to be tools in God’s hands as He works His perfect will in our lives and the lives of our children!
