I’m always amazed by people who give parenting advice. Wait a second! You’re saying not only are you confident in this parenting gig, but you’re also so sure of yourself that you’ll pass your strategies on to other parents???
My parenting abilities are my BIGGEST insecurity right now.
I long for the days when “chunky” thighs and a disproportionate nose were my main concerns.
Times have changed and the stakes are higher.
I’m responsible for raising a human being.
There’s gotta be some mistake! It’s the most important job I’ve ever been given and I don’t have a freakin’ clue what I’m doing!
Even if I knew what to do, I highly doubt I’m be able to carry it out.
I thought that when I became a parent that love and selflessness would come naturally. Ha!
Sometimes it’s the opposite. I have to do battle with everything in me to give of myself, to lay down my rights.
In some senses, I think my parenting insecurities are completely founded.
I can’t do it all. I can’t die to selfishness. I can’t change them.
Praise God that’s not the end of the story!
Jesus can do it all. Jesus did die for my selfishness. Jesus can change them.
I know it seems like I always fall back on my faith in God’s saving grace.
But guys, it’s all I got. And it’s all I need.
