Finding joy in the journey of parenthood
"Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from Him" - Psalm 127:3
"Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from Him." - Psalm 127:3.
As parents, it can be easy to get caught up in the daily grind of parenting - the sleepless nights, the endless messes, the constant demands. It's easy to lose sight of the bigger picture and forget that our children are a precious gift from God.
Psalm 127:3 reminds us that children are a heritage and reward from the Lord. They are a blessing to be cherished and celebrated. Each day we have with them is a gift, even on the hard days when it feels like nothing is going right.
As we journey through parenthood, it's important to find joy in the little moments - the snuggles, the laughter, the milestones. It's important to focus on the positives and remember that we have been entrusted with the incredible responsibility of shaping and molding these young lives.
Pray with us
Dear Lord, thank You for the precious gift of children. Help us to find joy in the journey of parenthood, even when it feels overwhelming or exhausting. Help us to cherish each moment with our children and to always remember that they are a heritage and reward from You. Guide us as we strive to raise them in Your ways and may they grow up to know and love You deeply. In Jesus' name, Amen.
