Prayer Journal: Day 232

Day 232

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:  For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. – James 1:19‭-‬20 KJV

Parenting a toddler can take a lot of patience. It is normal to feel angry or frustrated when children don’t listen. Their brains are still developing so they don’t always understand what we expect them to do.

For example, my little boy refused to wear his pull-up several times. This could be an indication that he is ready for potty training, but it is still aggravating to try to force him to put back on his pull-up. I felt like I spent the better half of the day fighting with him. Toddlers have strong wills.

Instead of yelling and getting mad, we can say a prayer for patience, stop ourselves before we say something not intended or apologize if we let something slip out. This, too, shall pass. Children grow up and we as parents learn how to cope with the hurdles with God’s help. Amen.
