Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. – Ephesians 4:2 NIV
It is easy to lose our patience, especially with a toddler. It takes extra effort and prayer to protect our little ones. Their brains are still developing so they can’t reason the same way an adult does.
The Lord knows what we need. He knows what we want and the difference between our wants and needs. He never gives us more than we can bear.
Gentleness comes from being in a grounded and restful place. It is not so easy when an energetic toddler is running around. We have to be grateful for the opportunities we have to rest. Amen.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. – Isaiah 40:30 NIV
Sometimes it seems like my toddler has an endless supply of energy, but on a rare occasion, he sleeps in and gives me a quiet, peaceful morning to slowly wake up.
It is during those quiet moments of prayer and meditation that I find that the Lord restores my strength. At times it feels like I am always tired, but I know that the Lord will restore my energy in His time.
He may require me to make some lifestyle changes, such as improving my diet and drinking more water.
Health and self care takes some planning and discipline, but the Lord gives us motivation to make positive changes. Amen.
