My prayer the past few days has been simple. Lord, please let me view my children as a blessing and not as a burden. My to do list is long, my expectations high and I have three little ones who God has blessed me with.
So often, I find myself viewing them as little people who get in the way of my to do list, my expectations, my selfish desires. Yet, when I slow down and view them as a blessing… they no longer burden me and my desires. They are my blessing not my burden.
My prayer is to continue to view my children as a blessing and not a burden (that gets in the way of my to do list). I am sharing this with you, because I struggle with this. I love my children. They are a blessing. I know this. However, doing anything with my children is always a struggle (errands, groceries, simple chores, etc). They are not a burden… they are my blessing.
