Then as the kids get older and you have the training and discipline issues. You find yourself constantly asking the question, is this a behavior issue or character issue or is there something else that needs to be addressed? Seriously tough to answer questions as you try to figure out what is in the best interest for that child. Constantly asking yourself if what you are doing is right or should you change it up. We are bombarded everyday with decisions that directly impact our kids and we really never want to make the wrong decision.
But I have learned to not be afraid of messing up. I know that I am going to mess up. I am it’s just a fact. I am not perfect and sometimes the decision I make may not be the right one. However, I know that God will be there to help me make the right decision and help me fix it when I do mess up. I pray every day for the wisdom I need to be able to teach and guide my kids in the way they should go. I have learned that one of the most important tools I need in my mommy belt is wisdom and that wisdom only comes from God.
Proverbs 2:6-7 (HCSB) For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding. He stores up success for the upright; He is a shield for those who live with integrity.
Proverbs 13:10 (HCSB) Arrogance leads to nothing but strife, but wisdom is gained by those who take advice.
Proverbs 24:3 (HCSB) A house is built by wisdom, and it is established by understanding;
Proverbs 14:1 (HCSB) Every wise woman builds her house, but a foolish one tears it down with her own hands.
