With everything going on in our crazy world today, I think any mother out there has contemplated "bubble-wrapping" her children to keep them safe. I know this is crazy, but I honestly can't turn on the news and not want to look into how much it would cost to "bubble-wrap" my kiddos! Between, school massacres, terrorist bombings, high crime rates, it's no wonder parents are thinking of all the ways - those that make sense and those that a bit extreme - to protect their kids. Add to this fear, the fear of your child starting high school or beginning to date and you can turn into a crazy lady!
Anxiety has robbed me of some incredible opportunities and I have decided this year that I would not let that happen. It seems my "Courageous" declaration has fallen into the hands of the enemy. But I will let that stop me! I know I can't "bubble-wrap" my kids or keep them from hearing all the bad stuff out there, but I can love them and protect them as best as humanly possible and realize that they are on "loan" to me from our mighty Creator.
So, take a moment and say a prayer over your children, constantly praying over them does not bother God, He loves to hear how much we love the blessings He has given us.
This is my constant prayer for my blessings:
"Dear Father God, Please keep a hedge of protection over my children, let no evil come to them, let no harm befall them. Surround them with your host of mighty warrior angels to protect and guide them. I ask them in your precious Son's holy name, Amen.
What's your prayer for your children? Would love to hear it.
