Topic: Parent (11/16/06)
And it’s the first time you lay eyes on the small being that God has in trusted you with, that parenthood changes your life completely around. It dawns on you that that small child in your arms, the one that resembles both you and your spouse, will play a part in Gods history. No matter how big or small of a role, you are responsible for how they will show Gods love to all they meet.
For many, being a parent fills a gap in their hearts that they hadn’t even realized were there. Making them feel whole and incomplete at the same time - whole, because they’ve created a family, and incomplete, because they realize that their life is no longer their own…every move they make is reflected in their infant’s soul..
Parenthood truly is a gift…but the greatest gift isn’t the way your life has changed, but why it’s changed - the small life that you hold in your hands.
I wish you the best of luck…because no matter how scared you may be at the responsibility you have, you also have a wonderful blessing.
Do with it as God would please.
