The burden, at times, can be so heavy. The weight of the world all wrapped up in 4 little big people. I know I am not in control of their future, even though so many times I pretend to be. I want to be just for today. If I can guarantee MY outcome.
But I know the Lord asks me to do this:
"Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." (Mt. 11:28-30)
So daily I surrender them to their Maker. Their emotions, attitudes and choices. Even when rebellion sets in, I can know without a shadow of a doubt that my Lord is in control.
He gave them as gifts to me. He placed them into our home. He knew the events that would take place in the years following their cute little arrival.
So I find myself on my knees.
And that is a good place.
