On this day of rest, I hope these words of encouragement for parents will give you strength, peace and joy.
It is comforting to know that the God who guides us sees tomorrow more clearly than we see yesterday.
Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.
C. H. Spurgeon
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:4-7 (NIV)
God doesn’t always smooth the path, but sometimes he puts springs in the wagon.
Guilt is concerned with the past. Worry is concerned about the future. Contentment enjoys the present.
God is looking for those with whom He can do the impossible– what a pity that we plan only the things that we can do by ourselves.
True faith is never found alone; it is accompanied by expectation.
C. S. Lewis
