God will give you everything you need (Psalm 23:1-3)
By Kristy Solis
Universally, we are all tired. Parenting is a full-time job with a full schedule of its own.
If you are like me, it is not your only duty.
Whenever I feel weary, I reflect and ask the Lord, “Have I lost my way? Is this the path you created for me?”
The answer may be “keep moving” or “this is the way.”
I have learned that a full schedule is a blessing, if what fills it has a purpose.
As my children grow, I sense when they are tired. I remind them “God will give you everything you need, not what you want.”
My girls used to ask me all the time, when will we have a baby brother? And I would tell them God gave me everything I ever needed with the two of them.
One day, my oldest daughter said, “Maybe God thinks you need another child.“
Guess what? I could not argue that God will decide what I need and what my family needs.
Let us pray to the Lord, “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, and he refreshes my soul.”
