Simple Devotion

For Today...
Dear Lord,
I bring you my shortcomings... of always worrying about things I can not change instead of giving them all to you.
I bring you my worship and praise... to be able to stay home and take care of my family. Also that we are able to homeschool our children.
I bring you my prayer... to lead us through this uncertain time of raising a teenager. I pray that she would find you again and learn to lean on you instead of the world.
You spoke to me... this morning as I awoke to a winter wonderland yet again. At first, I was very quick to complain, but once I stepped back and admired your handiwork I noticed how beautiful our world is.

Good morning Jen! I feel for you with a teenager in the house. We're not quite there, but it won't be long, and I know those years can be tough. Just trust that you laid out the rails in their earlier years, and she'll come back.

Blessings my friend!

Boy it's gotta be tough raising a teenager, I'm glad I'm not quite there yet.
