Bring the Children to Me

Sometimes it feels like a mother's job is to worry over her children.  But Jesus wants us to bring them to Him.  

"Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them, 
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."  
"And he took the children in his arms, 
put his hands on them and blessed them." 
Mark 10:14,16

Charles Spurgeon put it this way, "We must never cease to pray until they cease to breathe.  No situation is hopeless while Jesus lives."

My heart was so encouraged by these words today.

Such encouraging words, Cheri!

Sometimes we don't even realize when we are fretting over our children!

Holding every thought captive to the obedience of Christ and continually bringing them before the One who made them isn't something we naturally fall into. (Fretting certainly is!)

It requires a conscious effort and yet it is the only thing that brings us true peace.

Thank you for such a great reminder. Have a blessed weekend!
