I guess I have always been that way with my children. I have only meant to protect them and shelter them. Having grown up with a family of law enforcement, reality about the dangers of this world were real! Real stories,. real victims, real crime scenes… something you don’t easily forget. It doesn’t help either when you are street smart, and know what time it is.
I need to give this to God, I can’t control it, and I can take responsibility for my role in this scenario. I can continuously pray for their safety, wisdom, strength and guidance, and above all else, the Intelligence to know to whom to go to when the troubles come, God…. for they are coming.
One of the greatest gifts that I was ever told that is this, “We as Christians have the power given to us by Jesus Christ our Lord to command the enemy to flee from us! He must flee! Oh trust me, He will be back, but you have that power!
Penny for your thoughts.
