Parenting on My Knees

Parenting on My Knees

Play

I woke up at 2:15 this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep. Hi, I’m Renee Swope for Proverbs 31 Ministries.

My mind was tossing and turning with concerns and prayers for my son who’s going through a hard time. It’s all part of being the mom of a teenager. I’d prayed for him before he went to bed, asking God to be real to my son. I’d asked God to protect his heart and mind and to help us navigate this new parenting phase as our son becomes the man God created him to be.

I fell asleep praying and woke up praying.

I know I can’t talk my child out of how he’s feeling. I can’t give him a promise from the Bible and expect it to make him happy. I can’t deny or figure out what he’s going through. The best thing I can do is pray, and love him. And pray some more.

I have a feeling I’m gonna be parenting on my knees a lot these next few years.
