Now that I am able to share my thoughts more openly, It is my desire to really reach people who can cling on to the messages if possible for prevention, upliftment, inspiration and especially to women who might be in similar situations. Know that you are not alone, don’t be ashamed because, you are not the first nor will you be the last in such situations. If you want better you have to have faith and know that Jesus Christ is with you and will never forsake you.
I want to encourage bioloigical parents, guardians, adoption parents, and foster parents to not give up on your children. Children are blessings from God. Psalm 127:3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. As a parent it is your obligation, your full duty to nurture, train, educate, feed, supervise, discipline and love your children in all circumstances and situations throughout all the ages and stages of life. To love them is to do what is right and best for them. You are your children biggest cheerleaders, mentors, educators, role models. Each child will have their own personalities for we are all uniquely created. They will develop and grow into teenagers and adults, to become what you have trained them to be.
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Training begins at birth. To become a parent, you need to educate yourself about what it is to be a parent. You cannot decide that you want a child now and later when there is a child in your life then you don’t want him/her, or that you don’t want to be a parent no more. Being a parent is a life long responsibility. It is not doing it for 15 years and then it end. One of the most important things you can do to secure the life of a innocent child, is know that you are ready. Pray about it because,once conceived you must understand that God is ready to take you on a new adventure. In many cases, a once in a life time adventure. Also, If you are a guardian, foster or adoption parent it is of equal importance to understand what it mean and require to be a parent. Put Jesus First in your life, read the Holy Bible for knowledge and implement it’s guidance.
A sudden reaction, A spur of the moment verbal communication, one bad decision, one word, one action can have a lifetime effect on your child. Take time to pray for your children. Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to intervene in situations, to cover your home, words, actions and life with the blood of Jesus. Listen for the answers.
Love you all!
