Proverbs 31 Wife – 31 Days of Praying for our Children

11
FAItHFulness:

“Let love and faithfulness
never leave my children,
but bind these twin virtues
around their necks and write
them on the tablet of their
hearts” (Proverbs 3:3)

Other translations say “mercy and truth” in place of “love and faithfulness” – so, let me define the phrases even more (I like to understand what I’m really praying over my kiddos).

Mercy & Christ-Centered Love – shutting out all forms of selfishness and hate. I have recently been working hard on this selfishness thing with the girls. So many times, I will ask, “who had the toy first?”, but does it really matter if Evylee or Kenzlee had the toy first? Do I really want them dashing for the toy simply in an effort to get it before the other? No, I need to be concerned about the motives of their hearts, so I have been trying to talk with them during these moments about being kind and loving with a desire to share, and amazingly, it has worked quite a few times! One of the girls will tell the other that she can have the toy and this is definitely one of those times that I give lots of praise in return!

I am a mom of 3 adorable kiddos born in 3 consecutive years. I juggle daily with work outside of the home, managing a family, keeping a house, connecting socially, loving and adoring my husband, and seeking to grow closer with my heavenly Father each step of the way . . . however, this blog will prove my inadequacies in all of the mentioned areas. Humbly, I pray that as I journey through this world of blogging, I will grow closer to my Father and others will be drawn to His feet in praise, as well.
