Proverbs 31 Wife – 31 Days of Praying for our Children

13 purIty:

“Create in them a pure heart, O God, and let their purity of heart
be shown in their actions” (Psalm 51:10)

Purity. Purity means a lot. A pure mind, a pure heart and pure body. As parents, we have a responsibility to monitor what our children put into their minds. As parents, we must teach kindness. As parents, we must instill in our children the desire to value their bodies at a young age. Grabbing a hold of our kiddos minds, hearts and bodies at a young age is vital.

I made a commitment to sexual purity in middle school and from that moment, I knew I would keep that commitment to myself, my future husband and God. (I also knew I didn’t want to endure the wrath of my parents.) That is one of those commitments that I truly value and pray with great expectancy for the same commitment to be fulfilled by Evylee, Kenzlee and Nate.

All of this to say that a commitment of purity is essential even when our children are young.

Purity for me is probably harder now as an adult. My mind and heart are so tempted each day, and I fail each day with moments of gossip, negativity, poor attitude, etc. As I pray today for my children, I will also be praying for me!

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.
