The first step in overcoming our parental fears is to give it to God. The second building block is to be the parent that God has called us to be. Last month, we talked about focusing on God. Today, I want us to focus on ourselves. I do not mean we need to focus on ourselves selfishly. Like, we need to pamper ourselves with manis, pedis, and full body massages. I mean we need to focus on our personal growth and development.

 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” ~ Proverbs 3:5-6

The first step, or building block, in overcoming our parental fears is to give them to God.  We need to trust God with our kids.  I know that sounds simple.  I know it seems like the classic Sunday School answer.

There are seasons in our Christian lives when we go through dry times. There are times when we are depressed, discouraged, disappointed or even have doubts in our faith in God. The Christian life is full of peaks and valleys, highs and lows.

Have you ever been on a short-term mission trip? If not, you should go. Seriously. Put it on your bucket list. Going to another country on a short-term mission trip is a life-changing experience. Actually, it will change your life, the person who goes.

In Romans 8:31-39 the Apostle Paul instructs Christians that God is for us, and he wants what is best for our lives.  Through 5 rhetorical questions, the Apostle Paul reminds us of the incredible benefits of being on God’s team.
