Are you praying for patience? Is it not working? I have the secret.

Are you praying for patience? Is it not working? I have the secret. Have you ever prayed for patience and things seem to get worse? I made that mistake when I was a young Mom. Our third child we call the 'breaker'. He was HARD! He was almost the last Dayton! Dont ask God for patience unless you're willing to LEARN it! That could be why things are getting harder. He just doesn't hand over patience like a fairy God Mother, he wants us to learn by experiencing the hard things. Patience will make you a better mother, wife, and person...but it's learned. Having patience is the difference between a reactive parent and a responsive parent. A reactive parent creates an emotionally unpredictable environment. A responsive one creates a secure place for children to learn the life lessons they need to learn as they grow into adults. Do you have a really hard child? Are you open to anything? Ask for Grace! Ask for the grace to be creative, calm and responsive. Ask for the grace to be peaceful as God teaches you! And definitely ask for the grace to learn from others. The tips other loving Moms will share with you will be tips you pass along one day. I had a seasoned mom share this with me 25 years ago! TAG you're it!
