The Christian Milspouse Podcast Episode 7
Let’s talk about trusting God with our children!
Whether they’re little or big, if you’re raising kids in military life, there’s plenty to worry about. You wonder what the impact of military service and having a parent in the military might be on them. You see them be the new kid repeatedly, worry over their parents’ deployment, struggle with another move. But you’ll also see them grow in so many ways. It’s easy to focus on the perceived negatives, but there are positives too: travel, confidence, closeness as a family and more. And let me remind you…God is not surprised by their circumstances. In fact, He loves them even more than you do.
Trusting God with your children’s future may seem difficult. We’re going to talk about ways to give it all over to God and learn to let go, as hard as it is.
Remember: there are no perfect parents, but God thinks YOU are perfect for YOUR children!
This week’s Scriptures to focus on:
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”Deuteronomy 6:5-7
“You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.”2 Timothy 3:15-16
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”Romans 15:13
