How to Stop Being an Angry Parent
If you’re a mom of school age kids and you don’t homeschool you are either dreading the last day of school, looking forward to it, or are somewhere in between.
The thought of having your kids home with you for most of the day for the next two to three months may be intimidating if you are working on controlling your tongue.
Some of you are hopeful about the last day of school, have already accessed your instant download and plan to use the Summer to work through my ebook Remove from Me this Venomous Tongue — How to Stop Destroying Your Family with your Words.
I want this Summer to be a joy filled time for every mother reading this post today. I want your children’s days to be filled with joyful memories not days spent walking around on eggshells hoping mom doesn’t lose it.
When the Summer ends and your kids return to school I want them to be sure of two things:
1. God loves them.
2. Mom loves them.
You may be wondering how you are supposed to do this when you can barely make it from 3:00 when school let’s out until their bedtime without yelling.
Well I’m not going to provide you a simple and dismissive answer because there isn’t one.
The only way you are going to create joy filled days where you patiently mother your children is going to be by the grace of God, a willing and obedient spirit and complete surrender.
You are going to have to lay the women you are today on the altar as a living sacrifice and let the Holy Spirit guide every single solitary moment of your day.
You will have to surrender it all.
Your thoughts, will, actions, words and emotions to Him.
God and His word must become the filter through which you process everything you do.
If you are often frustrated, stressed, overwhelmed and at your wits end with your family that is a clear indication that God is not in control over that area of your life.
God is not the author of chaos and confusion, He is the author of peace.
I want you to win!!
If it wasn’t true I wouldn’t have wrote such a transparent ebook about my struggle with anger. I’m on your side and I’m advocating for you and your children.
I’m petitioning God for this to be the Summer where everything changes for your family. I don’t want you to live like you’ve been living anymore. I’ve been there and it’s like hell on earth.
I want you to be free from the bondage of defeat.
I want to help you get there. I am here to pray with you. If you leave a comment below with just your name, I’ll pray for you.
Do you want this Summer to be different?
Let’s do this.
Lord you know our needs before we even ask. That’s how amazing You are.
I am so glad that you are a God who is not afar off but You are able to relate to our infirmities.
I am so glad that You went to the cross for us and gave us an example of what it means to die to the flesh so that we can live at liberty in the Spirit.
Right now these women who struggle with patiently mothering are not at liberty and if they’ve read this far they so desperately want to be made new.
I petition You Most High God to do a miraculous work in them to where they know that it was nobody but You.
Thanks you so much again Lord for changing me. You’ve made me a better wife and mother. Thank you Father so much for
forcingI mean encouraging me to write this book and helping so many.
I am truly humbled and honored to be your daughter.
