he knew exactly what he was doing

I don't have to convince you that children are a gift. An amazing gift from God that He has intrusted us with.  My heart breaks when I see a child unloved, unnoticed and unknown.  Every child was hand selected for his or her mother. Every child needs, wants and deserves love. Every. One. Of. Them. I am daily overwhelmed with the blessing my child is to me. Sometimes it's a good overwhelming, and sometimes it's just overwhelming.  But I don't doubt for a second that this is the child that God created and trusted me to raise.

In a women's bible study I am doing, we talked about our children this week. The speaker said something that really hit home with me.

No matter how insignificant or unqualified I feel, God knew what He was doing.

Wooooow. That's right. On those days where I feel like screaming at the sky and asking what in the world He was thinking by making ME a mother, He knew. He knew exactly what He was doing.

When He created this spunky, strong willed baby who at 6 months thinks she's a toddler, He knew. He knew exactly what He was doing.

And when she is in middle school and comes home crying with a broken heart, and I feel helpless. He knew. He knew exactly what He was doing.

So mama, stop doubting yourself.  Never doubt your child.  Get to know them and learn why God placed this tiny human with you.  I think you'll be amazed at what you discover!

{"Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him" - Psalm 127:3}

Because, He knew exactly what He was doing.
