MY DAUGHTER WILL REFLECT MY OWN INSECURITY

10:28 AM




We don't have kids yet and we don't know what the Lord plans for our future with kiddos but we do know that we have desire to have them one day, no matter how God sees fit. 

.
I think about what they will look like, what personality they will have and pray for them often. 

.
This quote is one that has stuck with me since I heard it. It was spoken at my churches women's retreat over a year ago.

.
I totally think about my son(s) but I have tendency to think of my daughter(s) more. I think because I have just walked in their shoes. I know how tough it can be to be a women in this world and some of the battles, insecurity and strife they will face.

.
When they get here I CAN protect them as best as I can, raise them up well, pray with/for them and love them dearly (I already do).

.
You know what else I CAN do before they are even glimmers in our eyes? I CAN work on my own heart, insecurity and personal growth.

.
I think that it's easy to get busy making a life that's ideal before kids come into the picture but I think what can often get missed is realizing our personal lives, hearts, walks and conditions of our marriages are what effects our children most.

.
Kind of like preparing for the wedding but not the marriage mentality. Not good.

.
So ever since I have heard that quote and the Lord spoke to me in that moment, I have vowed to work through my own insecurity (in many areas of life). Which ultimately comes down to finding my worth & value in Jesus Christ alone, in all things.

.
It's a process, it will take a long time and will continue to probably be a life long fight. BUT I pray that my daughters (& sons) can learn that at a very young age by seeing their parents fighting for it and praying for it with them.

.
Praying for you babes and can't wait to meet you all one day. We love you so much already.
