I get so frustrated;

I get so mad;

I get so impatient;

I get so task orientated;

I forget that repetition helps learning;

I forget that consistency guides;

I forget that these children are only ours whilst on earth, a gift from God;

I forget to turn to the Lord during all of the above…


help me be patient;

help me to forget the task and remember the child;

help me to be generously repetitious with words and actions;

help me to be consistent;

help me to always remember the gift of our children – given by You;

help me to always remember to turn to You and seek Your face daily.

help me always to love above everything else.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
