Your old self is buried and gone. You are a glorious new creation in Jesus! So walk forward in faith, confident in what God has done and continues to do to make you who you are meant to be.
The to-dos of the days are done. You're home from work, the kids are fed and in bed, and you finally have a minute to breathe. Let God breathe into you.
Our children need to grow into their own unique selves, not simply to be an extension of us. Otherwise, it becomes more about our unfulfilled wishes.
