I’m not sure what I was going through at the time of writing this, but below in red is my Aunt Betty’s teaching on letting our children go into God’s hands and into who He’s called them to be.
Betty: No child wants to be a disappointment to their parents. That’s why it’s so important parents surrender to the Will of God and to who that child is called to be, so the child feels supported by the parents. It’s not what we want. It’s what God wants for our children and the kids honest listening to God. That’s a death to a parent. You never would have picked to have two sons in the army. God puts in our children’s hearts what their service is, and we don’t have any right to interfere with that.
Don’t say, “I don’t have discernment.” Say, “I feel I don’t have discernment. God, I’m coming before you to learn how to discern. I thought this is what I heard in prayer.” I guess it’s your Perfectionist that gets in your prayer. Your prayers aren’t loving. They’re judgmental. It’s coming out of a rage at yourself. I wonder if it makes it hard to answer your prayers.
The more I’m in the Divine Will, the more I’m convinced that there are no accidents in life. When things happen, God has a plan and what we need is the humility to let go of wherever we interfere and cause confusion in God’s plan.
