"CHILDREN ARE A GIFT FROM GOD", SAYS JESUS TODAY

As I sit in prayer for many hours, these are the following loving words I hear from Our Beloved Lord Jesus...

"To My Loving Parents On Earth",
You have all been GIFTED. Your GIFT IS YOUR CHILD OR CHILDREN YOU HAVE RECEIVED, WITH MY FATHER'S BLESSING. Not all on earth will have a child and there are many reasons for this. But for the ones who have received this great gift from up above, please treasure your children.

They truly are a GIFT FROM GOD, truly a gift from my Father! Raising a child properly, is the most selfless act you will ever do. Being a loving Mother or Father requires a great deal of sacrifice. To give love constantly, to a helpless child, to love your teenager, who disrespects you, to save your child from hurting themselves, takes great acts of love and courage. It is the most difficult job on the planet and yet so many of you choose this great sacrifice. Without your love and devotion to our children, the world would cease to exist. Your unselfish acts are what allow our cycle of life to continue. Thank you for your devotion in becoming the best parent that you can be.

Tonight though, I wish to comment on just how difficult it can be to raise loving children today. I can see all that parents go through each day. You are constantly giving of yourself. You each in your own way, want your child to be the best and that is very good. Shower your child with love first and then discipline. It is far better to teach with a loving heart than a stern one. Allow them to make mistakes, for remember they are children. Growing up is all about learning, even into adulthood.

Set a good example for your child. Talk with them, not to them. Listen to them. Be a source of comfort for them through good times and bad. Yell less and speak more. Raising your voice at home, only makes the problem worse. Try and remain calm when instructing your children on the way things should be done. They will listen better. Set good standards for them to follow. Be an inspiration to your children. Let them know, that nothing is beyond there grasp. Anything is possible with me.

I do not mean to criticize any of you. In fact, I am eternally grateful to each of you for taking on this super important role of parent. It is the most important role of your life. You are shaping our world. Each of your children will grow up and become adults. They will act and respond the way you have taught them. Continue to teach them well.

Remember, you are all children of God and we love you. You were entrusted to guard and raise these loving children and you are doing a great job. If you need help, please ask me. I can guide the hearts of children very easily. I am never beyond your reach, in fact, I stand proudly beside each of you. Celebrate life, celebrate being a parent, for it is a treasure from Heaven! I love you all".

Jesus Christ

enjoyed reading this post on parenting and loving your children, and the examples given, or instructions on how to love and discipline. i have four adult children ranging from 37-25. the oldest is not speaking to me and hasn't for over a year, and the youngest has been on drugs and much more. do i turn my back on them because of their choices? no. my goal is to love as God loves me; unconditionally and wait for the promises He has given to me concerning my children. I have trained them up in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not turn from it.

I loved this! Good instructions from God on how to parent. I for one have four adult children ages ranging from 37-25. The oldest has not spoken to me in over a year, and the youngest has been on drugs and much more. Do I stop loving them? NO! I continue to love them unconditionally and pray for them daily and remember from Proverbs 22:6, Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Dear Jane,
All we can do in parenting...is do our best. God knows all and sees all.

If we allow HIM to guide us with our decisions, then we will not feel so alone in our decision making and hence, be at peace with our self.
You are a great, loving Mother who only wants the best for her children. God knows this...
In time, we all learn, grow and can change.
Continue to go forward and I am sure that God will assist your family in healing.

God Bless and thanks for commenting.

I LOVE THIS!! I've been feeling like parents have truly just literally stopped carng about their children. This has inspired me and I will share it to inspire others who are parents..I'm one who doesn't have any children. I'd like to adopt but can't see it happening..but all things are possible with Christ!!

Thanks so much for your encouraging words. I was and am still a good mother always believing and hoping for the best for my children. Esp. for my son who has chosen not to speak to me. He'll come around. I have BIG FAITH on that one. Jane
