Summer's Promise

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

 Philippians 4:6-7

   As summer approaches and warmth fills the air, I find myself reflecting on the journey of motherhood. The summer season, while often portrayed as a time of joy and togetherness, can also bring a unique set of challenges, especially for those of us with prodigal children. As we navigate these waters, let's embrace a new flame of hope, turning our prayers into powerful instruments of change.

  Dear Moms, as we enjoy the sunshine and create memories with our families, let's acknowledge the silent prayers in our hearts for our wayward children. The summer break, though filled with beauty, can sometimes amplify the pain we carry. We may feel the grief of our wayward child more keenly during this time of supposed joy and fun. Amidst the harsh realities and unseen battles, let's not forget the power of prayer. It's our strongest weapon against despair and our shield of faith in the face of uncertainty. Our prayers have the ability to break through barriers and bring our children back home.

  As we put on the armor of God—girded with truth, wearing the breastplate of righteousness, and wielding the sword of the Spirit—let's remember that the battle we face is real. But more importantly, our God is real, and He is with us every step of the way. With Him, we can win this war for our children's hearts.

How can we turn our anxious wait into active warfare through prayer and faith this summer?

As we journey through this upcoming summer, let's stand firm in our faith, join forces with other moms in prayer, and celebrate every small victory along the way. Our hope is not in vain, and our prayers have the power to bring about miraculous transformations. Together, let's trust in God's redemptive love and await the joyful sound of prodigals returning home.

Dear Father we pray please help us to turn to prayer in all circumstances, trusting in Your peace to guard our hearts and minds. Thank you Lord for your peace that overflows when we surrender our anxiety and children to you.

In Jesus Name. amen.
