Today I am tried, not physically but in my spirit.  Dealing with my daughter’s attitude and behavior.  She has said some very hurtful things to me this week, and yet I keep telling her I love her because I do so much, I am so drained.

It’s truly a spirtual battle I am going through right now with her and I’m exhausted.

I am struggling but moving on....trying not to give up and keep smiling.  I am trusting in God’s word which I stumbled upon today.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6.9)

    • Amen 3sa, the devil is so busy and our children just don’t understand how important a parent who truly loves them is. She is just probably going through a stage where she is trying to find herself as well as trying to be with the incrowd and not look bad in the eyes of her friends, we all have been there, but she also needs to realize that she heeds her mommie and that mommie will NEVER do her no harm and will ALWAYS be there for her and tell her the truth about all things, just hold on try not to allow her attitude to get you so upset and just remember the scripture you read and believe you me God is going to deal with her in his time. But continue to do and be the mom you are and have been to her she’ll come around, my prayers are with you and your family.

    • Kids, a mixed bag of joy and pain all wrapped into one. I only have a stepdaughter and I see my husband agonize over her all the time. He gets little glimmers of hope that she’s getting it and then one day and, poof, two steps back. Hang in there, and I know it’s hard to do sometimes, but the day when the words, “mom, you were right all along” will be that much more sweet when it comes.

      Hugs!

    • Being a mother I know that battle all too well. You are surrounded with all the energy that you need, but you must plug into Him. Call your daughter’s name out as you ask God for everything you need, every mood and behavior you want changed. Remember you are a great mother no matter what your little girl says.
