Many times as a parent we want to fight our childrens' battles. And yes, when they are young that instinct is maternal. Meaning God instilled in us that our children are defenseless against the world and it's Babylonian ways. During this time with our children we teach them the skills it takes to make it on their own.Some of us are better at this then others. We do the best we can. Once our child leaves the "nest" they are pretty much old enough to do for themselves. There are children/adults, out there,who are experiencing hard times. We were never equip to deal with, teach, or make the best of STRESS. This is where the warrior gene comes in. If we can sit quietly when stress appears in it's ugly forms, we can become proactive. We can become smart in realizing that STRESS is not our fault. We can fight off our inner demons. I have realized over the years that it takes the mighty power of God to do this. When stressed. When angry. When you are about to cry pray this: God please help me to abide by these verses. Ephesians 4:26,27 God says that, in your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.
Ephesians 4:31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Lord I ask this in Jesus name amen.
