I have not blogged in several years. But I have had the urge to do blog again more than once. It hit me tonight, when I was encouraging a girl to believe Gods words about her heart and worth in the eyes of God. Not to let others speak into her what is not from God. Hard to do at her young age. It has brought me back to memories of how I viewed myself as a teenage girl. I so do not want anyone especially a girl to feel unworthy. A girls heart matters! It can be crushed so easily. People judge on the outside apperance but God judges from the heart. 1 Sam 16:7
As parents we need to watch the words we speak into our children. I am guilty! Just a week or so ago, harsh words flew out of my mouth to my teenage son out of frustration with his listening teenage listening skills while driving. UUGGHHH! It has sent me to my knees in repentance. And asking my son's forgiveness. It's an ugly truth to admit, but it happened and I hurt his heart. Words can hurt, but words can also heal when they are spoken in love. I am thankful for forgivenes, unconditional love and second chances.
