"I’m pretty sure my kids are insane..." - It's good to know our family is normal.
If you're talking to a mum with school age children who says 'But I need the time they're at school for myself', it's not because they're selfish. It's actually because they're often working hard to foster new depths of patience and love and wisdom for caring for their kids through this stage. Jenny Kemp

We beat on the text with our eyes and our mind and our heart and our prayer until it yields what God made it to yield. We wrestle with it, like Jacob and the angel, “I won’t let you go till you bless me.” John Piper on Martin Luther

Humble people cast all their anxieties on God. Proud people don’t. Proud people try to take matters into their own hands. Proud people worry. Anxieties are normal in a fallen world. Some of us have more or greater anxieties than others, but we all have them. The question is this: What are you going to do with those anxieties? God lovingly commands you to humble yourself under his mighty hand by casting all your anxieties on him because he cares for you. Andy Naselli
