We Are Not Just Parents: Children of God

I came across this blog post today: “To ASK” and it inspired me to come up with this entry. Being an extra busy mother and wife the past few days, the feeling of exhaustion is starting to come over me. I found the article to be God’s reminder for me today. Reading this verse on the post made me feel like God was actually talking to me, telling me what I ought to do:

Matt 7:7-11: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!’

God reminded me today that I am not just a parent. We are not just parents. I am a child of loving and caring God, and so are you too! And my Father in Heaven is more than willing to extend his helping hand to me, all I have to do is ask.


  1. Janet,
    I’m so glad that what was whispered in my ear spoke to you! I love God’s game of telephone…always calling us to Him and reminding us of His undying affection for us!
