This past week God has been testing my faith in Him.
It’s something as simple as dropping a 3 year old to preschool for the first time…
except in my case it’s so hard. You see my 3 year old loves school, loves his teachers, loves to learn…
but can’t bear to be away from me for 4 hours.
He cries his heart out hysterically and only calms down after about half an hour or so.
Thankfully he has been blessed with amazing, loving teachers who hold and cuddle him till he calms down. But waiting outside his classroom (And no, I can’t bear to walk away from school) knowing he’s crying for me is heart-breaking.
This past week at preschool I’ve been learning to let go and let God take over. It hasn’t been easy but I know I’m learning to put my trust in God in a way I haven’t before.
I’m learning as a parent that I need to look at the bigger picture and not the situation as it plays out in the present.
As I look over the Parent’s Prayer given to each parent just before preschool started, I’m reminded once again to trust God to make me the parent He wants me to be.
And yes, rest assured that my little man is slowly going through his own process of letting go…
of Mama and exploring the amazing new adventure God has in store up ahead for him.
