I am struggling with mid-life and with my children leaving home. The following verse really hit me today and I wanted to share it with you.
It’s so easy to think we are doing this, but when faced with life changes our true allegiances come out. Who do we really love? I am afraid that most days this verse is far from my mind and heart.
As I face empty nest and the many changes of life I pray that this verse is my guiding light, and that I will be obedient to follow God towards the new life He is making for me.
Matthew 10:37 “Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.”
I pray that I can be worthy, and that I will love God more than my sons and daughters.
In need of grace and all of God’s strength,
