Raising Children… Is Never Easy to Do

Raising children…
is never easy to do.
To see their mistakes…
knowing you made them too.
For you see their wounds…
that abuses of this world inflict.
And you want to protect…
but border on being too strict.


For you experienced the pain…
of feeling you are all alone.
Where you longed for love…
but none was ever shown.
And you searched for love…
in all the wrong places…
falling for lies and deceit…
among the smiling faces.


And you have felt the pull…
of hearts being tugged by lust…
and made the mistakes…
thinking it was someone to trust.
But your mistakes were painful…
as you gave your life to a man…
only to be abused and broken…
as your children watched firsthand.

For many wounds are hidden…
as even words cut like a knife…
with many victims being trapped …
in a painful, abusive life.
And our children are affected…
by abuse and even the divorce…
for families becomes “broken”…
and take on a different course.


For from 2 parents providing…
goes to 1 most of the time…
and financial struggles…
is what many single parents find.
And though an abusive spouse…
is no longer in a home…
the cycle of abuse continues…
for that is what children have known.


And some adult children…
find it hard to commit…
afraid to love another person…
resulting from their own parents split.
So raising children of divorce…
is not an easy thing to do…
as you see the signs and symptoms…
of what our struggles did to them too.


But all we can do is Love…
and for them be there…
as we lead them into adulthood…
with our newfound wisdom we share.
For mistakes will be made…
as it is part of life.
But finding the Key to overcome…
will help them overcome the strife.


For many finally turned to God…
when we’re totally broken down.
But what better Gift to give children…
than the Key to overcome we have found.
For trusting God is Key…
seeking His guidance every day…
for He knows what lies in each heart…
so we must trust Him to lead our way.

Dear Lord, only You see the wounds hidden deep in the hearts of all who have struggled through abuses, rejection, abandonment, divorces, etc. You know the hurt and pain that we have all felt. You see the fear that lingers in the hearts of many that they will fall into the same pattern and suffer the same consequences of those before. I lift all the wounded and broken up to You. Deliver them from evil and the fear and wounds of their past. .. that they will know that they have overcome through You. That a chord of 3 stands is not easily broken… and that You are the Key to overcoming everything in this world as they keep their eyes on You. Give them Peace that surpasses all understanding and lead them into their future with You guiding their path… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
