When life’s unexpected trials come into our lives, this does not define who we are. When we stand knowing this truth then our peace, security and true identity remains no matter what comes our way.
Let’s say, your child has made a “not so-good choice” in school and you are called to see the Principal. This is a time you need to know that your sweet child is still that sweet child but has just made a not so sweet choice. You need to know that you are still the mom who has raised a remarkable child. You are still an awesome mom rearing your child who is loving and good. Do not let any circumstance define who you are nor who your child is. This is just a time that a character issue needs to be addressed with your child and to be done with love in a peaceful manner.
There are times when we as adults make the “out of character choices” in life. We know we are caring and sensitive to the needs of others but sometimes there is a day or even a season when we do not feel like making ourselves available to anyone. This choice does not change who you are and it does not make you any less of a compassionate person.
It is all about a proper perspective.
