Last week I took my oldest son to the airport. This was his first time flying alone. He is not the one to ask for directions, but I instructed him to ask for help when needed. The scariest thing is that he had to fly into Atlanta Georgia to change planes. This is one of the busiest airports in the United States. I knew he was overwhelmed. Therefore, I was lead to pray with him, especially since I could not be with him every step of the way. It really did not hit me until we went through the security check point. That is as far as I could go with him. I had to get out of line and watch him through glass locked doors and pray that he remembers everything I have taught him. I had to also put my faith in God and trust that my son would not get lost and that he would be fine.
This really spoke to me because I know at some point, I will have to let go of all my children and pray that they remember everything I’ve taught them. But most importantly, that they start to have their on relationship with Christ. My son knows that Jesus was with him that day and on the return home. He remembered the prayer we prayed together and he learned to pray when he is scared and anxious. My prayer is that my children know me as their MOTHER. I can’t not be their God.
Lord continue to help me with this process! Thank you Jesus for trusting my husband and I to be their earthy parents. I know they belong to you first and there is no greater love than the love you have for them! ❤️

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
