I have to admit that I don't always find it easy to love my children.
It is especially tough when I'm tired from lack of sleep and the children are not behaving the way I would like them to.
These are the times when I know I need God's love the most.
Because God is Love.
He first loved us before we even came to know Him.
When I feel I'm running low on love for my children, I pray for God's Love to fill me, for His Love to overflow within me, that I may use His Love to love my children; to love them UNCONDITIONALLY.
As your baby steps into toddlerhood, and those ‘terrible twos’, they will experience a lot of changes.
They gain confidence and independence. Their curiosity about the world around them grows with intensity and they feel a greater urge to explore on their own.
They develop greater self-awareness and a desire to express and exert their opinions.
This is the time when it may seem more challenging to love your child because they become less predictable and less ‘controllable’.
I believe that, as parents, we should love our children unconditionally. Not only when they put on their best behavior, not only when they do the things we expect of them, not only when they follow our instructions to the 'T'.
We ought to love our children even when they are misbehaving, when they are throwing tantrums, and when we are tired and frustrated. When it is absolutely difficult to love them, that is when we need to love them the most.
Pin me please
That just like how God loves us unconditionally, God also helps me to love them unconditionally.
I tell them my love for them never changes, no matter how well they behave, or how naughty they may be.
Your child will naturally blossom under your love.
They will grow with a deep sense of confidence knowing that you love them for all their goodness and even when they make mistakes.
They will lean on you for unwavering support and know that no matter what happens, they can always run home to your love; your unconditional love.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16
