Feeling Loved and Accepted - Day 4

What an encouraging chapter to read. In today's world children, and adults for that matter, seem to be so overwhelmed with rejection and lesser feelings it is wonderful to know that we have something we can do to change this for our children. We can pray that they do not feel these emotions, and ultimately to teach love and acceptance to them by living like Jesus. The Bible makes it extremely clear how much God loves us and demonstrated it to us by allowing his son to die for us (Roans 5:8). Unfortunately, we know that at some point our children will feel rejected, but that rejection can be softened and quickly overcome by our actions and teaching them to understand the truths and power of God's love. Omartian says, "rejections brings out the worst in people, love and acceptance brings out the best." Isn't this what every parents wants for the child, to be their best. We must pray that our children are surrounded by love and acceptance and truly understand what love is.

We have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. - 1 John 4:16

Join me in my daily bible study as I read through The Power of a Praying Parent by Stormie Omartain.
