Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
– James 1:2-3
The Oxford Dictionary defines perseverance as, “persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.” As moms we are faced with many trials how we handle these trials shapes how our children will handle theirs. Our children our constantly watching us and listening. Like a sponge they absorb everything around them good or bad.
We tell our children to think about their actions before doing them. We as parents need to do the same. Give our frustrations to God! We should vent and pray to Him first; before responding to our trials out loud. In Him we will find the strength we need to persevere through our trials.
