Don't Grandparent Alone - Trust God to Take Care of Them

As grandparents we absolutely have to trust God to take care of our grandchildren and grown children. While there are many things we are able to do to hand down the faith, there are also many things we are not able to do. Thankfully, God is able and willing to do everything!

Yes! God is able to take care of the ones we love - and since He loves them even more than do we, He is willing to take care of them as well. This truth is essential for us to remember, so we do not make the mistake of trying to grandparent them alone. Do not limit what God will do by pushing Him out of the way and thinking it all depends upon you. It does not.

Now, having said this, it does not mean there is nothing for us to do - there absolutely are many things for us to do. We are able to pray for and with the ones we love, tell them how God has shown His faithfulness to us in the past and the ways He answers prayer now, share the truth about how God is real and the Bible is true - these are just a few ways for us to hand down the faith.

It is important for us to remember God is able and willing to do what the ones we love need. It is also important for us to remember there are things for us to do as well. We need to equip ourselves, so we are able to do our best when it comes to handing down the faith. This is the reason for Grandmas with Heart - please continue to make this a source for resources to equip you and share it with the grandparents/parents you know. It is also important for us to use books/tools to help us in our walk and which will enable to us better hand down the faith. Mother's Day is just two weeks away - yes, it is nearly here. Consider giving a book to the Mothers in your life - check the titles written by the Grandmas with Heart - you will find them at this link

Don't grandparent alone - trust God to take care of the ones you love and then focus upon doing what you are able to do to hand down the faith.
