Stop Feeling Sorry For Your Children For The World They Will Grow Up In

Instead of feeling sorry for your children for the world they will grow up in, know that God was intentional when he created them for this very moment.


Recently my brain has looked like a browser with 83 tabs open.


Mostly asking myself:


Do I even want to bring a child into THIS world?


What if they end up in a world war experiencing what Ukraine is?


What if we run out of resources and they starve?


What if others are mean to them?


What if they can’t even afford to put fuel in their car?


I know I’m not alone in these fears.


BUT as I was listening to a podcast today, something hit me.


These are worldly fears, meaning fears of things that could happen here ON Earth.


God will always have our backs, just as He’s promised.


And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus

Philippians 4:19 (ESV)


I realized I was being selfish when having these thoughts.


Selfish because regardless of what happens here on Earth,


God has promised that He WILL supply our every need.


God did not say not to have children because you are afraid.


He said to BE. FRUITFUL. AND. MULTIPLY.


And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” Genesis 1:22 (ESV)


Instead of feeling sorry for your children for the world they will grow up in, know that God was intentional when he created them for this very moment.


Instead of fearing for their future, be hopeful that they will change the world.


Instead of worrying about how they will face challenges, trust that God knew they could handle them just as he created them to.


Remember that your children are watching you.


They're sponges.


They can sense your emotions.


If you are scared for their futures, they will probably be, too.


If you are hopeful for their futures, they will probably be, too.


Instead of fearing, try reminding them that God has promised to provide for them.


He had great intentions when creating them to be both fearfully and wonderfully made.
