Just Ask

This post kind of goes along with the last one, “Read the Manual,” so if you haven’t read that one, be sure to!

I don’t know how many times since I’ve been a mama, I’ve said something to the effect of, “Where are the instructions?” or “This child didn’t come with instructions!” I really am that person who likes to know what to expect and how to fix problems when they arise. I know that all the answers I need are in the Bible, but I have jokingly wished a few times for more specific instructions, such as how to get a kid to wash her hair without screaming or how to deal with the potty-training fun. I know that sounds really silly, but with all the crazy information out there to cloud my judgment , sometimes it’s hard to discern the best way to handle a situation.

But this is where the verse for this post comes in (James 1:5). All I have to do is honestly ask for the Lord’s wisdom in any given situation. When I earnestly pray and listen for the guidance of the Holy Ghost, everything goes a lot better than when I try to reason it out by myself or only with the “help” of google. A lot of times, I just need to be still and let the Lord show me what my little girl needs.

I know this is a short post, but that’s all I need to say today. Maybe later I will get to share some specific examples!
