I love these verses from the psalmist. They resonate with me more deeply than ever now as I see my own children growing up so fast and transforming into young adults before our very eyes. I do think in a very tangible sense our children are like arrows we fit to the string and loose upon a dangerous world filled with perils. We are each called to do God’s work which He has prepared for us in advance. It is challenging to listen to His voice and discern His call amidst the cacophony of noises around us.
I pray our children will discern their own gifts and flight path in life, and continue to look to God for direction as their true “GPS” navigator.
Psalm 127:3-5 NLT
“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warriorâ€™s hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.”
