4 Bible Verses About Peace, Healing and Inspiration
by Woman's Day US
There's a saying that rings true for all parents: Having a child is like having your heart walking around outside of your body.
As any mother or father knows, the process of raising a child is rich with emotions, uncertainties, joys, and sorrows.
Whether you're a parent, expectant parent, or grandparent, there's an endless well of comfort, advice, and quotes about gratitude to be found in the Bible.
After all, we're all children of God, so it's no surprise His Word is full of parenting wisdom, and understanding, when it comes to the unconditional love (and, also: the worrying, discipline, second-guessing...) that goes into caring for another human. If you're looking to celebrate a new mom with baby shower ideas, these words might offer just the encouragement she needs, and they're just the thing to jot down in a card coupled with a gift for a new mom. They're also worth taking note of for yourself, for those days when you need a little reassurance that you're directing your child-your heart-down the right path.
|1 Proverbs 22:6
"Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it."
|2 Isaiah 54:13
"All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children."
|3 Proverbs 1:8-9
"Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck."
|4 Psalm 127:3
"Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him."
