When your baby (or a nearby baby) keeps you up at night we get to choose our reaction.
We can choose, in our sleep deprived condition to love and care and pray. Choose. To. Pray.
Choose to care.
Choose to love.
We can choose to complain and be frustrated and risk slipping into bitterness against those we should be caring for and loving… and even a developing bitterness against even God.
Choose not to have a complaining spirit. Rather, choose to care for and love and pray for those crying babes wether they be 6 months, 6 years or 6 decades.
Don’t judge those don’t measure up to YOUR standard.
Rather, pray FOR them to submit joyfully to the will of the Father.
