Write for five minutes on one word

Sometimes I lie awake at night and I think of their days, the days that will unfold outside of the umbrella of our protection. It makes me crazy to think of everything that could go wrong. Everything that could hurt them or reject them and some of the hard lessons they will learn along the way. I am just the mom, limited and finite. I want someone bigger, wiser, stronger and more able than I am. So I pray and I surrender their moments to His hands. I lie back and rest. I am learning to trust His ability, His timing, His plan. I remind myself of what He has done for me. Of what He has brought me through and the mountains that He has moved. I remind myself that He knew them before I did, will know them more intimately and for longer than I will. I will learn to trust in Him with all of my heart and to not lean on my own understanding.
