As hard as it is, don’t be discouraged in your child’s maturity progress. Every child develops at a different rate. Ask any farmer and they will tell you: seeds – generally – grow – slow. As you patiently wait and water, (often with your tears,) you can expect a good harvest. Proverbs 31, is not an impossible dream, but an example of seeds planted well, and in due time, a harvest was reaped. Read those verses before you sleep tonight, and be encouraged.
Lovingly ~ Mama
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. (Proverbs 31:28,29, NKJV)
