At some point in our lives we all go through sadness, loss, pain, illness, among many things. The feelings are affected and it is normal to live it. As parents we often do not know how we can handle and / or provide tools to our children so that they can somehow manage their emotions. What can we do?

  • First of all, pray! – I think praying is the first thing we must do. Ask God for help, wisdom and strength! We trust and rely in God’s care and provision to every need we have. And helping our kids with the emotions is one of them.
  • Second, get yourself some information and knowledge based in the Word of God. If you look closer and deep, the bible tons of help for the parents. Take a look at the book of Proverbs!
  • Third, listen and listen again! – Make yourself available to listen and pay attention to words and body language of your kids. Sometimes, they can express something and demonstrate other thing with their behavior. Pay attention!
  • Fourth, love and love! – Give them gestures of love, even when it’s hard to understand their emotions. Being present, providing a hug, give them security! Give words of affirmation always!
  • If your kids are older (8, 10, 12 or older) talk with them about your own experiences with your emotions and how you deal with your emotions in different settings. Perhaps, they feel identified and this helps them with their own emotions.
  • Don’t let them deny or avoid their emotions. Provide a space for ventilation. May they feel safe talking to you. Give them confidence and do not share what they tell you with other people who are not from the same family nucleus.
  • For toddlers and preschoolers, let them come to you in every need! – Pay all your attention to them. If they come crying to you, expect them with arms wide open. They come to you because they feel safe and secure with mom and dad! – Get yourself some tools like books of different topics (this have help me a lot) to explain to them according to their age.

As parents we must be available to our children and promote emotional health. Guide them using faith and the Word of God as a basis at all times. Have you implemented any of these tips with your children? How did it go?

3 things you should do to have the peace of God

3 things you should do to have the peace of God - As humans we seek peace in different places but not all places provide true peace as God himself gives.  Here I share with you about 3 things you should do to experience the peace of God in your life.

I remember the time I was in the hospital multiple times because of various miscarriages. The first time was strong, the ones that followed were difficult too, but at that moment I asked God for a lot of peace. As humans we seek peace in different places but not all places provide true peace as God himself gives. Here I share with you about 3 things you should do to experience the peace of God in your life.

Experiencing losses leads us to sadness, anguish and in many cases to depression. That is how I experienced it for a while, but thank God that he held me, I was able to go through the valley of shadow and get up from that place.

How I did it? Delivering my sadness to God (not denying the situation I was experiencing), but rather going through the process trusting in God’s care with me. They were times of intimacy with God, times of weeping before Him. Times of cries and intercessions before His presence. Trusting completely in Him!

As humans we seek peace in different places but not all places provide true peace as God himself gives.  Here I share with you about 3 things you should do to experience the peace of God in your life.
The true peace comes from God!

We can seek peace in other people. We can seek peace in our material possessions. But none of that compares to the true peace that God gives us. What you should do to experience the peace of God in your life?

3 things you should do to have the peace of God

If we study the biblical verse of Isaiah 26: 3 more deeply, we find that those who God maintains in perfect peace are those who do these 3 things:

  • Keep your mind committed to the Lord: When you are committed to something, you search diligently, you are persistent and you stand firm.
  • You are focused on one thing only: Being focused on God will help you not to blur or divert your gaze to another place. Become someone that is completely dependent of the Lord.
  • Look for the right place to take refuge: God is your safe place, your strong tower … is your place of refuge. If you take refuge under its cover, under its wings there will be security and peace for you.

You will keep the mind that is dependent on you
in perfect peace,
for it is trusting in you.
Isaiah 26:3

If you find yourself lacking peace in your life today … take a moment to analyze yourself. Do you have Jesus in your life as Lord and Savior? Have you turned your gaze to another place that is not God? Have you focused more on your problems or circumstances? Do you feel that your heart is divided and are you not fully committed to God? If this may be your case, there is an opportunity to return to the right place of complete peace. God!

There is no doubt that all these events cause anxiety and much stress in the world. This is real. And what it says in the bible is real too. 2 of Timothy 3:1 in the AMP Version says the following:

But understand this, that in the last days dangerous times [of great stress and trouble] will come [difficult days that will be hard to bear].

Many people are experiencing illness, loss, loneliness, hunger, among many other things. As children of God we are not exempt from this,we never have been. However, we are blessed to have the Word of God as our spiritual food to strengthen us, increase our faith and fully trust God in these difficult times.

5 bible verses for stress relief

  • casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully]. – 1 Peter 5:7
  • “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation]. – Matthew 11:28
  • “Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me. – John 14:1
  • I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.] – John 16:33
  • Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. – Philippians 4:6

Sometimes one of the things we do the least is go to the presence of God to seek the rest that he promises to give us. We pay our full attention in the circumstances and forget that God is powerful to sustain us, strengthen us and guide us in difficulty.

Trust God all your worries and stress and He will give you rest! #stress #God #faith #stressrelief #bibleverses

How to discover the glorious purpose and worth you have in God

How to discover the glorious purpose and worth you have in God - Many times we do not know the purpose and the value that we have in God. We have forgotten to look and read well the Word of God and how God sees us. It has happened to me many times. However, I always go back to the beginning to remember that God does have glorious purposes and I have great value in Him.

During this time that I have stayed in my house (like most of us), I have been able to take time to read the Word and several super interesting books. One of those books is called “Holy Guacamole“. From the moment I read the book’s title I wanted to know more about it and I was curious for the “guacamole” thing too! So I sat down to read in my spare time or while my baby was playing on the patio (#momlife).

You have a purpose and you are valuable for God!

This Carrie Stephens book, Holy Guacamole “A glorious discovery of your undeniable worth” brings with it great truths grounded in the Word of God. The purpose and value that you and I have in Him and that many times we do not even know.

This book is very complete on the topics of true worship of God, how we see ourselves and how God sees us. How to be self-sufficient, how to have knowledge in other things, being a perfectionism, being a consumerism and many other things cannot SAVE you.

Sometimes we focus on our own strength and forget that whatever happens, only God can save us. Of course, when we come to Him as we are. When we come to Him as we are, perhaps broken, sad, devastated … there God shows us what He can do with us and also shows us His purposes and how valuable we are in Him.

How to discover the glorious purpose and worth you have in God

Have you ever felt on the edge, alone, down and out, or maybe wondered what in the world God can do with someone like you? – Carrie Stephens

What if you were made on purpose, for a purpose that can release God’s glorious colors and flavors in the world? – Carrie Stephens

Loved this part of the book that says this (blessed me so much):

You didn’t arrive here by accident, nor have your been served up as an unwanted side dish. The God of creation has created you, and He isn’t waiting for you to become some better version of yourself so He can finally love you… or use you… or delight in you. – Carrie Stephens

This book brought me back to connect with the great truths of God (contained in the Bible) for my life. Beyond a recommended book, it is a great gem that you should have in your hands.
