Praying Scriptures For Protection

Are you the type of parent that swoops in and fixes everything? Do you try to allow your children to learn from their struggles?









I do not like to think that I am the type of parent that rushes in to fix problems when they come up. Oh, don't get me wrong. When problems arise, I want to swoop and save. However, I know, that my children are not going to grow into adults that make wise decisions if I always rush in.





There are two stories that I am thinking about.





This first one involves Taylor.



Mr. Texas A & M, himself,  :).




It was back in December. He had plans to fly to Orlando and meet with a friend for the weekend. Plans had been made, tickets purchased, etc., etc. Then, T and I find out later that, he missed his flight. He went to the wrong airport in Houston.




Since he is so far away, I was not able to swoop and save. He just had to miss out. However, this did provide a learning experience for him.




The second story involves Jacob.




Mr. Bass Player.  




Jacob has this knack of, misplacing things. He misplaced one of his cellphones and we bought him another one. When it happened again, he had to pay for it himself. Today, he has had to make do without his wallet.




Oh, that isn't the worst part. He almost ran out of gas and had no cash on hand to buy more. He called me expecting me to swoop and save him.











Sad little bird. First off, I do not drive. Second, the thought of having to drive stressed me to no end.




I told him that he probably needed to wait on his dad, if he didn't think he would make it home. However, there is, hopefully a lesson being learned in this. Keep better track of your belongings.





In praying scriptures, I picked Psalm 121 for you this week. So we can practice praying the scrptures for protection around our loved ones.





Psalm 121 





I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord , the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
