These are all great social websites that I enjoy, but they can also give Satan a way to bring me down. I find myself, along with many other mothers, comparing Beckham to “what’s normal.” Is he good at tummy time? Is he rolling over soon enough? Is he late in sitting up? Etc… Bringing on a lot of worry.
I am proud to say, Satan is losing!!! I think it’s silly that parents want their child to do everything before every other baby, but I do understand it. It’s a proud moment when your child succeeds at any type of milestone. The more I have thought about it, I realize it really does not matter as long as they are progressing. I began to realize, do we ask ourselves when somebody learned to walk as a baby when they are an adult? Of course not…it really doesn’t effect their abilities in life.
For example, I started walking when I was 14-15 months (I was abnormally large)….and my #1 talent in sports was my speed! And I did well in school, so it did not mean I wasn’t as smart as someone who walked at 9 months either.
Psalm 37:5 says “Commit thy way way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he will bring it to pass.” Since I am committed to the Lord, I trust he will take care of B and have him “sit up” when he needs to sit up! Lol.
I am thankful that I have grown spiritually in an area that has always been a weakness for me (worry). Thank you Lord for tugging at my heart and teaching me to trust you! And thank you for this sweet little face that teaches me so many great things.
