This morning as I reflected on her and prayed (while she was busy watching Curious George), I read this verse: "Establish my footsteps in Thy word, and do not let any iniquity have dominion over me." (Psalm 119:133)
Iniquity: sin, vanity, falsehood, nothingness (Oh how great would it be for that to not have dominion over her!)
Establish: to stand firm, steadfast, faithful
Have Dominion: to rule over someone, to give power over something
I prayed that verse over Sinclair. She is determined and focused. I pray that God will use those qualities for His glory--that she would be established and firm in His word. I was ruled over by falsehood and nothingness for so long. I would love it if she didn't struggle the way I did.
As exhausting as it being a mother is, it is an honor to be given the responsibility to raise this sweet girl.
