It Is Hard

Discussion in 'Family and Parenting' started by clearskies, Feb 25, 2013.

  1. I have been a Christian on and off all my life. Have got a 7 year old boy and a beautiful 3 week old girl.
    It is hard been a parent. The last 4 night have not been good. Not much sleep. I feel for my wife she is having it hard. The hole breast feeding is not going well, and not sleeping.
    Have been listening to Third Day, Children Of God (Tea break at work). I realise that I am trying to do it all bye my self and not asking God for help.
    Yes while I am try to get her to sleep I and trying to barging with God. It is not right
    It is going the be a new start.
    I am a proud man and don't ask of help.

    Please Pray for me to be strong.
  2. What do you think god can do or what do you want him to do. Is there anything you can do in this hard time. Maybe to just face the reality of the hardship might help more than a placebo effect.

    You can be sure of one fact no thing can go on forever in its current state. Things will and allways change.
  3. To give me patient. I set and watch the clock just tick by and know I have to be up soon. I get very cross.
    I also know it want got on for ever.
  4. May God bless and keep you....welcome...

    I know what you mean....

    ...God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them... And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

    Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. ...Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

    This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

    Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

    I am the way, the truth and the life.


    Jesus the Christ-Son of the Living God

    The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

    For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.But God commandeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    With Love,

    Paul-Apostle to the Gentiles
  5. I'm glad that you are making a change! And you said:

    Maybe God's trying to get that pridefulness out of ya :) Because we all need help at some points. And in Galatians 6:2, it says to "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ." We are called to help each other in times of need, but when we shut the out, that's pride and that doesn't fulfill the law of Christ.

    And also, if you have pride in yourself, that makes your relationship with God quite difficult. Why? Because we aren't strong enough without Him. If we don't ask for help from others, why would we ask for help from God? Because we do need His help. He's God and we are human and there are things that we cannot do on our own, but only God can. The flesh is weak, and we are all weak. And we need to humble ourselves enough to ask for help.

    And I"m glad that you are doing this and allowing God to break down those walls of pride!
  6. Hey Bradley be strong you can do it man. It will get easy. Believe me, & God as my witness ive bought up my two sons one 3 & half yrs old the other 8 yrs, on my own, i wasn't big on God back then i kind of had a fall out after our divorce but at times He must of knew i was due for a break as when my mother use to stop round at home and before she could finish her sentence in asking me if she could take the grankids for a drive i would have them both strapped in the car seats saying bye byes to them :ROFLMAO:

    You will have your moments bringing the kids up, but hey you have God to help, It got easier for me as hey got older. You can do all things thrugh Christ, whom gives you strength. Be strong!:)
  7. Just know that other parents have gone through this and are going through this now and so you are not alone in that ordeal and with Jesus being with you always, He will help you through this.

    I do not know if this site will help you or not: but these are tips from the Mayo Clinic about sleeping tips with newborns.

    There are a list of links on that page to topics that may help your wife in regards to breastfeeding.

    I'll send up a prayer for you & your wife too.
