Jill Briscoe — If only God would lean out of heaven…

If only God would lean out of heaven and tell me [my children] are going to make it, I could relax.  But God doesn’t do that.  He tells us to be the parents he has called us to be in his strength and promises to do his part.  Driven to prayer (after discovering that manipulation didn’t work), I began to realize I was only truly positive and confident when I’d been flat on my face before the Lord.
