Peaceful And Quiet Leadership


Dear God,

I am not a King or a Queen, nor am I even close to being a member of any royalty, or a person who has that kind of big power. However, I do have authority over DS and DD. When DH is not around, I am the only one they both look up to for leadership.

Lord, there are many times when I don’t really feel very peaceable and quiet. The kids aren’t peaceable and quiet too. Some days they can’t seem to settle down; they argue, or simply always disagree with each other, or they do not perform the responsibilities expected of them at home or perhaps reach their goals in their school work too... When those days happen, I feel that godliness is so very unattainable and hard to achieve. Seems like it is more of an idealistic thought that is so hard to reach, rather than the lifestyle that it should be. I can understand why some leaders become harsh and somewhat calloused toward the people they lead...

Lord, please help me to achieve and maintain godliness even on difficult, low days. Assist me and guide me in bringing peace to my home. Thank You.

...for kings and all those in authority,
that we may live peaceful and quiet lives
in all godliness and holiness.
1 Timothy 2:2
