One of the most powerful things you can do for your children is to pray for them. Intentionally praying for things like their safety, health, joy, and faith will bring peace to your heart. It will free you from the thought that you are in complete control. The amount of stress that comes with that level of responsibility is just not something any parent can handle forever.
Admitting you aren't in control is hard, but once you have exhausted all of the plans you made and ideas of how this life "should be" you will begin to develop an understanding of the where to find the guidance and comfort you need to be the best parent for your children. Sometimes God puts us in unimaginable situations only to draw us closer to Him, and this is when you will find yourself crying out like Carrie Underwood, "Jesus take the wheel!"
