Constipation Lesson

Constipation seems to be common in early childhood because many children do not like to drink water or eat a balanced diet. Parents like myself have to figure out ways to keep our little ones hydrated and ensure they eat a balanced diet. Watching a constipated child try to have a bowel movement is not fun. It is very uncomfortable. As I thought of the little one’s recent ordeals with constipation, I remembered the following post written about two years ago:

Since the introduction of complementary food, the little one’s bowel movements require extra effort such as grunting, sweating and crying. I helped him poop today after watching him struggle and cry while trying to get things moving on his own. The little one was uncomfortable because he was constipated and he needed help to get rid of that which was causing him pain and discomfort. I had to do something because crying while trying to poop isn’t natural. I don’t want to go into much details about what I did to help the little one poop. Wet wipes and massage were involved… The poop situation reminded me that God, the good father is in the business of getting rid of the nasties or mess in our lives. Sin, curses, wrong doctrines, and bad habits are nasty like poop. We need God to help us get rid of them. The Holy Spirit, our comforter is available to make life comfortable for us. We only need to ask for help like my baby cried out and moved my heart to do something immediately.  

I pray that we will not become comfortable with sin and evil in our lives. I pray that anything causing us pain/discomfort will be taken away by the Lord’s mighty hands. I pray that we will experience the comfort the Holy Spirit brings.  Amen.

I pray that the purifying fire of God would cleanse us this season in Jesus name.

Acts 15:8-9 ~ And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.

Would you like to become a member of God’s family? Please say the prayer below and let me know about it here.

Say this: Heavenly Father,
I acknowledge that I am a sinner. I believe you exist and you sent Jesus to die for me. I receive your love and forgiveness. Reveal yourself to me. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Amen

Welcome to God’s family!


  1. Amen. Thanks for sharing this important message with us, sis. ❤
    We also need to cooperate with Him as much as we seek His help. And He is ever faithful to attend to our call if only we will be willing and obedient. 💭

  2. Other factors can affect constipation. A powdered magnesium like the natural brand “Calm” can be added into a little apple sauce or warm water if they like it that way. (start small like 1/4 tsp once a day) It typically loosens things up in quick order so children don’t become afraid of having to use the bathroom.
    Praise God that He cleans up our spiritual lives. 🙂
