I just cannot believe how much has transpired over this summer. From an emotional and spiritual standpoint it has felt like a whirlwind.
I’ve had highs in friendship that made me feel like a sister from heaven had been given to me and lows that tore my heart in two. Healing has come to follow. How great is the Healer! I’ve had stress over the house and prep for showings all to no avail… this was not God’s timing. We were blessed in the mean time with financial prayers answered for debt that we didn’t think would be paid unless the house sold. This comes as confirmation that the Lord is providing for us until He is ready for us to move.
We had a firestorm at church regarding the actual meaning of defending every word of the Bible as True and unbendable. Heated debates over the very foundation that sets up the entire Word of God. The tree was being shaken to loose those who were not ready to step out in faith.
Then we had new steps toward teaching in the church – apologetics was embraced and is being taught! A chance was given for parents who utilize public school to feel as if they have avenues out there to equip them with how to raise Godly children in a non-Christ centered world. Eyes were opened and hearts were softened to others needs and desires.
Now we are in the first throws of the new school year. God’s desire is being focused on. In daily activity, in history, in science and in self. Our thankfulness must come across with earnest love and appreciation for the salvation that we have been given. Even my youngest is so in tune to how much Jesus loves her! I am overly amazed at all of this. I am thankful and blessed to be able to view this through His eyes and not the eyes of the world.
Here is a cute graphic I fell in love with that Isabel and I will be using.
I encourage those of you with daughters to focus on just how precious and special they are in the Lord’s eyes as his daughters… His Princesses! I found two sites to share.
Now onto research the Lord’s Princes!!! Surely there are sites out there for his precious sons. Here is the final question… do we limit ourselves as to how we approach sharing the Word of God or do we just go for it and let the seeds land where they may? Do we worry about people’s perception of our God and our Truth or do we go and share Him without regard to being ‘politically correct’ to someone else’s beliefs? I tend to rush head long full speed when it comes to these things… my husband sees it a bit differently. Does it equal compromise? Or does it equal loving in hopes of relationship?
Love in Him!!!
