When you say yes to
something there is less
of you for something else.
Make sure your yes
is worth the less.
So I have prayed and waited and through the realization of our wise Heavenly Father, I have realized I want more of this (pictured) and less of that. I want more time with them, less busy, less going, and more influence from the parents who God has instructed these children with.
If any of you lack wisdom,
let him ask God, who gives
generously to all without reproach
and it will be given to him. (James 1:5)
Why do I allow my fears and doubts to overtake me, to allow me to question what the Bible says is meant, that God will instill in Corey and me the wisdom to guide our children in the way they are to go. We pray for them, then question if we have the ability, the resources, the fundamentals to actually train them for this world.
As I searched through scripture, seeking wisdom in what felt like a fog of, "how do I do this?" "what is best for these people you instructed me with?," I kept coming to this verse,
"If you hold to my teaching,
you are really my disciples.
If they learn nothing else from me in these sweet, vulnerable years that I have with them, my hope is that I teach them to become disciples of Christ, to practice humility, to ask for wisdom, to give patience, to gain self-control, develop perseverance and to cover themselves with the armor of God.
With all that I am, with all my failings, with all that I seek, what really matters is the influence God places on my heart for these 7 beings He has given us.
The acid of over-activity eats holes in our souls.
From those holes leaks the cry of the
calling that never quite happened.
