A New Lesson

Happy September, ladies! I’ve been so grateful for summer, but am looking forward to the changing seasons. I’m a bit curious, I guess I would say, to see what the future brings. It has been quite a year! At the same time, I know that the Lord holds the world in His hands, and there is such peace in that.

This summer has been difficult, and interesting. I’m still learning so much as a mom, and I’m 20 years in. Watching adult children make decisions is so very hard…I want to swoop in and fix everything. But life doesn’t work that way. I clung to the verse, “train up your child in the way they should go, and when they are old, they will not depart from it” for many of my years as a mother. And yet, I didn’t factor in free will.

Ladies, I would appreciate your prayers. While I know that I’ve done my best to raise our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord, the pull of this world is strong for our young people.

The Lord has been so good to teach me a lesson in this. If my heart is breaking right now, how much more must His heart break when His children stray. Ladies, I wept the other evening while contemplating God’s heart. And Lord willing, just as His straying children do not speak negatively of His character, hopefully my straying child doesn’t speak negatively of mine.

Oh, how the Father loves and pursues us! I pray that you never doubt His love for you!

I have been encouraged to keep a quiet heart, and pursue meekness and humility while remaining in prayer. I am by no means a perfect mother, but by God’s grace I’m learning to follow Him more and more each day.

Im hoping that better days are ahead. He is so very good to us.

Blessings, ladies!

    I feel for you sister. Our oldest daughter is moving home this weekend do to some very bad choices. We have had her daughter for several weeks. My heart is broken , but G-d. I too as an 18 year homeschooling mom of 3 clung to the Proverbs verse. Prayers and hugs to you.

    May God comfort you and protect your child and may you experience the joy of your child returning to the Lord and to your home. Motherhood can get so hard but only the Lord can give us peace help and strength.
