There are definitely varying seasons of life in which the Lord allows us to walk through.
Some tougher than others.
Some uncertain than others.
Some sweet and peaceful than others.
Some lonelier than others.
Some just chaotic than others.
The one thing I have to continually remind myself and be reminded of by the Holy Spirit is that the Lord sees, knows and is with me. He is Emmanuel.
Remind myself that those things that pass *through* my life are those things which are to develop patience within me and to make me strong according to His Word.
And things that HE has permitted. Hhmm?
“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;”
1 Peter 5:10
“And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”
However, in all that…… HE sees me where I am at, what I am walking through that day and is aware of my failures, short comings and struggles.
The Lord reminds us in HIS word that we are of much more value than a bird of the air in which HE CARES FOR CONTINUALLY!
The Lord of all the universe is attentive to each bird of the air. (think on that)
So why wouldn’t HE constantly have me on HIS mind?
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
I pray that as we remember these things, may we each take a moment to think upon them soberly because they are indeed Thought Provoking for this Thursday. 🙂
The Lord is with you homeschooling friend. 🙂
The Lord has HIS Eyes upon you!
And you and I should CONSTANTLY get this feeling that we are being watched.
Because we ARE!!
By our Heavenly Father! The One we serve, love, honor and obey. 🙂
Blessings to you in abundance.
