Heading in the right direction
Many of us are feeling the change in schedule, school is beginning. It might be the first steps of a pre-schooler or kindergartener going into the brightly colored classroom or the last box unpacked in your child's dorm. It's a big change in everyone's lives. We as parents or family members have to trust they will be okay.
"When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don't throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer." -Corrie Ten Boom
We have to rely on our faith and trust even as we can't see the tracks before our eyes. In our lives, we aren't our own engineers, our Heavenly Father is. Don't you feel the weight falling off of your shoulders about now?
"But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the waterthat sends out its roots by the stream.It does not fear when heat comes;its leaves are always green.It has no worries in a year of droughtand never fails to bear fruit.” -Jeremiah 17:7-8
In this season of change, we need to refresh ourselves in the Lord and go fearlessly into the day, and an unknown situation where we have no control, like our children going in school, knowing our Father guides us. Trust Him, He has us.
I remember those first days of preschool. It was very hard to begin letting go. And even though my oldest is 32 I still have to let go. Mom are wired for holding their kids close. And you're so right. Letting the go and grow requires trusting God and agreeing to let Him have control. Sometimes it's not easy but it's always worth it. An encouraging post, Stacy. Nice job.ReplyDelete
Thank you Barbara. It's hard to let go, and let your kids grow. I appreciate your thoughts on the post. Have a beautiful day!Delete
Faith and Caffeine... I love it! Great post. All I have to do to know not to trust my moods is generally to look one day in the past and remember the roller coaster ride while God remained steady as a rock.ReplyDelete
Thank you Lara. I love your attitude. God is always there for us no matter if our life gets crazy or out-of-hand. Have a good night!Delete
