  • Discipleship

    Raising our children and educating them could be described as, "a long obedience in the same direction." The longer we homeschool, the more we believe that to be obedient, to stay on the "narrow pathway" that Jesus described, we need the Lord desperately, and we also need each other.

  • Encouragement
    Encouragement

    Encourage means, "to inspire with hope, courage, or confidence; hearten."

     

    "Therefore encourage one another and build one another up." I Thessalonians 5:11


Wandering Wednesday:Encouragement

Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, 
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

-Psalm 1:1-3

All my life, when I read passages like Psalm One, my heart jumps and says “Yes! That is what I want to be! Oh Lord! Help me be like that.” And it is what I want my life to look like. And so I try, and push, and fall, and then ask for God’s grace, and he picks me up again. And in my own little pathetic way, and with God’s incomprehensible way, I have endeavored to live a faithful life. The be the “blessed one”.
But being faithful can be tiring. Can’t you relate to that? Sometimes you wait and wait, and wonder, when will I be like  a tree planted by streams of living water? That’s sounds great! But I feel tired. If you are in that place today, my dear outside world, I just want to encourage you.
