  • 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

There are things that are going on in my life and in the lives of those close to me that warrant specific and continuous prayer. I fall asleep praying; I pray when I awake any time during the night; I pray before I get up; and I pray while I walk through the day.

 

Here's the deal, though, I realized that my prayers are coming like rapid gun fire. I am shooting my prayers to the heavens, da-da, da-da, da da-da. I am like a frantic prayer warrior. Today for the second time, because, unfortunately, the first time didn't stick, I was gently reminded to sit still and be quiet for a minute. I had to ask myself, if God did answer my prayers, if He was to give me direction, how would I hear it over my own chattering? 

"Be still, and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10

 I am meant to enter into conversation with God which means sometimes I talk, and sometimes I listen. So as the reminder was impressed upon me this morning, I tried to quiet myself down and listen, but I am telling you it is going to take effort. As quickly as I could sit silent, I would start in again...da-da, da, da-da.

 

Apparently, I have strayed away from the practice of being still, and I am going to have to become purposeful if I am going to turn this around. I need to commit to spending time on my knees - just listening. I am confident God knows what it is I need. Heaven knows I have relentlessly told Him who, what, where, and when of my everyday situations, and the truth is that He knew before I even asked.

 

Goodness, I feel like a prayer toddler right now.
