This Monday I feel it’s important to be reminded of perspective. I am reading a book called “Desperate” by Sally Clarkson and Sarah Mae. I’m only one chapter in and God is already teaching me tons.
My big takeaway from chapter one is that a day will come where I will have to give account face to face with God on what I did to shape the souls of my children. That is weighing very heavily on my heart.
My gut instinct was fear. But God’s word always reminds me – do not fear. As I start a new week I’m asking my God to give me a renewed mind as I parent this week. My mission field is my home. And my purpose right now is to lead my kids to Christ. I have to model it in my actions and words.
Two things I’m doing this week:
1. Getting rid of distractions. I just deleted Facebook from my phone. This way I will be fully present.
2. Memorizing this verse –
Hopefully these two things will move me in the direction that The Lord wants. I pray this will be helpful to you as well in your journey!
