On Those Kind of Days

There are days that I just wonder if I am doing the right thing. Choosing to homeschool the kids rather than sending them to school or getting a job which gives our family additional income. There are days when I think we should take steps of change.

On those kind of days, I choose to pray and seek counsel from the Word of God. God speaks so clearly and most of the time, He encourages and leads me in the way I should go. I just need to pause and be sensitive.

On those kind of days, I also ask those who have gone before me in the road of homeschooling and ask for their advice. Support and knowing that others have been through the same crossroads help me face the choices I need to make.

On those kind of days, I choose not to be selfish but to think of Jesus, and afterwards, I realize that the choices I need to make are those that He would choose since I have surrendered my life to Him.

On those kind of days, I need to be still and trust in Him. Don’t let fear overcome trust and faith in Jesus.

When There is a Death in the Family

Last week was a busy week. An uncle of my husband passed away. Life has once again interrupted our schedules to teach us lessons we can never learn unless we experienced this season of our life.

Death is a subject matter  you can never fully teach, yes you can discuss it with your kids but the reality only sinks in when one goes through it. Grief and regret are emotions that one goes through in this tough situation and we only learn to deal with is when we face it head on. We learn and  talk about how we should live with the days that God gives us. We sympathize and care for the ones who are grieving.

This is also the perfect time to reflect on each of our lives. We don’t know how much time we all have left. While there is an opportunity, why don’t we refocus our lives to what matters most in the end. What legacy do we want to leave behind? What message does our life send to those around us? Are there any words left unspoken? Are we ready for eternity with God or are we still unsure?

Death is an end to a life on earth but it can also bring new beginnings to those left behind.

Christ is Enough for Me

On those days that I wonder if I should continue what I am doing…

On those days that I wonder if I’m not wasting my time…

On thsose days that I wonder if it matters at all…

On those days that I wonder if anyone remembers…

I choose to look to Christ.

…and I find immeasurable joy.

…and unending peace.

… and unconditional love.

He is the reason for all that I am.

He is the hope of all that I can be.

He is the love that moves me.

So I press on…

hold on…

and keep on.

Christ is enough for me.

Great is Thy Faithfulness

Stripped of your pride, nothing else will remain but awe of God’s faithfulness and humility. You will realize that everything is from and by the grace of God. I am just truly thankful that God is faithful and that I have witnessed His marvelous love time and time again.

Great is Thy Faithfulness Lord.

What Really Matters in the End

 

When we are distracted by everyday busy-ness, we often forget what we should be pursuing. Instead of pursuing what really matters, we get side tracked of material possessions, other people’s lives via social media and fame. It is when we are most busy, that we should take a moment to reflect and check our lives – are we living it according to God’s prescription?

Here are some reminders:

DO NOT WASTE YOUR LIFE.

DO NOT LET SIN REIGN IN YOUR LIFE.

DO PRESENT YOUR LIFE AS INSTRUMENTS FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

We should live day to day with the end in mind. And these statements should help us to choose how we are going to spend every waking day that the Lord has blessed us with. Because at the end of the day,  these are what really matters.
