As I was reflecting on God’s word yesterday, I felt great peace and amazement. I knew Christ was with me the whole time and He has reaffirmed in my heart that I should NOT LOSE HEART. Because I am not to look at the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient but the things that are unseen are eternal.
Choosing to continually homeschool my children comes with a price. A lifestyle committed to learning God’s word, developing our family relationships and building our character. It is never easy and has no end. But this has been the calling of God to my family and today’s time with Lord further strengthened this call in my life.
I may not have all the money that I want because my time is devoted to raising my children but certainly God has always provided for all my family’s needs. He has shown me time and time again, how faithful and reliable He truly is.
For the past years, Christ has become more real to me. I experience His leading first hand. If there is something that we want to do and is it for our good, then God provides for it. But if it is not, then God provides the assurance that as we yield our lives to Him, He shall guide and lead us to where and who He wants us to be.
As I am reminded not to lose heart — I also marvel at the privilege of knowing Christ through my life’s journey these past years. He has won my heart so many times with His loving and faithful ways.
As the apostle Paul says, “For the sake of Christ, then I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
