Why the Bondage?

      1 Comment on Why the Bondage?

As I was driving home from the grocery store today, I was running the day’s homeschool events through my mind.
I found that I live in constant bondage of my failures as a homeschool mom. This is certainly not God’s best for me and my family.
Even when my days go fairly well or even great, I fall back to what I didn’t do or follow through with. I am condemning myself for something that I should be taking delight in.

I know that the Word says to “Cast all my cares on Christ because He cares for me” 1 Peter 5:7, but what I many times fail to remember is the verse before it (v6) that says, “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time”.

I am not humbling myself under God’s mighty hand. I’m trying to live my life, and my childrens’ lives by my own power. In doing that, it’s an automatic failure.
If I am humble, and am obedient to cast all my cares on Him, then my childrens’ education will flourish and blossom into what He plans for it to be.

Thank You my gracious Father that You reveal Yourself to me through Your Word. It is life and health to my bones. Lord, I choose the life that You laid out for me. Your plans are my plans. In Your wonderfully awesome name I pray. AMEN!
