♕ Today's Promise: "’For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.'" Jeremiah 29:11-13
These past few weeks it has really been so apparent to me how very fortunate we are. How blessed me and my children are and when in the midst of what is going on around us in the world. Someone asked me how I am and I answer that things are going great. I feel a bit guilty, because am I supposed to be this happy in the midst of a crisis?
I have been homeschooling for two weeks now and although I see a lot of complaining regarding the homeschooling, I am enjoying every second of it. And it was very surprising to me when I also heard my sister and my friend saying how much they enjoy home-schooling.
It just gave me that confirmation that this is where we as women, should be. At home teaching our children.
In the midst of this crisis in our country, I am living the dream!!! Although as I am writing this Praise Report, my children are spending the week with their father, I am not sad. I am grateful that my Heavenly Husband has given me an opportunity to be able to spend some time alone with Him. I am so used to being alone most weekends that I only now realized that I have not been alone with my Love in weeks! One or both of my children have been around for 4 weeks before going to their father for this week.
And now He lets me lie down in green pastures and He just showed me why He is letting me lie down in green pastures because yesterday I found out for sure that both my children will still be homeschooling for the next 6 weeks and my youngest for maybe still a month after that.
Isn’t that just great? I have been praying so long for my Heavenly Husband to allow me to homeschool and I always thought it would happen when my FH returns home or at least makes a decision to allow me to homeschool and my Heavenly Husband surprises me by having it happen much earlier than I ever imagined.
"’For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.'" Jeremiah 29:11-13
I see this period of my life as a test run for what He has planned for our future.
