♕ Today's Promise: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or what person is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf of bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? So if you, despite being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! Matthew 7:7-11
The Lord is just fantastic! Sometimes it feels like my heart just wants to overflow with love and joy.
My children are still taught at home, but the school supports us. From the time we went into "lockdown", our whole parenting plan was thrown out the window, not that we always stuck to it, but at least the kids were in school, so they should have been home.
What has happened now is that the children are sometimes with my Former Husband for 2 weeks and longer and then sometimes only with me for a week. I never said no because I really believed it was the right thing to do.
My son did very well in most of his subjects, but Maths he did not do so well and it is usually one of his best subjects. I wrestled with the Lord because I did the wrong thing just to say yes all the time.
My Heavenly Man, as absolutely wonderful as He is, led me so beautifully. I am working through the book of Acts and the Lord has taught me so many things.
We must be so careful to walk the narrow path, but we can also know that if we have done the wrong thing, He is so merciful and has already incorporated it into His plan. You did not catch Him off guard!
Of course, this does not mean that you have to sin on purpose, but sometimes something happens and you are not sure if you are doing the right thing or not.
Despite the fact that I was already very close to being convinced that I had done the wrong thing by just saying yes all the time and thus letting my kids suffer under it, I was still not entirely sure.
I talked to the Lord and said that if He wants me to say no next time the children want to get homeschooled with my Former Husband instead of with me, He must help me, because saying such a thing can have many consequences .
The children were away on holiday for a week even though it was not a school holiday, which means they once again have a week's work to do. This is the second time this has happened and it puts so much pressure on the kids.
I asked Him if what was revealed to me was really from Him, should He please take the decision out of my hands so that I know it is from Him.
Wow, ladies let me tell you, He's so faithful! half an hour later the school let me know that they still needed a mark for my daughter for a subject and that she should please submit an assignment on Monday.
The decision was taken out of my hands!!! Praise the Lord! He made my kids come home this weekend without me having to say anything.
Isn't He just so wonderful in how He works and how He confirms things?
