~ In Other Words ~

"Let us learn to discern whether the words spoken against us or against God or against the truth are merely for the wind--spoken not from the soul, but from the sore. If they are for the wind, let us wait in silence and not reprove. Restoring the soul, not reproving the sore, is the aim of our love"
~ John Piper from "A Godward Life"~

Being Still

I've not had much to say laterly. I've been spending time pondering my path in the Lord, my relationship with Him and my family and seeking direction for our homeschool. Things are changing for us in several ways and I want to be in the Lord's will and timing as they unfold.

I've purposed to make this a year that each day I stop and reflect on my purpose so that I am able to record the beauty of each day no matter if it's a good day or bad. I am learning to enjoy each moment, taking time to truly enjoy the now and stop worrying so much about tomorrow. I can't change tomorrow by worrying, I can only make tomorrow better by the choices, decisions and plans I make today. I forgot that somewhere along the way, when life pushed me down, but I'm standing up again ~ looking up to the one that holds my hand and the answers to all my questions.

My dc are doing well though I know its a turning point for them to and I'm seeking the Lord on how to stand in the gap for them during these changes. Whew! sometimes I wish someone had told me that the road to marriage and parenting were not easy and you 'd need to always be ready to fast and pray. I think they did, but I wasn't listening very well or it wasn't pretty words. ;D

I am endeavoring to be an example of His grace, love and mercy to my family so they may walk in the fullness that the Lord has for them. We are all on this same journey, sisters and brothers in Christ and I must remember that they will stand before Him to account for what they've been given to do here on earth.

Silent I've been, yes, because you can't hear when you're talking. I am to be still and know that He is God and that He has my life in His capable hands. I must be willing and obedient and I will eat the good of the land. Besides, what better way than to be still then beside a lovely fire on an icy cold day. Its very cold and icy here but I'm warm and toasty inside.
