Responsibility!

“Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.” Proverbs 22:6

I’m so thankful that Ellie is surrounded by friends who are being raised by parents who love the Lord. This picture brings so much joy to my heart. In this moment I am reminded that as Christians with children, we are responsible to point them in the right directions. This means We put Ellie in Godly social environments so that she can see the difference between a friend who loves the Lord and a friend who does not. We never want Ellie to believe that only “old people”can love the Lord but we want her to know that young people do too. In knowing and seeing this I believe she will build her strongest relationships with individuals who are close with God. We pray that in doing this one day she will fall in love with the right boy who always points her to Jesus like her daddy does for me. We often strive to place our child in the best environment for success. When it comes to our child’s education we place them in the best schools that will help them get the best career. We make sure our kids are on the best teams to help them become the best athletes. However, We often fail to push them toward creating relationships with individuals who know how to stay close to God when everything else falls apart. All relationships are important but as Christians we should want our children to play a significant role in this world and this means they are closest to people who point them to Christ.

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events! I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! This past January I made a promise to God that I would faithfully write a devotional each week. I wanted to have 12 strong ones to post by the end of the 2018. I hit 12 and decided to start a blog. I pray that you take the time to read what God has placed in my heart. I know He has something to say to you!
