I used to take three of our kids to school in the morning since three of them were in the same school. Now two of them are in high school and my little one is the only one I take to school in the morning.
You have no idea how much I enjoy my morning ride with my son. On our way to school, my little one and I have our morning tradition where we listen to the Family Life Radio program. Before we turn on the radio, we always start our commute with a prayer. We pray turn by turn. If I pray today, he prays tomorrow. I enjoy listening to my kids’ prayer because it somehow tells me the depth of their spiritual understanding.
Yesterday morning was his turn to pray. He prayed and at the end of his prayer, he paused for a good 5 seconds or so and he closed his prayer in the name of Jesus.
I see that some people didn’t feel comfortable with the message of “We Accidentally Had Sex” post yesterday.
The only thing I can do is to refer you back to my earliest posts which may help you see what I tried to portray on yesterday’s post. So, here are some articles to read:
I hope and pray these articles help you see yesterday’s post message clearly. ///
Some of us don’t have a good track record. We have no story of the past that we are proud to tell to others, but the good news is “We were” sort of stories won’t have any bearing in our “we are” stories, if and when we are washed, sanctified, and justified by the name of Jesus Christ.
Listen to the Word of God: Continue reading Some of YOU WERE
If you are in Christ, you are free from the power of sin?
Listen to this:
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:1-2)
We are free from the bondage of sin. Sin can’t master us anymore because of the power of God that works in us. We escaped the power of sin as a bird escapes the fowler’s snare.
“We have escaped like a bird
from the fowler’s snare;
the snare has been broken,
and we have escaped.” (Psalm 124:7)
What can we say to this revealed truth of God expect to say, Glory to God in the highest, forever and ever, Amen! ///
It was around this season that my husband and I began looking for a good school for our first son (Abel). After we visited a number of schools in our area, we found one school that was close to my husband’s work. I was home with our daughter (who was two) and our little one was four or five months old.
Just like many married couples, my husband and I didn’t have any clue what it meant to be parents. So, we bought Dr. James Dobson’s books on parenting. Oh, how I bless Dr. Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family! I wonder if Dr. Dobson knows how many families, children and marriages God rescued, salvaged, and saved through his books and radio messages! May the LORD bless him and all who belong to him!
So, I always read Dr. Dobson’s book and I learned that I needed to pay close attention to my little ones when they begin to go to school. Why? Some little kids can be victims of bullies.
After Abel went to kindergarten for two and three months, all of a sudden he began to be quiet. I always studied his face in the rear-view mirror when I picked him up from school and I asked him different questions, such as, “What did Ms. Matthews say today?”
On this particular day, my son gave me very quick answers to all my questions turning his head to the outside. Imagine, my daughter was sitting on the left side, my little one was in the center and Abel was sitting on the right side. I couldn’t get him speak that much.
