I have a wonderful group of kids! I have been thinking about them most of the day and what God has done in their lives… how He has used them… and praying for what He is going to do with them in the future.
The Bible says, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6, ESV). As a parent, leading my children has been my mission. It thrills my heart to hear my kids talking about the various Bible studies they are a part of. I recall my two oldest children when they were 3 and 6 (year 2000) inviting our neighbors to our church… then seeing those people show up to church as a result of their efforts!
Those two children are now 17 and 19 serving the Lord, praying, caring for their friends, having spiritual conversations, and seeking God concerning their future. My 12-year-old son recently told me he has been thinking about becoming a youth pastor. I’m praising God his heart is open to following the Lord! I looked over during church this morning to see my 16-year-old daughter praising God during worship… beautiful!!
My 4-year-old daughter has become a little prayer warrior. At bed time last night, she said she wanted to lead our prayer. She prayed for her little cousins mom who wasn’t feeling well. She wasn’t going to get to go to a family birthday party for one of her other cousins as a result. So, Chloe prayed she would get better. We received a txt message from her today saying she was better and going to the party!! Chloe was so thrilled and excited that God had heard her prayer and to see it answered. Just yesterday afternoon my daughter hurt her leg and asked, “Daddy will you pray for it?” I prayed. She stood up and said it’s all better and carried on!! I am was so blessed that her first thought was to pray!!
It’s a beautiful thing to see my family growing in Christ. I pray that God will continue to bless them. Tonight I just want to praise God for what He is doing in my kids!!
