This morning I was struck again with the realization that I can do nothing to MAKE my boys walk in truth. But I can subject myself to God's word and thereby influence them . Ultimately the choice is theirs wether they will submit to God or not. So today I am again at the foot of the cross relying on the mercy of God. I am asking God to be merciful to them as he was merciful to me and continues to be. As I walk in truth before God maybe , just maybe someday they will take notice of the peace and joy that comes from walking in His presence and hunger and thirst for the same.

John 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.

  1. Oh so true! It is so hard to release our control and give them over to God. Yes, lots of prayers and obedience on our part as parents. I'm sure it only gets tougher as they get older.... sigh.

About Me

My photo
WE HAVE THIS TREASURE IN EARTHEN VESSELS THAT THE EXCELLENCY OF THE POWER MAY BE OF GOD. I am the wife Of Don and mother of two boys and a stay at home mom. My goal is to follow Jesus in all aspects of life but starting first and foremost in my own home.Titus 2:3-5 I stumble often and get discouraged, but am amazed as I go to my Lord in faith that he looks upon me with compassion, forgiveness and love each and every time. His love for me seems to increase as I keep going back to His throne of grace!! Of course I know His love never changes, but my ability to see His love increases each time He picks me up, dusts me off and says "keep on going Ruth.... I love you!" And because of His great love, I am falling more and more in love with Him each and every day.
