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.
- 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.
