What a Friday! Here’s the quote of the day (or maybe the year!!)
Mommy, can we do God-time together ‘cuz I want my life to change
Here’s the story. Our youngest has really been struggling lately with a negative attitude. Thursday evening into Friday morning were more of the same. I (key word here) had done everything I (key word) knew how to do to get him to change that, including praying, quoting scripture I thought would help, disciplining, etc.etc.
Enter God. I called Tim to pray with me, but before we could connect, David heard these verses as Michael said his Bible memory passage for the week:
Michael said, “What about someone who’s blind?” I explained that this passage isn’t talking about your actual eyesight and whether or not you need glasses. It’s talking about your focus. If you focus on what’s good, you’ll shine with God’s light. If you don’t you won’t. Then I told David how his focus on the negative was bringing darkness into his life, but God wanted him to be full of light. (Trust me, this is ALL the Holy Spirit working here, not me! I already told you I‘d done everything I knew to do!)
A few minutes later, David came to me a little teary-eyed and said; Mommy, can we do God-time together ‘cuz I want my life to change. Unbelievable!! God took a passage I never would have chosen to accomplish the purpose He had for David – changing his heart. Because God’s Word is
- Sharper than a 2-edged sword
- It does not return void
- It accomplishes the purposes God has for it.
- Every bit of it. Every time.
I am in awe!! I wish you could have seen the change in David for the rest of the day. Of course he still had some struggles, but the overall attitude change was literally the difference between night and day (how perfect is that, considering the verses God used!) Like I said, I am in awe! We have an amazing God!!
