As For Me & My House

We have been working really hard these past few weeks to "fix things", all sorts of things - homeschool, household relations, eating habits, free time activities. All sorts of things.

When I say "fix", I don't mean that we are fixing it. I mean that WE have been trying to do it for far too long! We have left God out of entirely too many decisions & have just been drifting along seemingly without rhyme or reason. We have known this for some time but haven't really been ready to do anything about it.

BUT that has all changed this week!

Its amazing how quickly things get out of hand when God is not in charge. So we have finally allowed/begged God to lead our home again.

Along with this, Justin HAS to be the head of our house. He always has been, but we are respecting that even more now.

There needs to be a lot more Bible, praying, & kind words with a lot less TV, computer, & unthoughtful actions. There also needs to be a lot more laughter, tickling, & playing & a lot less fussing, bitterness, & complaining.

We are a family! Its time we started acting more like one.

Once we allow God to restore the proper order of things, our house will thrive. It will not always be easy but God will reward our obedience & encourage our efforts. The devil will be fighting all that much harder, but if the devil is fighting my family, it means he is trying to stop whatever progress we are making. It means that we are doing something right! With God's help, we will win this battle.

....And as an extra added encouragement, we watched Courageous last night. If you have not had the privilege to see this movie yet, I urge you to. It is fantastic!

"And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." Joshua 24:15
