Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

A child should be shown from an early age about making a choice to obey his father and mother always. When a child chooses to disobey ~ there must be consequences set forth ~ so that the discipline brings them back to the path of choosing obedience first. To obey or not to obey? ~ this is the question of life – both for children and for us as adults in our walk with God.

Showing a pattern of
God's Love

Discipline for a child [and for us] is a necessity according to scriptures:

Proverbs 10:17
He who heeds discipline shows the way of life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray.

Disciplining a child
is an act of Godly love.
It must be done …
· in love
· with great patience
· under control
· with an intention to produce good fruit as a result.

A Daughter's Heart for God

My daughter, Rebekah, posted something on her blogsite this morning that I'd like to share. Many of you know that she and her husband, Rob and their three children, went to Haiti in April as full-time missionaries. This was planned by God from way before the earthquake. Today, Becky writes about the joys and difficulties she faces each day in a culture not her own. Her heart is spilled out ~ as her new life is poured out upon those in her community. Please take a moment to read what she wrote from her heart.

After all, like me, my daugther is the princess of The King! As for me.....There is no safer place for my daughter to be ~ than in the center of God's will!

Sowing and Reaping

Elizabeth George, who wrote A Woman After God's Own Heart, has long been one of my favorite authors concerning marriage, motherhood, and [for me] grandmotherhood. Her studies take us to a place which almost seems back in time, you know ~ the June Cleaver era...

Won't you join me today at Titus 2 In Action, sponsored by Sonya Thompson, for a closer look at Sowing and Reaping?
