Many years ago, I learned it’s best if our family doesn’t take long breaks from school.
So, when Jase finished his American History book last week, I knew.
Highschool level World History was next.
I’ll be honest.
My heart had concerns and I took them to the Lord.
I asked the Lord a long list of questions and He answered each one.
So we began on Monday.
Jase did catch that this was not only more difficult, it requires a lot more work.
I was impressed, though.
He didn’t complain.
Easy, it’s not.
Yet, he has jumped in and I’m so thankful.
Change doesn’t come easy for him.
The older I get the more I realize, it’s not easy for me either.
Yet, it’s a blessing.
To grow, stretch, learn, and surrender is so valuable.
Allowing Jesus lordship over every single bit of my life.
Which means I go where He guides.
I live as He directs.
I honor His changes in myself and my life with praise and thanksgiving.
His ways are best.
Including a new challenge.
Jase in highschool.
Yup, our youngest is entering the 9th grade.
When he finishes his science curriculum we are currently doing, he will begin Physical Science.
He’s working away on Prealgebra and of course will go into Algebra 1 when he’s finished.
It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.
Just like following Jesus.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for change. It’s not what I look forward to, but I know You use it for good in our lives. Lord, please continue to change my heart and mind to be more like Yours. Please continue to use outside circumstances to hone my character. Lord, I humbly request that You help me to be an encouragement and support to others around me who are also experiencing change. Please let me words, prayers, and attitudes be a blessing to those around me. Thank You for loving me enough to encourage me to grow. Thank You for change. Amen.
