LIVE LIKE THAT BY SIDEWALK PROPHETS
Believe it or not, out of the first 18 years of our child’s life, almost 6 and a half years of that time will be spend in school! That’s over 1/3 of their journey will be outside of our personal care!
That challenges me as a parent to brainstorm new ways to supplement my child’s education and do a better job living out my values. Like Proverbs says, "If we train up a child in the way he should go, when he’s old he won’t depart from it."
We might not have specific control over our kid’s education, but we do have influence & power when we pray for them each day! Carve out the time!
I was listening to the latest song from Sidewalk Prophets: Help Me Find It. These words are so powerful about God's will for our life!
I feel SO out of style when I see all the clothes at the mall. I'm still in skinny jeans denial! Back to school shopping always does this to me. It's like 5 stages of grief!
1. Denial – The clothing stores are just selling ugly stuff this year. They are out of touch!
2. Anger – I am NOT paying $65 for a ratty t shirt with some designer logo on it. These girl shirts just keep getting tighter and tighter and shorter & shorter…. no one can fit into this!
3. Bargaining – OK.... I've been to 27 stores.....MAYBE I'll let my kid wear that outfit IF I can change it up a little bit and make it a little more modest….
Shakespeare said, “"How far that little candle throws his beams. So shines a good deed in a weary world."
When we shine God’s light at work today, we can share a little hope with our co workers and help brighten our company culture!
A tiny candle can break up the eclipsing darkness. A city on a hill can be seen from miles away. A simple light bulb can illuminate an entire room. If you feel like your work setting is a dark place, be a simple light. Be a simple influence. Showcase God's love by the way you live. If you don't have enought light yourself, reflect God's light.
