Too Precious To Waste - #6773
A day is too precious to waste. It is only to be spent for the people and for the causes that are going to matter forever. Okay, you've got a day. Invest it!
Being Led By the Hand - #6746
Why don't you get you out of the way? Grow up to the point where you will let your Father feed you, let your Father carry you, let your Father lead you. You're never stronger than the moment you reach up a trembling, empty hand and say, "Father, lead me by the hand."
Parenting in Bite-Sized Chunks - #6716
We tend to be paralyzed by guilt over the past or anxiety over the future. Why not trust the Lord to cover both of those, and you have a good day today. That's how you build a better future.
First, Breathe It Yourself - #6659
The biggest single answer for your child's weakness is to let Christ transform that weakness in you. He has redeeming grace for your son, for your daughter. But first, breathe it yourself.
The Agenda That Really Matters - #6586
If God has trusted you with a young life - a child - make meaningful time with that child a non-negotiable of your schedule. I mean, even if you have to change jobs, if it takes that to be a father; to be a mother, that's eternity's priority.
The Most Special People On Earth - #6457
Children teach us something about openness, simplicity, humility, and faith. They help us unmask and they are soft cement that can still be written on. They're so important! They're a life to be shaped. Take stock of who gets your best attention and remember that Jesus thinks the children are some of the most special people on earth.
You Can't Run Fast Enough - #6344
When you're running from God, you are a destabilizing force on everything and everyone around you, and God is pursuing you even to this moment today. It's a good thing isn't it that parents always catch their children? Because if they didn't, eventually you know those kids would run into disaster or death. Well, God is catching you.
A Parent's Hardest Job - #6338
We're assigned to nudge our children slowly but surely toward the gate. The gate's called personal responsibility. And if we do it well, they'll one day rise up and call us blessed. We just don't dare need them too much for our own identity. See, we're supposed to be getting them ready to leave. And that's a parent's hardest responsibility, but it's also one of our most important jobs.
Turning Over Your Treasure - #6315
If you're a parent, could I encourage you to take a Hannah inventory today? Are you releasing your son or daughter for whatever? Whatever assignment your Lord has for him or her? Or do you have a plan for your child that you're trying to get God to sign off on. Don't stand in the way of God's best for that child of yours, and don't be seduced by the lies our world tells us about what's best for them.
