Ladies (and any gentlemen) … I am going to wash the dishes – after I post this. Today, I have had some thoughts and done a little research and I would like to share. In regard to options…in many situations there appear to be endless options and the fear of making the wrong choice(s) often propels me to paralysis faster than I can blink. For example – Homeschooling…planners, books, schedules, ways to teach, curriculum, etc. Who can possibly choose? Who can go to a curriculum fair, look over a curriculum website or catalog, read the various emails that come through – without freaking out because I might not have the right stuff to teach my child(ren)? So, I just want to say this…trust God. Ask Him daily what you should do, wait on Him to answer and guide you. Be in His Word daily. Then You will do what He instructs you to, buy what He instructs you to with what He provides to buy it with or He will just drop it into your lap in His timing and it will be amazing! Sure, research is important, I’m not suggesting we don’t research…but when you feel overwhelmed, fearful and anxious about not doing the right thing…just pray, take a step back, a day or two off and breathe. What you do by example, your child(ren) will learn from and this part of the process of life and learning will speak volumes to your child(ren) about how to trust God with every part of life and how to handle decision making. God will show you what to teach your children, how to teach them, when to teach and He will provide all you need, every step of the way.
James 1:5-6 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, Who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
