Stay Abased

Sympathy & Empathy re-post

This stuff is important because when we are going through hard times...we want sympathy.  We want it desperately.

Decreasing into His Purpose

I was recently in the company of a gentleman who's parting words to those he met were..."stay abased."  

When we decrease and the Lord increases.  The goal.

Attention: Husbands

This devotional

I am reminded today that NOTHING can forfeit a child's right to a father's protection.

Hear!  Hear! are to protect your children...even if you should meet with resistance from those in your own household.  

This is essential to our theology.

*  Note

Resistance will most likely come from your wives.   I know.  I am one.

We will be tempted to think unBiblical thoughts.  To implement unBiblical "remedies."

We (us wives)  will be tempted to place blame.  To finger point.  To live in fear.  To act in fear.  To harden our hearts.  To justify the bitterness in our hearts.  To give up.

Dear Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,

I sure hope you are reading this.  I highly recommend you read Parenting The Difficult Child

You will find excerpts from the book in this Blog post . 

Your authenticity and transparency is beautiful to behold.  The Lord loves you.   

You are loved. 

If you are convicted of sin...repent.  First to Him, then to those whom you have sinned against.

Turn to Him.  Allow Him to lead you on this journey to attachment.

This was a GIANT first step.

Next...tell someone you trust.  Maybe a pastor at your church? 

Listen, the Lord does not tarry.  His timing is perfect.  If He is revealing something to you now...accept what He is showing you now.     

Joel 24-26

*SIDE NOTE:  Absolutely not a coincidence that a few minutes after I posted  a warning against the generational curse/sin teachings....I find this message waiting.  

Russell Moore Article

This article.  

The article reminded me of ...

...this post.

And this one.  

"And ensuring that we have not just one family involved in an adoption, but a network of “extended relatives” willing to help shoulder the responsibility, can bolster the family’s adoption."

*Note:  un-Biblical Generational curse/sin teachings run rampant in the adoption world.

From Dark Places Isaiah 42:16

This article.

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.  

Isaiah 42:16
Isaiah 9:2 The people who walk in darkness Will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them.

If you are a parent who has failed as a nurturer.  Repent.

The Lord knows all about it already.  Our kids know all about it.


If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.   1 John 1:9
