For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

ABC of Homeschooling - G is for ...

ABCs of Homeschooling

I love homeschooling, I really do. I love that I can teach each of my boys according to their levels of maturity, their learning style and that i can be with them all day long and answer all these  questions  and challenges they face day after day. I love that I can point them to Christ at every opportunities that arises.

Yes there is a however coming . . .

However, all of this is really hard, well worth work, but hard work nonetheless. How am I to accomplish all of this faithfully? I previously use the word disciple as a word for the letter D. How am I going to be a good influencing example to my boys, when I myself need so much improvement?

That is where the word for this week comes in:  I need GRACE and God promised to give us GRACE for every moments of every day.

I need grace to trust God to help me with every challenges that arise.

I need grace to keep a meek and gentle spirit when they disobey, or misbehave, or spill something, or do not get a concept that I thought was mastered.

I need grace to keep the vision ever in front of me.

I need grace to believe that God has my boys in his hands and is guiding them where he intends for them to be.

I need grace to not seek to homeschool my kids my way but God's way.

I need grace to be a loving mother that loves her children unconditionally.

I need grace to get up when I should in the morning and be ready to do my job as a mom and teacher with a joyful and hopeful attitude.

I need grace to learn to rely upon my God for every day's need.

Homeschooling is a journey of faith just like every thing else in our christian life and we need grace to live it in a way that is honoring and glorifying to God. God's grace is always sufficient.

AMEN!!! *looking for the offering plate*

It has taken me several years to realize that my goals and my path was not His! His grace has to carry us through and show us which way to go.
