What will define me?

I hope to instill this into my children’s lives “It’s not what I have been through in my life that defines who I am, it’s how I got through it that has made me the person that I am today”.

Choices ….it’s all about choices. What kind of choice will you make today. You have a blank page today and you will write your history. You can’t go back and erase what happened yesterday, but you can write something today that you won’t want to erase tomorrow.

I was having a conversation with our 9 year old and he was asking me questions about how we should act. He finally looked at me and said I am just a hippo. Of course he was trying to say he was a hypocrite. Lol He realized that he would act one way at church and act another way at home, but I am thankful that he does recognize the fact that his behavior is not the way it should be.

Our children or maybe even you have been through things that we may never even know but how are you going to make it through those things? How is your child going to make it through those things? I tell my older kids to get more of God in your life and these other things won’t have room to stay. It is a battle so what are you doing to equip yourself or your child to fight this battle.

I was going to make a list of things that we do but I would like to see if we can get more of you to post and write one thing that you do to prepare yourself or your child for battle.

One thing that we do is to apply the blood of Jesus over our kids from the top of their heads to the soles of their feet for protection.

Tag your it……..

  1. I love that– I’m a hippo!
    We put worship music on and let it play loud and clear in our home. This seeds the atmosphere of our home with the word and truth of God and makes us ready for battle!

    • Yes that about the hippo was funny…….we love to play worship music too or sing…..it sure helps to keep me calm……..and yes we have to stay ready for battle…….

  2. Glad I ‘stumbled’ upon your blog. We have a lot in common. We have adopted seven from the foster care system and love The Lord Jesus Christ with all our hearts.

    One of the greatest strategies I use is Scripture study, memorization and even familiarization. They need to be comfortable with their sword.
