Today I am answering the Question of the Day over at Christian Homeschoolers Taking a Stand, where I also contribute.
“How do you as the mom and teacher keep your sanity on the really hard days?”
Ahh, the never ending question amongst homeschoolers. Well, I would say like anything else, whether you are a homeschooler or not, we need to turn to the Lord on our hard days.
He is waiting for us to reach out to Him instead of trying to do everything on our own. He wants to be THE center of our day, so when we take our eyes off of Him, our day can quickly spin out of control.
When we take our eyes off of Him, we sink:
And I prayed.
Our math lesson went more smoothly than any other day this week. She was focused and it took the focus off herself, and on giving her burdens to Him.
Just playing worship and praise songs in the background helps keep me focused on Him during my day. It’s really hard to yell or pout when “How Great is Our God” is calling me to sing praises!
I think no matter what we do, homeschool moms or not, we as Christians remember to do everything wholeheartedly working for the Lord and not men.
We are not called to be comfortable everyday, but live our lives as a sacrifice for HIM.
To Simply Live…For Him!
