He Knows You
We have two young adult sons. They are as different as black and white.
One is all redneck
One is hipster
One is blonde
One is brunette
One is a preacher
One is a wild land fire fighter
One has walked away from God many times.
One had a drug problem. Being drug to church all the time.
Our oldest went to Job Corp at 16, so until then, he had a ‘drug’ problem as well.
I am proud of them both.
For different reasons. In different ways
I have bigger expectations for one. Maybe different. Not bigger.
I got to hear our 2nd son, The Preacher, do his thing Wednesday night at his youth group.
I had many emotions going on.
Thank you God for letting me be his mama.
Proud of him for using his gift of talking in front of people. He could be using his gift to sell ice cubes to Eskimos. Instead he CHOOSES to share God’s word.
Thank you God for bringing us to this!
From a single mama with two little boys to this.
God knew ALL ALONG this is where we would be. He wasn’t worried. He knew.
He knew that our oldest was going to keep us in our knees.
He knew that our second was going to us his gift for His Glory.
Does this mean that they will continue on the paths they are on?
But He knows.
I trust Him, with every fiber of my being, when it comes to my children’s lives.
He knows much better than I when it comes to parenting.
These thoughts came about after feeling so proud of Boy Child 2 for doing God’s work.
Have I told Boy Child 1 I’m proud of him, even when he isn’t walking in the Lord’s will right now?
Whose standards does he have to live up to?
The worlds? Mine? God’s?
God’s are the only ones that matter.
Who am I to judge if Boy Child One is CHOOSING to live to his own.
That is between him and God.
Do you struggle with telling your kids you are proud of them? Do you feel you have to treat them equally?https://mamakautz.com/he-knows-you/He Knows Youblogging for 1,Christian Living,One Word 2013,parentingWe have two young adult sons.
