Today we started back to homeschool following our family's Christmas break. If you had asked me yesterday if I was ready to get back to work, I would have said, "Nope!" And yet this morning as I read my Bible and spent time in prayer, I realized that I was more than ready. What changed? Nothing and everything.
I was certainly not ready, able, prepared, or equipped in my own strength to home educate my children today. Or any other day. But after spending time focusing on Jesus, His will for my day, His educational plans for my children, His desires for our family, I was more than ready to get going on the day's work. My everything accomplishes nothing - the One Who is Everything is able to make anything from nothing. Very cool to think about.
Now, if I can keep this same attitude of total dependance on Jesus as I homeschool tomorrow, and the next day, and so on...that would be fantastic!
Day 6 done :)
