Has He Proven It to You?

God makes us a spectacular promise when He says that all His promises prove true (see Psalm 18:30, Romans 3:4, and 2 Samuel 22:31). This isn't a promise made only to the Israelites, or one that is found only in the Old Testament. It is a promise that encompasses all of the Bible and all believers, and as such it is one we can take the spiritual bank to cash with full expectation that it will "clear"!

Yes, I realize that in essence I'm claiming that God promises that His promises will prove true. And I get that you may think that's an odd concept, or maybe that I'm talking in circles or have put my thought processes in a blender and what came out what this blog post. But I really do believe that God's amazing promise to us that each and every one of His promises is true and can be counted on is one of the most important spiritual truths we can grasp.

Think of a verse you consider dear to your heart ~ maybe you have prayed it over your children daily, or perhaps you have laid claim to a specific portion of God's Word in regard to your marriage. How have you seen God answer those prayers? How has He acted on your behalf in response to the promises you believed from His Word?

Are there other promises in the Bible that you avoid because you're afraid they might not apply to you? Or because they seem too big to believe in light of present circumstances? You don't see any light at the end of the tunnel (maybe you feel trapped in that tunnel!) and there doesn't seem to be any point in pestering the God of the universe about your troubles.

I'll say it again because it's worth repeating: ALL God's promises prove true, and His answer is Yes and Amen through Christ Jesus our Lord! How would your daily life change if you really believed that, with every fiber of your being?

When the road gets rocky, why not try out some of His promises rather than worry and fret (and remember, the Bible says not to fret as it only leads to evil in Psalm 37:8) and see what happens? I am certain you'll be pleasantly surprised by the wonderful result that comes from trusting that all God's promises to you will prove absolutely true.

And if you have trusted Him and seen that He is faithful to His Word and always acts in loving kindness toward His children, leave a comment and share what great things He has done for you! I'd love to hear about His good will toward you and His care over your concerns, and it is always wonderful to recount the great things He has done for us.

Be encouraged today as you choose to take God at His Word and believe in faith that He has good plans for you and your family!

Day 123 done :)

  1. Wow -- thanks for taking the time to write this. You could have written this on my FB wall or emailed it to me...I feel like it was written just for ME today!! I know it will bless others too, though (I hope anyway!!)!! Today has not been that great of a day with my health stuff, but between this post and a verse that our dear friend, Miriam, emailed to me this morning -- it has been sooo much better than my body had planned for me!! :)

    As for something good that God has done -- I'm not sure I could type that long, but the one HUGE one that comes to mind is all of the many prayers that were answered and the doors that were opened for Logan and his school year this year! It has been so AMAZING to watch him really grow and be more comfortable with who he is! It's also been neat to watch him as he has learned how to deal with and conquer his Selective Mutism on his own this year -- without mom in the school building to "save" him! It has helped me to "let go" more and more as well as I watch how well he is doing...but that's a whole 'nother story lol! :))

    THANKS for all you and Tony have done not only for Logan, but also for our entire family. God is also more than GOOD when He allows the Burt's to be apart of your family!! :)

A Homeschool Mom's Devotional (# 1)

Colossians 4:17 tells the reader to "be sure to carry out the work the Lord gave you".

How can this be applied to the enormously busy lifestyle of a homeschool mom?

First of all, we must always remember that the Word of God has the answer for our every need and we can trust fully in God to use His Word to lead us, guide us, correct us, and bless us.

Keeping that in mind, let's consider what this verse is saying. We are told to carry out, or complete, the work the Lord has given us. We are wives, mothers, homeschoolers. Those three BIG job descriptions come immediately to mind when I think of homeschooling mothers. Applying God's Word to our life means carrying out our work as wives, as mothers, and as homeschoolers.

When I am exhausted from another long day (or long week, long month, long year, etc.) I still must honor the Lord by blessing my husband. Maybe that means having a hot meal on the table when he arrives home from work. Perhaps your husband would prefer a…

My Preferred Bible Reading Plan

We all know that reading our Bibles is a key part of living a healthy life as a follower of Jesus. But busy homeschool moms may, at times, struggle to know what part of the Bible to read on any given day.

Some people read the Bible through, Genesis to Revelation, and when they finish simply start over. Others have reading plans that follow along with the sermons their pastor is currently preaching. And yet others find themselves "stuck in the Psalms", since they're not quite sure what to read.

I'm not going to tell you how many chapters a day you should read, or that you need to do exactly what I do. I'm just going to share what has worked for me, and hopefully encourage you to get into the Word using some type of plan ~ because every homeschool mom knows what happens to our plans when we fail to create a plan, right?!

I use a prayer and Bible reading guide called "Prayer Point", published by Samaritan's Purse. About every 8 weeks, I receive a new i…

Do You Homeschool? Then You Need to Read This Article!

Whether you have been homeschooling for a month, a year, or a decade, you've inevitably faced the "questions". Questions about socialization, college, athletics, driver's ed, high-school biology, etc. etc. etc. and so on.....

It seems as if homeschoolers are ripe for questions from day one; but the flip side seems to be that there really is no flip side. We are expected to patiently answer any and all questions, smiling politely and pretending we've never heard this line of questioning before. But when we try to ask a few questions about, say, public schools as a whole or the issue of private schools being used as a last-ditch landing spot for students expelled from public school, well...ahem...we're pretty much told to keep quiet. No one wants to hear our questions, and often times no one really wants to hear our answers to their questions. They just kind of want us to....go....away.

I'm not planning on going away any time soon. And neither are my five …

Everything by Mary DeMuth

The book Everything by Mary DeMuth became a "keeper" for me almost as soon as I began reading. Mary sugarcoats nothing in her attempt to make Jesus' gospel what it rightly is ~ and as you probably guessed from the title of her book, it rightly is about everything.

Eighteen chapters, three sections, one-hundred and ninety-eight pages...if you take the time to delve into them you will grow exponentially in your walk with the Lord. In Everything Mary calls us out, calls us higher, and admonishes us with honesty and openness. Sharing from her heart and relying heavily on the truth that is God's Word, she sets things straight. There aren't just one or two things about this book that I have taken to heart; and there aren't just a couple of quotes I could share here. The book in it's entirety is a game-changer!

Please buy this book, read this book, apply the truths in this book to your life, and let the Lord become your everything!

TOS Crew Product Review ~ Reading Eggs

Reading Eggs is an online learning program for pre, early and emergent readers (ages 3 to 7 primarily, with a unique online area for readers ages 7 to 12).

As my children are all older, this is primarily an informational review, kind of like "looking back" to consider how this program might have worked for our family several years ago. However, we did spend quite a bit of time using the online are for older readers, called "Reading Eggspress" - I will mention both throughout the review.

The Reading Eggs website is divided into three categories: First Steps for 3-4 years; Ready for School for 5-year-olds; Fun Practice Makes Perfect for 6-7 years. The ages are really more like guidelines, so your child could easily move through all the levels at their own pace. And when ready, they could move on to the lessons available at Reading Eggspress.

I feel this would have been a fun, easy to use resource for my children in their early years as readers. There are loads of option…
