Peace and Joy

Back in May of this year my husband and I felt God calling me to resign from my job and come home to homeschool our children.  It was a hard transition for me for several reasons.  I didn't want to let go of the job I was doing so I held on to a portion of it and continued to work on a part-time basis.  It was only 2-3 hours a week so I didn't think I was being disobedient.  This past month I realized that I was being disobedient.  God didn't tell me to come home but still do what I wanted to do.  God told me to come home!  I resigned from the part-time position about 2 weeks ago.

Since resigning and being FULLY obedient I have felt a peace and joy that I have never felt before.  I am embracing being home.   I have started caring for my husband, my children and my home in a more joyful manner.  I am enjoying my children.  I am embracing the Titus 2:3-5 scripture. 

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. 

I am busy at home.  I am busier than I have every been and I am loving it.  I have started a monthly meal plan.  I have researched new curriculum for my children.  I have been organizing our home.  I have bought material to make my girls modest outfits that little girls should be wearing.  I am excited!   I see God working in our family and it just brings me pure joy.  I can honestly say that our family is closer now than we have ever been and this is just the beginning.  This is just the beginning of the amazing journey God is going to take us on.  

All praise and all the glory goes to God.  Without Him I could not do what I do each day.  He gives me the strength.  He is my great encourager.  He directs me.  He teaches me His ways.

Thank you, Lord, for bringing me home to do Your work.  I pray that daily I remember that You are the reason for all that I do.
