Maintaining Your Salvation When Life Stresses You Out

Have you ever seen the Snickers commercials?  You know the ones from the “You’re Not You When You’re Hungry” campaign? Well, that’s exactly how I am when life gets stressful and I am feeling completely overwhelmed.

When things in my world get too chaotic, I’m no where near to being a sweetly saved, compassionate, and caring person.

Family, friends, co-workers, even strangers – they all get my I just want to be left alone, passive aggressive cold shoulder. 

That is until the Holy Spirit pulls me back from morphing into someone I am not proud of.

Prayers for My Child – Back to School Edition

Oh Lord…here we go!

Back to homework assignments.

Back to special projects.

Back to state exams. Packing lunch bags. Fussing over outfit choices, or why the uniform is “boring”. And my all time favorite, back to the daily dash to make it out the house on time.

Sweet Jesus, it’s back to school time!

Would you excuse me for a moment while I take a deep breath. Feel free to take one too. I  promise, I won’t judge!

20 Back to School Declarations for Your Child

It’s that time of the year a10 popular songs for yourgain: when sleeping in late and days spent relaxing by the pool turn into a mad dash for supplies and waiting in those car pool lanes.

Yup, it’s back to school time!

Whether your child is starting kindergarten or their first year of college, heading back to school can be nerve wrecking for a lot of parents.

Worry about what the year might bring can easily trickle into our thoughts and our conversations.

But as parents or village people, (because it still takes a village to raise a child), we can decide to speak life giving words over our children.

At times we allow our fears and our anxieties to speak louder than our faith.

But Proverbs 18:21 tells us “the tongue can bring death or life…”  That means, with our words, we can change the course of our children’s future.
