This past school year was full of difficult decisions and uncertainties for many parents. The decision to send our children to school at all was the first real one we all faced. We prayed about it, but in reality, we really didn’t have a choice. We have 5 children currently in school and no way to have internet installed at our home. We also considered all that our children would have to give up if we managed to keep them home. I questioned that decision often, and even wondered at times if I was being a careless mother; it seemed that so many were keeping their children out of school. In the end, we knew all we could do was send our babies to school while keeping them covered in prayer and the blood of Yeshua.
I am so thankful for the peace and boldness our Father gave us in order to send them. As always, our Father proved Himself so faithful in everything. Our children have had one of, if not the best, school year that they have ever had. I could write an additional page about the many wonderful teachers they’ve had, friends they have made, and things they have been allowed to accomplish this year. We now have no regrets for sending them. It has not been easy for me, by no means, especially since I was not able to be there with them this year. Having said that, I can truly say our Father has been there with them the whole time. He has kept them, protected them, and caused them to flourish. In the beginning, we received phone calls reporting that someone in the school had covid, coupled with my children being exposed to it through my daughter’s best friend. I remember telling her mom that I chose to trust God to protect both their family and ours. Thankfully through everything, to our knowledge, none of us have contracted covid, and we truly give all glory to Elohim for that.
Why did I write all of this? I have just been over whelmed with how good our Father truly is. I was once again reminded of His amazing faithfulness to us and how much He truly cares about every part of our lives. My heart was breaking not being able to be there with them, but I was so blessed to watch our Father be there and guide them through this year. We don’t always understand why things are allowed to come our way, but we have to trust that our Father truly does work all things for our good. He is always moving in our lives even when we don’t know it or can’t see it at the moment. We truly have a good, good Father.
Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
