The past few days I have been on edge. I knew the day was getting closer for summer break to end. I’ve been thinking “they’re growing up too fast”. This morning we sent our girlies off to school. Still the same thought flooded my mind “they’re growing up and there is nothing I can do about it.”
I asked the Lord to comfort me through his word. I opened my bible and the very first thing I read was “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”
Because my girls are growing in age they are going to be given more opportunities to grow in grace and to draw closer to Jesus by growing in his knowledge. And this is what they were born for. This is why we all are here.
There is peace in the presence of our Savior. He knew what had been racing through my mind. He knew what would speak peace to my soul. I praise him for that.
