We named our third daughter an unusual name, much beloved from a family friend. That sweet friend recently sent me a book that has been wonderful food for thought. The book is Praying the Scriptures for Your Children, and was written by Jodie Berndt.Read More
I have been contemplating regeneration lately. You know, it isn't our work, it's squarely Christ's. We were dead in our trespasses (Ephesians 2) but He breathed life into our lifelessness and He will do the same for our children if they are His. Jodie writes: "The sooner we realize that it is not about what we do but about what God does, the sooner we will stop focusing on ourselves and our shortcomings, and begin focusing on God and His power. Likewise, the sooner we quit worrying about doing our part, the sooner we can start rejoicing in the fact that God is doing His part. And the sooner we can recognize that God is at work, the sooner we can jump in and join Him."
