Homeschooling is a path God chose for my family. A path we have walked for many years now (so many that I think I have truly lost count). One that still requires me to fall before Him, asking for help. I find great need to seek Him, asking for help, so that I may direct the steps of my children.
How often I have felt that I am not qualified to take on the job of teaching my children. How often have I wrestled with feelings of inadequacy in how to teach 8 children. Honestly, some days I just wonder if I can even master success with one. Questioning if I have bought the right materials, if the curriculum is the right fit, if I am following the books correctly. Wondering if I am giving them enough, challenging them enough, preparing them so that God can use them as He desires.
This morning I was up prior to the sun, I found this verse. As I read it, I saw that it is so true, I need God to help me empty me, so that He can fill me with what He desires. He can form me and shape me, so that I in turn can form and shape the ones He has graciously entrusted to me.
It's not about me and how much I know,
but how much He wants me to empty myself,
so He can fill me with His ways and His wisdom to pour out upon my children!
