It's funny how that word is often used in a positive way, when in fact it's the complete opposite. Now, there is a difference in being proud about something (like someones achievements), but if you look up the definition in the dictionary, the word "pride" points to "self." There are verses in the bible that specifically talk about pride. For example, Proverbs 16:18 says, "Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty (arrogant) spirit before a fall."
To get to the point of this post, I realized it was indeed my pride not wanting to admit that I felt totally overwhelmed this year (regarding school). Actually, I started to feel overwhelmed last school year. I said in a previous post that I felt like I had to try different things to feel satisfied, but in reality I think I was just trying to take an easy way out from doing what I really needed to do. With all five of them officially in school now, I just knew I needed to get on top of my game. I know it's totally God that led us to where we are now. I have so much peace about this decision, I can barely contain myself from sharing it with my friends and family. If I wrote it all down here, it would be a mini-story. So, if you are interested in reading about the program we're going to be doing, click HERE. I feel like I'm getting the best of both worlds, really. Education that is priceless (I mean that literally too), and we are still a homeschooling family! God is good, and He once again showed me that He is faithful. If we truly seek His will for our lives, we will have peace with whatever the outcome is!!
