I am linking up with my friend, Mom's The Word to participate in her Monday meme, "Making Your Home Sing Monday." It's a day when we share what we are doing to bless our families in our home. If you would like to join in, click here.
How will I make my home sing this week?
I wake up way before my kids do, so I will have my own personal devotion time. However, when the kids wake up, I'm so busy trying to get them organized that I tend to overlook having devotions with them.
I need to start putting that as a priority above anything else. I need to be filled and refilled with the Holy Spirit daily, and so do they! I know when I haven't been in the Word, I'm more irritable, and I am just in my "flesh."
My two older kids are old enough to where they can have their own time with the Lord without me having to remind them. Nothing blesses me more than seeing my children in their rooms, soaking up Gods word!!
So, to keep us all accountable, and to stay motivated, my two older kids and I will read a chapter from the Old Testament and the New Testament every morning, and when we're all done, we will come together and share how the Lord spoke to us through His word.
I'm excited to do this with my children, and to see them really meditate on Gods word. It's part of training them up in the Lord, and for them to continue to grow spiritually!
