Gettin' a Glimpse That God's at Work In My Children: Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday and I'm not sure where that week went!  Whoever said that life would slow down when the kids grew up didn't have any grown and living at home!  But, I digress.  It's Thankful Thursday, please visit Iris at Grace Alone, to participate and read other thankful hearts.

I'm thanking the Lord today for my children who love the Lord, and are walking with Him.  On Sunday, my son gave a testimony in church.  Our church is studying through the book of Exodus.  In his testimony, my son noted that in Exodus 16:10 the Israelites turned and looked to the Lord in the cloud.  He said that God had been there all the time, in the presence of the cloud and pillar of fire. But they hadn't looked to Him.  My son challenged us to trust that God is there all the time, that He's acting--He's at work--in the concerns of our lives (in his case, regarding work and a future wife and family).  And he asked, "Who are you looking to?"

My daughter challenges me in my walk with the Lord regularly, by her actions:  reading and studying the Word every morning and night, and handing out tracts everywhere she goes.  And, by her words, when my walk and my talk don't match up, or when I'm tempted to take the easy path, or when I need encouragement to keep on keepin' on.

My kids make me proud.  They honor us as parents, know what is appropriate behavior and manners, they dress modestly and nice, they are diligent workers, they're kind, they're trustworthy and they're listening to the Holy Spirit.  I've been praying that each one of us would be more passionate about our Lord Jesus Christ and our Christianity, to remember and return to our first love.  We're growing, maturing, and we sin, and we have to ask forgiveness:  a cycle that will go on until we die.  But, oh my, it does make my heart rejoice when the Lord gives me a glimpse, as He did on Sunday, that He's answering my prayers and He's at work in their lives.  So thankful.
