About Me

My name is Meredith, and I am the mother of two awesome boys; the wife of a fantastic husband; the band director for 100 students in grades 5 - 12 in a small community in Maine; and a follower of Christ. This blog is a place for me to reflect on what the Lord is teaching me.

Praying for my sons, Day 2

Submission to Authority

Hebrews 13:17 -  May Soccer Boy and Cuddle Bug obey their leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over their souls, as those who will have to give an account.  Let them do this with joy and not with groaning.

For my Soccer Boy... my little man who is always testing the boundaries, to see what is acceptable, and what is not, I pray that he would respect the authority, rules and leading of those that are in charge of him at the time.  He is constantly testing to see if what works at daycare will work at home-- if what his friends say at daycare will be okay to say at home.  The answer is usually no.  The fight is constant, but it is so worth it.  We are training him up to be a follower of CHRIST.  Lord, help us to not lose heart, not to lose patience, and forever to not lose sight that this IS a battle.  Give us the strength to love above all else, especially during the correction. The issue is not about the obedience, or the submission. The issue is always the heart.  Thank you Lord... that we can rely on you.  Help me to ACTUALLY RELY on you in the middle of the difficult moments.  amen.

This is the ONE verse from last week that has resonated in my heart. There is one in my boy tribe that is really struggling with obedience. Woo wee I have prayed this prayer many times this week!
