We sent our first-born to school very late. She was already four-and-a-half years old when she went to school for the very first time. At this time, we decided to go with a different language as well so not only did she have to get use to not being at home with mommy anymore, she also had to learn a new language.
This was probably one of the toughest decisions I ever had to make. I have my reasons for keeping her at home for so long, and I also have my reasons for changing her language at that stage. I believe I made the right choice and have no regrets in any of my decisions. But, that doesn’t mean that it has been easy, especially not for her.
Making Tough Decisions
All I’m saying is that sometimes we must make tough choices in life, especially when it comes to our kids. But the right answer isn’t always the easy path. The easy, obvious way isn’t always the right way. When it comes to big crossroads in our children’s lives we should really stop and be still. We should ask God to light up the right way to go, the right path, and then go for it, with a heart filled with confidence and not fear!
Not all, but some choices we make in our children’s lives will be critical for their future and some even for the rest of their lives. I always want to know and have peace that when I make big decisions and choices for them and their lives, I consult with God first before I made my final move.
God entrusted them to me, and with that I need to trust God. I trust Him to lead me to lead them. It is only with this trust that we can have peace with the decisions we are making for our children and their future.
Seeking God’s Face
As the kids grow up, things change. I’m sitting at yet another major crossroad, one that can have a huge impact on their lives. I feel really unsure about a lot of it, but I know if I sit at the feet of Jesus He will show me the way.
Sometimes our “worry” can clutter our own vision, we need to be still, slow down and seek the right answers from God. He will make a way where there seems to be no way.
