Why is it when our young children come to us with life ambitions that we encourage them by telling them they can be anything they want but then as they mature we tend to stop encouraging them which causes weak self esteem within themselves?
Think about it! As you have matured in life how many people have ever discouraged you by looking at what you wear, maybe for what you look like, your background, your age or simply by just telling you this can not be done? Is this not complete opposite of what we teach our children when our daughter comes to us wanting to be that princess or when our son comes to us wanting to be that astronaut?
It is vital to recall that every child is a child of God and we never know the age of that lost soul when their eyes may be opened to the Truth in salvation. It is our position to seek Him daily while encouraging each other no matter the age in the glory of God through Jesus Christ!
Do you recall the lesson of Abraham & Sara in the birth of their son Isaac? The lesson was that our heartfelt dreams can be fulfilled at any age of our life if our faith is right by God and we are working within His will!
It is pathetic how how our society by majority has lost their sight in encouraging and helping one another reach their goals in life! Instead we sit around looking and dissecting the task while discouraging someone who can make a difference because we can’t see how God is working in their life. GOD HELP US For How Blind We Are!!!
Our society and even many of our churches are holding our children back because we have lost sight of how to grow in the Spirit of God! We are to help those below us and encourage them to travel further than ourselves while never forgetting the roots of our foundation in the Word of God through the love of Jesus Christ. It is also our position to respect and uplift those above us in order for them to maintain their position until the next one comes along and many have lost sight of this principle in life.
What do you think Martin Luther King would say right now to those who told him to keep his mouth shut and that he would never make a difference? Looks like his heartfelt dreams have now been fulfilled because of the belief in the dreams that he once carried and passed on. Do not ever lose sight of how God can work in our life when we learn to follow Him in true faith and seek His direction in the talents that He has given to each of us to make a difference in our children’s future. Not all things happen in our timing but when we plant the right seeds in fertile soil you never know when the tree may sprout. Every generation is to help nurture and fertilize our children of tomorrow!
I challenge you today and every other day to encourage someone and help them in life by learning to work together and not apart! Don’t disrespect God as Sara and laugh at things that you may think are not possible. Because ALL things are possible with God and greater is He that is within us than he that is in this world!!! Amen
