Thoughts, Quotes and Scripture Songs

... that I am contemplating this morning,
preparing for the next round of spiritual battle  for the saving of souls -
that of my children

and mine.

We know this whole experience is not for the children's benefit only. 
The Lord has chosen this path for the refining of the characters of the rest of us, also.
May we all strive to be obedient 
so that we may be worthy of working side by side with God. 

For we are laborers together with God.
1 Corinthians 3:9


"'We are laborers together with God', 
He provides us with all the facilities, 
all the spiritual weapons necessary for the pulling down of Satan's strongholds. 
Present the truth as it is in Jesus. 
Let the tones of your voice express the love of God. 
Lead, but never drive. 
Approach the most obstinate in a spirit of kindness and affection. 
Dip 
your 
words 
into the oil of Grace, 
and let them flow from your lips in 
love."
{Letter 105, 1893}

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, 
but mighty through God 
to the pulling down of strongholds; 
Casting down imaginations, 
and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, 
and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:4 & 5

Let your speech be always with 
grace
seasoned with a little bit of salt
that you may know how you ought to answer every one.
Colossians 4:6

Being confident of this very thing,
that He which has begun a good work in you
will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
Being confident!!
Confident
of this very thing.
Philipians 1:6

Great scriptures that go to the heart of what we are being asked to do as parents of special kids. So hard not to lose perspective when we are fighting spiritual battles against our own children, knowing their healing has to come from God. God bless you on your journey and I look forward to getting to know you through your blog.
