My Children

My children may not get the highest ACT scores, but they will be wise in the Lord. 



My children may not be the smartest or the most well-read, but they will have wisdom from the Lord to surpass and overcome worldly knowledge. 


My children may not have read 8,000 books by the time they graduate from high school, but they will have written many. 


My children may not reach every advanced level of math, but they will be able to speak and influence kingdoms and nations with God’s wisdom. 


My children may not be the most athletic, but they will have the endurance to run the race God has set before them. 


My children may not be the best in their class, but they will know and love God. 


My children may not finish all of their assignments, but I will choose to love them. My children could have someone screaming at them to get their work done, but instead they have arms to cuddle and comfort them.


My children may not earn the best grades, but they will have strong relationships with each other.


My children may not have friendships with the whole world, but they will have a few close, intimate companions.


My children will seek relationship over results. They will go deep with people when others go wide. 


My children will know how to schedule their day. They will know how to balance their time between work and relationships.


My children will remember to breathe. They will know how to take a break. 


My children will know how to take themselves less seriously sometimes. They will know how to laugh. They will know how to play. Yet they will still know how to work hard.


My children will start with the word of God. My children will end with the word of God. 


My children will know the Bible is their adoption manual. My children will know the one true God. 


My children will know that their God loves them. My children will know God is their source and their provider, the One who overcomes.


My children will do the challenging things. My children will work hard in service to the Lord. My children will serve God with their whole hearts. They will not serve men. 


My children will know the Lord and make Him known. They will be like Jeremiah, chosen before they were in their mother’s womb.


My God will provide for my children and prosper everything they touch.
