What Will Be Seen?

“…the child’s most fixed and dominant habits are those which the mother takes no pains about, but which the child picks up for himself through his close observation of all that is said and done, felt and thought, in his home.” ~Charlotte Mason

These treasures are going to take my heart, my example, out into the world. 

What will that look like? 

When people look at these kids, will they see You? 

Will they see courage and humility? 

Will they see joyful servants, men and women who are willing to lay it all down for the sake of the Gospel? 

Will they see kindness and patience, gratitude and a gentle spirit? 

Will they see warriors willing to stand, fearless.

"I eagerly expect and hope, that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage, so that now as always, Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life, or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Philippians 1

Take my life Lord, start with me. 
Refine me. 
I surrender all. 
I trust you with every piece of my life. 
Whatever it takes that we would know and love Your name more than anything on this earth.

"Whom have I in heaven but you? 
And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. 
My flesh and my heart may fail, 
but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Psalm 73

Take my life and use it to make YOUR NAME GREAT!
