|Greetings Safe Haven Family!
How are you all doing? Are you feeling happy because the temperatures will be getting more reasonable soon, depending on where you live? Or are you looking forward to the changing colors of autumn? Or are you struggling with the idea of starting it all over again – the school year, the routine, the attempts to bring order to the chaos that sometimes result in anger and resentment in you and your kids?
Or is it a combination of emotions that you’re experiencing – some good, some bad, some ugly.
The economy is certainly causing fear and doubt in the minds of many. The culture war appears to be going poorly for those of us who believe in biblical values and morality.
But remember that as darkness gets darker, the light shines brighter. The drag shows for children are shining a light on the level of depravity that popular culture has sunk to and the truth that people can get used to anything and start to accept perversion as normal and tolerate destructive behaviors in the name of being virtuous.
Also remember that God is in control. And He has spoken good things over His people. He gives us a future and a hope. He is coming to our rescue.
In your homeschooling, in your family life, in your finances, in your relationships, God has solutions for every problem. He is aware of what is happening with you. He is concerned about what concerns you.
I pray that you will see God during this time and feel His arms surrounding you. I hope that you will spend time with Him in two-way journaling and listening prayer and hear His voice. He will speak to you in these quiet times and give you solutions, wisdom, direction, and peace that passes understanding. He may give you strategies and ideas and inventions that you never thought of before. Make time to be with Him to unburden your heart to Him and to listen to what He says back to you. Then write down what He says.
Teach your children to do this, too. My oldest son and his wife do two-way journaling every day. They are thriving spiritually and relationally because of it. I have seen a transformation in them since they started this practice.
I like to get out in nature to spend time with God. I feel more connected with Him as I admire His beautiful Creation. My kids are very observant of nature, too, and know a lot about different plants and animals. They see a new specimen of plant or animal or cloud or whatever and then go look it up. I think this is the best form of learning.
I try to make learning fun and meaningful. If they are interested in something, I encourage them to learn more about it. I provide books and classes and technology they need to research for themselves. I also make sure to point them toward the Creator of all of these fascinating things.
My kids have thrived with this kind of education. They are curious. They love to learn. They have become lifelong learners.
No matter what is happening in the world, God is still on the throne. None of this takes Him by surprise. We can take our burdens and cares to Him knowing that He hears us and will answer our prayers. He is the only one who can turn things around. And I see signs everywhere that He is using people all over the world to expose evil and mete out justice to the perpetrators.
The illegal raid on Mar-a-Lago is being exposed as a political hit by the FBI and the fake president, who claims he knew nothing about it. But the story behind the story is that this whole thing will come back to bite them. The American people are seeing how corrupt and dishonest Bidan is (misspelling on purpose). The FBI and the DOJ are being exposed. And legal precedent is being set that will allow the classified documents that other former presidents took with them to be seized and inspected. Just imagine what will come from that! HiIlary’s 33,000 emails, Uranium 1, the impeachment hoax, etc.
They didn’t mention finding anything about “nuclear secrets” that they feared he might have. It may have had something to do with the DOJ wanting information about Trump’s dismantling Obama’s Iran nuke deal. Paul Sperry says on Telegram: “Who would be most interested in securing that information? The architect of the Obama deal who’s now busy in the West Wing hammering out another sweetheart deal for Iran: Jake Sullivan. He is Bidan’s national security adviser. Who is Sullivan’s spouse? The counselor (top aide) to Attorney General Merrick Garland, who personally ordered the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate to allegedly find and seize “nuclear secrets.” His aide’s name is Maggie Goodlander. Coincidence? Don’t bet on it.”
The American people are awake now as are millions of people around the world. They are not letting the status quo continue in their governments. They are protesting and forbidding their leaders to keep stealing and laundering money and raising taxes over false narratives like climate change (or whatever they’re calling it this week). The globalist agenda is being called out for what it is, and the people of the world are uniting behind a different agenda. One called, “Get rid of the globalist elites”.
If you are looking for good sources of information (truth) for yourself and your kids, here are two sources that I highly recommend.
Theresa Griffith at Someone Believes in You.
There are lots of other good sources, but I’ll just give you those two for now.
If you want to know of some others, hit reply and I’ll send you some more of my favorite sources of true news.
And if you need prayer, hit reply and tell me how I can pray for you.
Which reminds me, I have a Facebook group called “How Can I Pray for You?” If you’re there on Facebook, please join us there. We would love to pray for you.
Lift up your heads for your redemption draweth nigh! Luke 21:28.
This is a good thing. It’s called REDEMPTION. So don’t fear. He is near.
Resting safely in His arms,
