This year I felt like putting my son back in public school because homeschool has always seemed so hard for me. I let him go to a public school to tour it and see what it would be like. He got all excited and wanted to go, but I didn't have peace about it in my heart. But at the same time, I didn't have complete peace in my heart about homeschool. One night, I got alone with God and asked Him what His will was. I should have done that before I took my son on a tour of the school.
This is what the Lord spoke to me. "God did not give me the ability to homeschool to be stressed out all the time. He gave me this opportunity to spend quality time with my children while they are young, to lead them down a path of righteousness. He has provided everything needed to homeschool and part of the reason we are broken right now with our finances is because it is not God's desire for G.Q. to go to public school. He has already provided for homeschool needs and next years needs will be met as well, with abundance. By then we will all realize that it is God's desire for both children to be schooled at home."
Now there is COMPLETE peace in my heart about our decision. I thank God for such a timely message and I greet homeschool with open arms, trusting Him to help me be the mother and teacher that He has called me to be. He doesn't lead you anywhere in life without equipping you with everything you need!
