Hard, but Better with Wisdom Wednesday Link Up

My boo turned 10 just about a month ago, and he is growing up so fast.

From cheek only kisses, to no holding hands in public, and the grown up conversations are popping up too.

I had the wonderful opportunity to discuss God directing you to move, when it’s really hard and you don’t want to deal with change.

I was able to talk about how God always wants the best for us, and if He’s directing you to move then that move would bring about something better than you have now.

This wasn’t an easy conversation, but it was our first important grown up one.

Looking back I know I didn’t come up with the right words throughout that conversation. I know God was giving me the words to speak to his tender heart.

Now I must strive to remember that moving with God’s direction always means He has something better for us.

It’s always interesting when you have to practice what you’re teaching your children.

I’m so thankful for the opportunity to raise my children knowing and loving the Lord, ensuring they know He always wants the best for us, even when we don’t understand the circumstances.

    It is a wonderful place to be when you are able to rest in Him and know that with each unexpected turn is His plan for something better for us. May your “God” conversations with your son give him a Christ-centeredness. God bless, Maria at Delight Directed Living

    Yes, and sometimes what is best is what is hard.
    So good to know the hard stuff too is for our good.

    Blessings on you as you share this time with your son! My oldest is 10 too and I’m loving the ‘adult’ conversations (though I feel so unwise most of the time!)
