I've been sporadically doing a blog to be an encouragement to homeschoolers (although it could be for anyone, really). Here's my latest blog:
It is of the Lordís mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
Itís that time of the year again. You know, that time when discouragement in homeschooling sets in. Historically, for me, it has always been this time of year when I lose my steam. Usually, thereís something else going on that heaps on top of my tiredness, something in my personal life that just pulls my attention away from that prize and makes me tense and unfocused. I think that satan knows that this is the time when I lose steam and he tempts me to take my focus off of God and think about my own problems. I know I canít be the only one that goes through this. To top off all of this discouragement, I usually go through this self-doubt and wonder if Iím doing the wrong thing and am I ruining my childrenís future. Itís usually the time that I take my eyes off of Godís will and look at my life through the eyes of the world.
Discouragement is a slippery slide...
