I remember last year, Danny had entered in something and he didn’t want to continue to do. He was genuinely worried and he fretted over it. I believed he should finish it because he had started it and isn’t that teaching our kids about being grown ups is all about? Isn’t that teaching them responsibility? I asked for counsel on this and was told for the first time in my life by someone, when I explained the situation and why I believe he needed to finish, that “I would tend to go the other way.” WHAT? That is like going against the grain to society and all the teachings out there in books, mom groups and never mind that, church groups. After a few weeks of thinking about it and praying about it, I did end up allowing him to quit and it was the best decision I ever made. I’m not saying that this is always the way to go. I think every situation is different.
We need to look outside what we have been taught by humans and rather look inside ourselves and seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit and look into what we are being taught from the Bible to do ( yes, that means read your Bible. It always come down to that anyway ☺ ). It’s also helpful to have good and wise counsel and for me, having counsel of someone who “goes against the grain “so to speak, has been beneficial. I have this way about me that things have to go a certain way because they are supposed to. That is the RULE! Well, life hasn’t been working for me like that for a very long time ( well, maybe not ever ). So maybe it’s time to change.
Like the questions goes,
