“Now it came about when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God did not lead them by the way of the land of the Philistines, even though it was near; for God said, ‘Lest the people change their minds when they see war, and they return to Egypt.” (Exodus 13:17).
       I want to keep on building my faith in God, and my son’s faith in his Lord, so that when we are called to battle, we both will be able to defend ourselves and our beliefs.  Let us all keep our eyes on God, and skip those short cuts.  Faster isn’t necessarily better, though the world will tell you differently.
Prayer for Today:
“Oh My God, Help me to look to You for direction
as I parent this action-packed tornado of a boy.
 I want to take the paths that You have mapped out for me.
 Help me not to be tempted by the short-cuts of the world
.  In Jesus Name, Amen.
