Child Training...

So originally I wanted to share a cute cute video of Darby singing but I have to figure out how to make it shorter so blogger can upload it!  dern...but hopefully soon!  Its been a couple of days!  I have been a bad blogger!  I have caught a few of yalls post here and there but I need to catch up in a major way!  Well I can't get the video to work but I thought I could share two of my favorite child training tools so far.

The first is the Jesus Storybook Bible...Every Story Whispers His (Jesus') Name. Every story points to the promise and the coming of the Savior and Rescuer for all sinners!

The other thing I love is the Hide Em' in Your Heart...Bible verse memory tunes! They are cute and Darby has been known to shout scripture at the top of her lungs to these tunes!

Of course I don't do these things so that she will be saved or be good. I'm just trying to be a good steward of these precious gifts that God has given me. I will leave the saving up to Him and will and do pray earnestly for their hearts and lives and future! I will never share a "gospel" of being good with my kids. I will never teach them that reading your bible or memorizing scripture is what you have to do to go to heaven! A pox (as my pastor would say) on that "gospel". I can only PRAY and guide and lead them to the real gospel that it is NOT by works but by Grace. A free gift that we don't deserve. I pray that they would fear, not fear like he will do something good or bad to them, but reverent fear the Lord. F-flee from sin; E-edyify others; A-adore and worship God; R-run to the cross (an acrostic from my pastor's sermon Sunday). This takes faith and a handing over of your life to Jesus at one point but then everyday thereafter to say Lord here is my what you will and I will seek to honor you! Oh I pray for my babes to hear Jesus when He says.... "Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and you will find rest for your soul"! I know from personal experience before and even after I became a christian that Jesus is the ONLY place that I can trully experience rest and comfort in the chaos of a broken world.  He is SO GOOD wheter times are good or bad that remains true!
