Back to Homeschool BLOG HOP - Dear Homeschool Mom

How many times have you doubted your decision to homeschool – one, two, ten, more? Doubt may be a natural human response, but instead of looking at the waves of adversity, God asked me, “Will you walk by faith and trust in my leading?”
Meeting me in my limited faith, the Lord gently showed himself faithful as I sought his wisdom to homeschool each day. First, God encouraged me with the truth of Deuteronomy 6:6-9 “And these words which I command thee this day shall be in thine heart: and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and thou shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house and on thy gates.” Then, God provided constant encouragement through a dear friend who had homeschooled her children through college – I am so thankful for this friend and her words of wisdom.
If your doubts are outweighing your faith in homeschooling today, the Lord is waiting to show himself mighty to you. Simply cry out and he’ll show himself to be Lord of your homeschooling. “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed” (James 1:6).
God has a perfect plan for your homeschool - walk by faith and allow God to lead your homeschool.
