God's Divine Purpose!!!

(Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV)
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

I am so thankful to God for this little girl. I love her so much and I know that God loves her even more. She is definitely going to do something awesome for God one day. She surely will let Him(Jesus) manifest Himself to her and through her because: ((John 14:21 NKJV) He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.") And she is growing more and more to love Jesus everyday. I am so excited even though she is so young -- God shows no favoritism and so it does not matter what her age is. I refuse to put limits on my thoughts towards God because He is an infinite God and all things are possible in Him. She will grow up in the fear (reverent respect) and admonition of the Lord... She is an awesome blessing to us and a wonderful gift from God to us for His purpose and good pleasure. (Psalms 127:3 NKJV) Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.

God began to speak to Samuel at the age of 8... For more details read the book of 1Kings in the Bible.

A strong word of advice to parents please raise your child(ren) up in the ways of the Lord and with the Word of God with no compromise. It is the only thing that will last into eternity. It is the only thing that is profitable and will bear good fruits into their future. And it will last into eternity. Only what is done for Christ will last. This world has nothing to offer except worldly, godless pleasures for a season, and sin which equals death--eternal separation from God (Selah).

Why spend half your life/time doing unnecessary things, sowing unnecessary seeds, only to reach a point in your life and say to yourself oh, no, I have done the wrong things and then have to spend the next half of your life trying to undo what has been done. That's not wisdom, it's foolishness!
(Proverbs 1:7 NKJV) The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
(Proverbs 14:8 NKJV) The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way, But the folly of fools is deceit.
(Proverbs 14:12 NKJV) There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.
(Proverbs 8:11 NKJV) For wisdom is better than rubies, And all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her.
Last but not least those of you who may read this post -- I pray that it will bless you and please, please keep our family in your prayers --- specifically that our personal relationship with Him will only grow more and more each day and that His perfect will be done in our lives everyday. AMEN!!!
Thank you!
Be Encouraged!
