It’s been quite a while since I posted a Mommy Confession. With today’s post, I just want to encourage other parents who may be experiencing something similar to what I am going through. I have two “adult children” (actually “college kids”, but it’s just semantics, right?). While I am certain that my husband and I have laid a godly foundation, it becomes evident as I monitor social media outlets that this is not always the image that is reflected.
Just as I have to remind myself, I am reminding you to take heart. You may not see the desired results or that your adult children are making the best decisions for themselves. At some times, it may not even be evident that they grew up in a household that believes “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15b). With this taken into consideration, remember that those children belonged to God before He entrusted you with their primary care.
Your children, regardless of their age, still belong to God and He watches over them and protects them whether they realize it or acknowledge it. He did it for me when I was a wayward young adult and I’m so glad He did. If we would take a moment to think of what God has done in our own lives, we should rest easier that each of our children has their own path to follow, but God gets the final say.
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6 KJV).

This book was first suggested to me a few years ago. Perhaps it was timing or the busyness of life, but I finally got around to reading it this month. I had no idea what a treasure this book was, is and will continue to be. It is life-changing for all the right reasons.
The Shack causes you to look at the very things that have hurt you the most, examining your deepest emotions in safety and security without the fear of being judged. The manner in which the author develops this novel draws you in and you actually identify with the characters’ hurts, betrayals and eventual triumphs. My favorite line among many is “Forgiveness does not establish relationship”. Not only is this a book for my collection, but its going on my favorite book list.
Once you read it, you will find yourself looking for that special someone in your life to share it with. William Paul Young has done a great job!

System reboots have become a part of life. Once an upgrade has been received, you need to reboot the system in order for those upgrades to take effect.
What upgrades are inside of you awaiting a reboot? How many times has someone spoken something over your life that you have “received” but it has yet to manifest. Whether it is a promise, prophecy or revelation, it’s time to put it into action.
Join Impact Church at 7 p.m. each evening from Sunday, November 13 through Wednesday, November 16, 2011 for its first annual REBOOT conference. Hear from Dr. Marvin Sapp, Pastor Paula White, Pastor Keenann Knox and Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant about their personal reboot experiences as they encourage the Body of Christ. Be blessed with special musical guest Vashawn Mitchell, best known for “Nobody Greater”. It’s time to receive your upgrade and walk in the full manifestation of its power! Impact Church is located at 12844 Elmdale (at the corner of Dickerson), Detroit, MI 48213. See you there!
