God has a Plan

I teach the Pre-K Sunday School class once a month at our church.  My son Sam is in my class.  This past Sunday I was teaching them about prayer.  The scripture reference was Jeremiah 29:11-13.  I was going to explain to the children that God has a plan for their life.  Before doing so, I asked them what their plans were for when they grow up.  I had several answers such as a policeman, a fire fighter, an airport worker, etc.  But the response that came from my son provided me with one of those moments as a mother that I was somewhat speechless.  He said with unabashed pride, “I am going to be a garbage man when I grow up!”.  I smiled kindly at my co-teacher as the pastor’s son said, “I’m going to be a preacher.”  I’m sure his mom and dad would have been proud.  🙂

In all seriousness, though, whatever my son chooses to do with his life, I pray that it will be the perfect plan that God has for him. 

As a little side note-his favorite movie right now is Toy Story 3 and there is huge scene in the movie that is located at the city dump.  He is fascinated with that movie.

Strongholds

I had a strange dream last week.  Too strange to even attempt to describe.  However, when I awoke the explanation of the dream was very clear.  I know that this was a spiritual dream and I feel like the Lord is trying to say something to someone through it.  I will definitely take what I learned and apply it in my life and I pray that it is a revelation for others as well.  The interpretation is as follows:

Why do we try to put chains on the strongholds (the enemy, the devil, Satan, spiritual stumbling blocks) in our life?  We need to destroy the stronghold, not try to control it.  When we try to control it, fear will always be present in our life.  When we defeat the stronghold, we can live a victorious life. 

What is the stronghold or sin in your life that you think you can control?

2 Corinthians 10:4  “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.”

Proverbs 22:1

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
