Homeschooling is not the answer. Now, to be clear, school is definitely not the answer! Easy Peasy’s curriculum is not the answer. Neither is any other. This book, that method, this resource, that game, this strategy, that set-up. None of it is the answer to whatever the situations are that your family is facing.
We all love an easy-to-implement program. Can we all say Easy Peasy? We don’t know how to fix our problems, so we rely on people who seem to have fixed theirs. The bad news is that no other person can figure it out for you and solve your problems. The great news is there is Someone who has all the answers.
Jesus is the answer. He’s the answer to everything. Yes, everything! Why do we turn to blogs and friends and online searches and try this and that and the other for our dilemma of the hour when we have the perfect source for all wisdom and knowledge? It must mean we either don’t have a relationship with Him or we don’t know Him well enough to believe He will hear and answer our prayers.
How can you get a relationship with the source of all wisdom and knowledge?
God is the perfect everything. That’s man’s problem. We got ourselves separated from this perfect source by our sin, our selfishness, this dumb idea humans have that we know what’s best for ourselves and that we should do as we please. It leads to every mess of a situation life brings to us.
To come to God, we have to humble ourselves and admit that we aren’t God. Understatement of the century! We confess that we no longer want to try and control our lives, and we give our lives over to Him. We ask Him to forgive us for all our sin, all those things we do that hurt ourselves and others, and ask Him to come into our lives to be our Father, to teach us, take care of us, and show us the way to live.
He can forgive us because Jesus took the punishment for sin, which is death. Jesus, as God come down to us in the flesh, was the only sinless, perfect person ever; He was the only one who didn’t have to die for His sin in order for justice to be done. That made Him able to take our death sentence for us, since He didn’t need to die Himself. He sacrificed Himself for us. When we are forgiven, we can receive His life in us. He comes to us by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit makes His home in us, and we let Him live His life through us.
With His ever-presence, we have the source of not just wisdom and knowledge, but the source of all true love, joy, peace, faithfulness, and so much more goodness than you can imagine.
If you have made this step or find yourself in the other category of just not knowing God well enough to trust Him to be your help in everything, consider reaching out. I have tons of Bible teaching on the site. The study called This Is Eternal Life might be a good place for you to start.
This year’s September Study will be released at the end of August. It’s called The Suffering Servant. Find purpose and joy in the trials and tribulations! For September, we’re all getting a free month of Mr. Phil TV, from Phil Vischer, creator of Veggie Tales. More on that when I release the September Study.
Good Morning, Lord! These are 2-minute teachings going straight through the Bible that you can read or listen to. There are more than 400 so far. You can find this on My EP. I was adding them to a playlist on Youtube, but I am thinking of not continuing that. If you really like having them as a playlist, you can ask me to keep adding them there.
Reminders from God’s Word – These are video teachings from various Scriptures. Lots on freedom from sin and God’s working salvation in our lives. This is a new page and I’m just adding as I have a new lesson I want to share. At the moment, I’ve been doing about four each week. There are just a couple dozen videos so far. This is NOT on My EP. If these are meaningful to you and you want to help out, consider helping with captioning.
Miracle Stories – Be encouraged to trust God to provide and protect and be your Good Father! I will at some point add more stories. There are new ways God is teaching us to trust Him to take care of us. He’s a good father! If you enjoy these, consider volunteering to help with captioning. That’s the hardest part of doing videos.
