“Life Skills”



It has been said, that our son has no “life skills”. In other words, he does not have a clue what it is going to take to live in the “real world”. I myself have been known to agree. Today however, on bended knee, I humble myself before the Lord. For I have learned, that our son’s “child-like faith” is bigger than anything we could ever say or do that would teach him otherwise, about life or living.

My husband and I “parent on purpose”. I have prayed essentially the same prayer for 22 years now… that prayer being, that God would grant he and I wisdom, concerning how that HE would have us to prepare our sons, for whatever plan or purpose that HE has for their lives.

I understand now, that “life skills” as it were, was not a part of the agenda concerning our eldest son. Otherwise, he surely would have declined the job offer that he has accepted today.

While some may say that our son has merely “accepted a position”, in reality… the Lord has just led him into full-time service and/ or ministry. Considering that our son is just 22 years old, coupled with the fact that he has a 4-year college education, his desire to serve the Lord in a manner which will count for all of eternity, without regard for personal gain, is bigger than me.

We have run the numbers and at the end of the day, there will not be enough money for room and board! Our son in true fashion however, will take this to the Lord, faithfully trusting that God will provide for his needs accordingly.

I do not understand! “Is this a test of my faith?!” I ask my Lord.

Or is this just a perfect example of God’s faithful answer to a parent’s cry for wisdom, befitting a purpose and plan, we are oblivious to the fact that we have failed to teach our son - “life skills”.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
