WHAT KIND OF HABITS ARE you creating during this time? I know this is a difficult season for all, our lives have changed drastically, our children’s lives have changed; but God doesn’t change and there’s things He requires of you.
Humans are creatures of habits and what you do during this time can create good habits or bad habits. What habits are you creating and allowing in your children?
I make myself get up before 7:00 am every morning (6:15 is my normal time), I have my coffee and read my Bible, do my devotions and pray. I do a workout. I make my kids get up by 9:00, no matter how late they stayed up. I shower and get dressed. I do not watch a movie until about 9:00 pm. (I don’t watch tv, but I’m a movie buff) I stay off FB or any other computer, game etc. I go for an afternoon walk. I study the Word and find people to call/text to encourage. “Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.” Ephesians 5:1
My prayer for this time is, “Show me what I can do for You.” I discipline my flesh and bring it into subjection and teach my children to do the same. (1 Cor 9:27) It’s too easy to be lazy. I try to keep some form of “normal” in my household. The Proverbs 31 woman doesn’t change because of a quarantine, nor does it give you the right to bury your talents.
What about you? Are you allowing your children to be sluggards? You’re creating a habit. Are you watching too much tv? Garbage in equals garbage out. The Bible says to “redeem the time because the days are evil”; make the most of your time here on earth for the Lord. Use this time wisely to prepare for what’s on the other side.
