Psalm 27:4 "One thing have I desired; that will I seek after. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life."

Musing with a sad heart

I spend alot of time (too much, maybe) on the Sonlight forums getting words of wisdom and some humor from other homeschool moms.  Today I was reading a post about the "health and wealth" gospel.  I shouldn’ t have, I know.  I got my heart broke.  Maybe I need a new set of homeschool mom’s, or maybe I need to stop reading things when I know where the conversation is going. 

At our first Bible study with our Care Pastors, one of the men shared how Ps. 1:1 affected him.  "Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful;"  

So often we think of the scornful as the unsaved, but how often are we the scornful?  How often do we scorn people, or situations, or events that we don’t like?  How often are my words…’scornful’?  Maybe God used that post to remind me that when the homeschooling gets tough, I should turn to HIM and not the the seat of the known scornful.

Just reflecting on the pond.

    I understand you sadness in this completely, and yet I agree completely with the thought that we do need to turn to Him first in all things. My prayers are with you that God would encourage your heart in this situation.

    Thank you, oldfashionedgirl. I was overwhelmed with how saddened I was by the comments that were made. I understand the pitfalls of the movement and have had times myself when Satan has tried to pull my focus off of the gospel and onto the preacher. I appreciate your prayers and your encouragement. Maybe I'll see you around sometime 🙂
