Whisperings

Some of you know I have lots of children. Seven to be exact, and most of them are older and Most of them are young men except for one boy.  


Lately one of my youngmen have been struggling. He works at an amusement park, and is around people all day long who standards, or morals do not quite match what we(through God's grace) have tried to instill in him. All day long he is whispered at about what he should have, and what he should be doing at "his age". 


Today while reading the Word these verses stood out....




Proverbs 23

15 My son, if thine heart be wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine.
16 Yea, my reins shall rejoice, when thy lips speak right things.
17 Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long


His heart started to "envy" what these whisperers were saying to him and started to feel like he has been missing out on something in life. 


Really? 
How do we envy sinners? 
How do we as professing believers say "I want what they have" or " I wish my life was like theirs" 
Truth be told if we are asking for their lives(and sin) then we are also asking for the same judgement they will face some day when Our Savior returns to this world. 


How we so easily forget....
Romans 6
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.


People make sin sound and look so appealing. Of course, they do not want to go it alone. Be Careful dear sweet son, keep your eyes open and your ears peeled to those whisperings and realize who it is really speaking, and who it is really tempting you away from the path the Lord has for you!


Ephesians 6
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;


Be strong my sweet youngmen for we are not reaching for things that are temporal but we are reaching for things that are eternal! 

In Christ I Serve,
Mom/Angie

  3. Good stuff. This is the way to bring your son back to right thinking. I hope he heeds these words and desires truth, while being a blessing to all the lost souls he sees throughout his day. Thanks for sharing, wise mom of boys.
