Mother’s Homeschool Journal – April 8

9 April 2011

In my life this week…

Baby chicks, bean sprouts, budding blueberries…..
I’m seeking to “see” the good and weed out the bad.  Our garden is a perfect picture of this.  The weeds are ever present, but God is calling us to focus on the fruit.  I planted bean seeds last Saturday and today, I was shocked to see that they are already an inch above ground.  It’s spring and there is life springing up all around.  God has been encouraging me to look beyond the tribulations and hold on to life and hope.

In our homeschool this week…

We began looking at each of the plagues in Exodus this week and seeking to understand what God was really saying through these judgments.  Each plague was designed to confront the false gods of Egypt.  The Egyptians had hundreds of gods, gods and goddesses of animals, insects, celestial beings, the earth, fertility, underworld, etc.  Pharoah himself was considered a god.  This explains why he was unwilling to submit to another God, the true God.  We looked at the plague of the Nile River turning to blood.  The Nile was a “life source” to the people of Egypt.  Several gods related to life, water and rivers were targeted in this plague.  One major god, Osiris, was believed to have Nile River water in his bloodstream!  The One True God demonstrated His superiority over these gods by turning the water to blood and taking away their life source.  He wanted them to see that HE alone is life and the One Who gives life to all.  He could have poisoned the water in some other way, but He choose blood because of all the bloodshed of innocent children being sacrificed by the Egyptians.

This seemed timely to me because of the crazy battle of the budget going on this week in our government.  One of the major sticking points in the inability to resolve our budget battle was whether or not we would continue to fund the killing of babies with tax dollars.  Are we any better than these ancient cultures that sacrificed their children to the gods?  Is not God looking upon our nation with the same burning in his heart – a burning of passion for the babies and a burning of anger toward the spirit of death and greed that consumes this nation.  Oh what lessons to be learned …….!

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

RockHOP – The House of Prayer in Round Rock.  This HOP has been operating in a church for 5 years, but in Feb. the Lord gave them their promise, a location in the heart of downtown Round Rock.  The Children’s Equipping Center is another component of this that we have been attending each week.  It, too, has been meeting at the church, but this week was the week God chose to have us cross over into the promise.  We met at the old location and drove together to meet at the new location.  This was a prophetic sign of us crossing over into our Promised Land.  It was a powerful demonstration for the children (and me) of how God is causing us to possess the promises He’s given.  Thank you, Jesus, that Your promises are “Yes” and “Amen.”

My favorite thing this week was…

A prophetic word from God to my daughter ….”Our family would be fruitful and multiply!”

What’s working/not working for us…

Spelling….sometimes the spelling tests produce lots of tears.  After a particularly bad time several weeks ago, I set aside time to have the kids spell their words out loud and do an informal spelling bee during the week.  Wow!  The spelling test this week went so well and it was a review week with many more words than normal.  I was so happy to get through the test with smiling faces!

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…

Homeschooling is such a gift from God.  I am ever thankful to have the opportunity to spend this time with my children, even through the difficulties.  We have a lot of fun together making precious memories.  We discuss God’s Word, study our family history in the Biblical characters, and look forward to each and every promise being fulfilled!

Such a cute little girl!
