Readers Choice from Last Week:
This was shared by Sheena over at An Imperfect Life - Made Perfect By Grace.  She shared wonderful guidance on some specific ways we can instill "praying without ceasing" in our children: 

"So far in this series, we’ve emphasized the importance of praying for our children and how to teach them about God. Today’s post is all about encouraging our children to pray on their own.  For my husband and I, it started with praying together with the kids. For a while, they were silent spectators; but they soon realized that prayer meant just talking to Jesus, Whom they were well aware of. As parents, all we have to do is be vigilant and look for opportunities to encourage our kids to pray."

I was thoroughly encouraged by this post, shared by Paula over at Hopeful Future. Here is an excerpt of what she shared.  Please enjoy the post in its entirety here.

"This week has been a joy-filled week for me! I have had more peace in in my heart than I remember having in YEARS. Not because anything changed in my surroundings or in my day to day life, but because God has been changing my heart. He is teaching me to take joy in all things, and to be content even when things are not going the 'easy way' or the way I would like them to. There were so many things that happened this week that would normally get me down, stressed, moody and possibly kick me back into "depression mode", but none of them fazed me for more than a an hour or so. Just long enough for me to get a better perspective on things, and remember that it is all in God's hands."

Paula continued...  "I remember thinking to myself "it's always something"... wondering why I wasn't free from all these troubles. It would be so nice to be able to live without having to watch my 'weak areas' so that I don't go back to that dark place of depression.  There is literally 'always something' going on. There will always be something negative in my life...Things go wrong all the time, sad things happen, hurtful things occur daily, and it will be so until Jesus comes back. Jesus said we will have troubles here, but that we can find peace and comfort in Him."
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33

Give thanks to the Lord!  His love endures forever!
