It came to me today, that as a mom I deal not only with external influences upon my children but rather internal. Although the external are more easily noticeable (movies, music, magazines other media...), there is, however, an equal amount of forces coming from within the child that needs to be addressed and guided. I know that might be obvious to some, but today was my day to awaken to the need to train the inner behaviors of my children. So many times, I am thinking of how to protect them from the world around them, that I am not as concentrated on guiding them from the thoughts and actions and attitudes that are bound up within them. I believe if I can guide them into right or "righteous" thinking, attitudes, and heart issues then I've truly won a huge battle. Let's keep praying not only for things that war against our kids on the outside, but mind sets and thoughts and things that war within them.Capture the heart, win the man.
