Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him.
The worries we once had we shouldn’t have anymore with God on our side. For that reason we never stop trusting in Him to be everything He said he would be. Everything may not always be perfect but the Beabled trust the promises of God are always true. We know that Christ has paid the cost to heal us so we need not fear for our health because He sustains us under His wings. Healing don’t always happen like we think it should sometimes there is a purpose in it not happening right away. The mysteries of God exceed our comprehension. He has a purpose in all things including our healing. Jesus walked by the man at the gate beautiful many times but his healing was needed later so people would have faith and be saved. The Beabled have no doubt in the healing power of God and we seek for it to come when it brings Him the glory. If we take care of everything we can do, stay active and pursue Him all we can do is live and trust in His greater plan. The Beabled never stop until the glory comes and leaves us forever. Parents, loved ones and caregivers are a big part of the team and in many ways share the disability. It is important to raise our children when they face a disability so they can live the Beabled lifestyle. Children and anyone we take care of are a reward from the Lord. We are more blessed by giving care to than the one who is receiving it. Our heritage is what we invest ourselves in and we choose the quality of it by how we managed it. This is true as a care giver; our child, loved one or patient is our investment and we should manage things so their quality of life will be better.
Follow the spirit in these words every situation is different so apply these principles accordingly. All children even those with disability need to be taught right from wrong and we must find ways to teach them or the disability will rule over everyone involved. We cannot pity our child to the point of ruining them (Proverbs 13:24). Discipline will help them along the way so they can learn to be the best they can be. We teach our kids and encourage them to honor our instruction so they can live a long life and make the right choices. We need to disciple them not to rule over them but to love them and train them to trust in the Lord (Ephesians 6:1-4). Discipline is not meant to be harsh and isn’t always punishment it’s mostly proper instruction and being an example (1 John 3:18). If our children don’t have the proper instruction how would they ever make it on their own? Some disabilities may mean that won’t happen without a miracle. But if we give proper instruction they will get used to what’s right and it will help things run smoothly (Proverbs 22:6). Good discipline will give us peace and make them be our delight (Proverbs 29:17). We help our child Beabled by loving them and teaching them to love God. To do this we should pray together, cry or laugh with them and support their abilities being proud of what they can do. The hard decisions and the seeking God is for the parent. We should feel no lack of faith in seeking medical assistance or equipment to make their life better. Discipline not only keeps a child from death it gives them a good quality life and that fills our hearts with joy (Proverbs 19:18). As care givers we cannot spare good discipline or we will ruin who we care for. No matter how disabled our child is if we love them we will guide them to do the right thing (Proverbs 13:24). In many ways our choices make our children our reward.
We will be expanding the reach of Tuesdays Torch to shine our light so others can see it and be saved. We pray the words of this Tuesdays Torch and every Torch will sink into the hearts and minds of readers. Please feel free to forward The Torch to others so we can encourage them with its message. If there are any churches or ministries that could benefit from the sharing Tuesdays Torch please let us know so together we can spread the light into dark places. We pray the Lord will continue touching every reader. All of what Christ did He did so we would believe. He told us not to believe because of what He said but in what He did (John 14:11). Every Tuesdays Torch we talk a little more about what He did and talk about what He is still doing. The best thing God has ever done was sending us His Son so we could be saved (John 3:16). If anyone is not a believer our prayer is that they will meet the Lord. If anyone wants to make Jesus Christ their Savior send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help it happen. Look out for next Tuesdays Torch by email or find it on Facebook by searching Tuesdays Torch. Thanks and God Bless!
No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16
