As a step mother I have been watching over two young children, they are my husband’s two kids; and I wonder at the things these two get up to.  The one can come up with the most fascinating stories, this happened today and that happened today.  If anyone else says something like ‘I had a dream last night’ and then proceeds to tell of their dream.  The other child would just would interrupt the story telling and tell you their dream was scarier and more exciting.  I find they are competing with one another all the time.
It seems that they both lack in listening skills, they hear when you talk to them but they never really seem to listen to the request or statement.  It is really difficult to work with them as they both seem to be in competition with me and want to make me stand in their shadow.

At first it worked on my nervous and now I just look at them and wonder what they hope to active by acting like they do.  One day hopefully when they grow up and reach the age of adulthood I hope that they would have learned how to listen and how to carry out instructions.  I hope that they one day would be good adults with high standards.  I believe in time they too will aspire to be good in everything they do.  I am teaching them to try and achieve a better mark in school reports and to pay attention to detail and make sure that everything is in its place.

It is my hope and dream that I too may be of value to each of my children one day.  Many times I think of the things I learned from my own mother and not forgetting my father.  I still admire them and think the world of them, the time and efforts they put into my own life.  I hope to be an inspiration to the two young children and I hope that I am able to inspire my grown children and grandchildren.  I love all my children and I love my grandchildren too.  I can only praise the Lord Jesus for this gift of children in my life.

Acts 2:38-40 (ICB)38 Peter said to them, “Change your hearts and lives and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is for you. It is also for your children and for all who are far away. It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.”40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
