His Other Hand

As most of you can probably tell by my header, my life verse is Isaiah 41:10.

We've been taking time to memorize the life verse for each member of our family during Bible class each morning for the past several weeks.

While working on the memorization itself I also like to probe the minds of my children in order to see what they are thinking in regards to each verse. The conversation surrounding my life verse went something like this:

Mama: Ok, can everyone tell me my life verse?

Peaches: Isaiah 41:10 --"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

Mama:
What does this verse mean to you?

Libbyline: That we don't need to fear.

Sweetcheeks:
God is with us.

JD Green:
Strong. He makes me strong and helps me.

Mama:
What does it mean to "uphold you with my righteous right hand" ?

Libbyline:
I'm not sure, but I know what He was doin' with His left hand!

Sweetcheeks:
Me, too, Mama! I know what He was doin' with His left hand!

Mama:
What?!?!

Together: He was creating the whole world. He is left handed just like us and created the whole world with His creative left hand. (They've been told often how left handers are creative and the only ones in their "right" minds. I guess I've been a bit vigilant about this as a lefty myself.)

I guess I was thinking way too small when I chose to have my children hide God's Word in their hearts. They've got more figured out than I'll ever begin to contemplate.

I'm just glad they are already beginning to live their lives without fear.

Don't you just love the perspective of children? They're so wise in their innocence.

OH, I love the idea of a life verse!!! Hope you don't mind if I begin to medicate and pray over it and borrow the concept. (((hugs)))

Isn't it amazing how much God reveals to our children? I think their hearts are so open to him, that they're just able to see Him more. My daughter just recently accepted Christ, and it's blown me away to see how much He's worked in her heart already!

I'm telling you, your kids are already treasures for his kingdom here on earth!

I love the idea of life verses. That's something I may have to ponder for a while.
