I have had a nervous stomach all day...
Started out with a conference with my daughter's teacher.
That went okay, I knew exactly what the teacher was going to say, "your daughter seems to have a lack of focus that is necessary for learning the material this year for the tests in the spring."
I am well aware of the "lack of focus" in my daughter, we have been dealing with it for a very long time. I have gone down the sticker route, been kind and encouraging, yelled until I am purple, threatened loss of privilege, everything under the sun and NOTHING seems to work.
She has been check from top to bottom and still nothing.
So, as I am driving to work this morning to play with 12 3 year olds, I hear a still small voice whisper, "Tell Me." Of course this just reduces me to tears. Not a surprising result, I can cry over a Hallmark commercial, but this was different. They were tears of frustration, crying out, "I Just Don't Know What To Do Anymore." I parked my car and told Him what he already knows.
1 Peter 5:7 says, "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." I have to remember the word ALL. I also need to "Be still and know that He is God." -Psalm 46:10 He is not finished with who my daughter is or will become and he has plans for her that I know nothing about.
