The Answered Prayer I’ve Been Waiting For

It was 2 years ago that the Lord brought our youngest son, Peyton home from public school to be homeschooled. At the time my middle son, Wade, had already been taken out of public school however his path would take a different turn.

The Lord directed us with him to a private Christian School.

Each school year we would pray on what the Lord’s will was for Peyton and Wade.  As the Lord changed my heart for homeschooling I felt my heart tugging for Wade to be at home with us.

At the end of our first year of Homeschooling I thought the Lord was opening the door for Wade to be brought home. Things looked like they were lining up for this to happen. However the Lord did not open the door that year.

Isaiah 40:31 “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not fain”

I was disappointed I am not going to lie. The Lord just reminded me “I got this”. I remember saying to the Lord, I know you do but don’t you want him home with us? How can I help build his foundation on You if he is not home with us? Don’t you want his relationship to be stronger with his brothers?

He was silent on these questions.

I carried on with our second year of Homeschooling still praying to stay on the path God carved out for Wade so that I didn’t mess it up. I don’t know about you but I am always getting in Gods way. He is so patient and forgiving of me.

Last Friday I got my answer to this two year prayer!

Wade attended an event that our kids get to go to every year that draws them closer to God and builds relationships with the kids called Camp Dixie! It is always life changing for my son but this year was very different.

Me and Wade were having one of our long talks about how Camp Dixie went and boy did he share. I ask him what God had showed him and how He moved in him.

Pslam 27:14 “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!

He shared that he was not being real about his walk with Christ. He was just going through the motions. He knew what all to do to “look” like a Christ follower but was not being real.

I ask him what did being “real” mean to him?

He said “Mom being real means wanting to please God all the time.” I finally understand what it means to follow Christ.  I now know what I am suppose to do to bring others to Christ.

Sisters, I started crying right there!

My son couldn’t understand why I was crying. I explain to him that God just answered a two year prayer. I now know why you are in this Christian school and not at home with us. God has big plans for you at this school. He has given you some big shoes to fill. Your heart was ready to hear the words He had for you to full fill your calling at this school.

It all made sense what took place over the last two years. Every piece of the puzzle my son needed to get to this very moment in his walk with Christ!

We know all the time that God is working and know what is best for our children but we don’t know the full plan and it causes us to move too fast, not waiting on the Lords timing.

So I want to challenge you sisters, if you have been praying about your children and have not received an answer,

WAIT patiently. Keep moving forward in whatever season you are in. Hold fast to the one who moves at just the right pace.

He is always working, never sleeping.

He always has our children’s best interest at heart. We feel like God needs to move a little faster. However I learned that Gods timing is perfect, never late and always on time.

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your path”

Knowing that my son finally gets God and his purpose is SO worth the wait!

Watching his heart be on fire for Christ is priceless!

I know I’ll rush God again however it will be with anticipation knowing that when the answer comes it will wow me!

Chime in: Are you praying about your children and still waiting on the answer? Know that the answer will be reveal in Gods timing and it will be His very best!
