Fuel: How to miss a childhood and a song

August 20, 2012 in Faith that Shines,fuel,kids and technology

Blog posts sometimes go viral. Some make the news. Some circulate around a certain group of bloggers. Today’s fuel is a blog post that has been convicting mommy bloggers all summer. But maybe you missed it or maybe you are just a friend of mine who mostly reads my blog and not others. This post is a must read—pass it on. It’s called “How To Miss a Childhood.” And to be fair, the entire blog Hands Free Mama will convict you to keep your priorities straight.

And a second fuel for you today. A song by one of my favorites, Christa Wells. It reminds me of my high school days when I started following the Lord.  I was realizing then that what Christa sang about was true….at some point every one and everything could be taken from me or disappoint me or hurt me deeply. And I knew I needed an anchor. Thankfully as I was realizing this truth about the world, I attended a Young Life camp and heard the whole story of Jesus, my anchor. Happy Monday.

Thanks for sharing that article, Laura. I read all kinds of blogs, and somehow I missed that one. Definitely a good one to put into practice.

I enjoyed that video clip–a good meditation for me this morning.

Stopping by from SITS.

{Melinda} As always, I’m encouraged by reading your post. My daughter is 15 and has gone to Young Life camp twice. It has been the best experience. She’s struggling, as most teens do, between what the world has to offer and what she knows to be true and right. I keep pointing her back to the Anchor. We are all lost without Him.

Love this song. It seems there is an epidemic of blog posting these days about boundaries, priorities and not losing balance to what is important to us. I am thankful for that-it is sending a message. = )

I’m a new follower and I have to tell you I am so thankful for that song you posted. I have been struggling with a major life decision and have been asking for help above in my answer.. All week, he’s been speaking to me in so many powerful ways and then there was your song here and it was like it was one more message I needed to here that my choice and decision I am making is right. Looking forward to following you.

I’m going to follow you on Facebook-it’s easier. = )
