Raising Children with an Eternal Mindset

The concept of an eternal mindset is so challenging while our flesh is still here on earth.  There's a reason we feel a constant tug for more, a sense of general unease even on the sunniest of days.  We're homesick.  Homesick for our real home in Heaven.  When I wrap my mind around this, I find it SO much easier to let the stress of this life melt away.   Our true prize, our joy, our hope, is in Jesus and that will fully be realized when we're in Heaven with Him!

Until then I try to teach my boys that no matter what disappointments they face, it's only a tiny blip of time compared to the eternity we'll have with Jesus.  To be the light in those moments to others so that people will wonder how they can be hopeful in times of despair.  We're learning what that looks like for 9 and 15 year old boys lol but I'm so thankful that I can pray this prayer and ask for God's help whenever I need it... which is constantly 😆😇

I hope you find this verse and prayer encouraging as you lead your children and loved ones today!
