During a breakout session at our recent church conference, I was placed with a group of 4 other adults. One woman was a grandmother, another man and woman had 3 grown children each, and one man was finishing college. The question was posed to each of us, “What would you like to see in your lifetime?” As I surveyed the group, a pleasant thought occurred to me and I stated, “I would like to see my grandchildren!”
The oldest woman, who was a grandmother, chuckled and said, “Your kids are only teenagers!”
“I know, “ I replied. “But it is still something that I wish!”
I am very proud of and thankful for my 2 children. And as I watch them both grow, it is my heartfelt wish to see them become godly adults and raise a godly family. God honors our families and also desires for us to see our grandchildren.
May you see your children's children!
Children's children are the crown of old men, and the glory of children is their father.
I am greatly comforted that God addresses all of our desires, spoken and unspoken. On top of the exceedingly abundant blessings He has already showered upon me, He seeks to bestow further blessings through my children and grandchildren. It is never too early to seek God’s blessings within the lives of our children and hopefully, grandchildren!
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
