Southeast Texas Homeschool Resources

Rest for the Weary by Jo Moody

We welcome back popular guest Southeast Texas homeschool blogger, Jo Moody who is sharing one of her classic blog postings discussing the joys of walking with God and some of the unexpected blessings that come with ministering to children.

I am so excited about yesterday. God just kept pouring out the blessings at the same time, binding up the enemy from stealing the moments!

The day started with something wonderful for my 15 yr old. Totally God!! AMEN!!

Then my three daughters and myself had some amazing hang time, we ate, we laughed, we drove and laughed some more.

Then we visited with my daddy and he was making us laugh more! What a joy!!homeschool resources Beaumont TX

We then headed to church for Wednesday night! LOVED IT!

Yesterday was my first day back from Sabbatical and God was pouring out the joy!

Let me tell you, my heart was beating so fast with excitement. I was back to lead Calvary Kids again after a beautiful rest!

I met two new boys last night, and they were a huge gift. At the end of the night, after the teaching, application and worship, they told me it was the best time they have had at church. When I was walking them over to childcare, one of them said “can we just hang out with you some more?”

My heart melted. My God was giving me the assurance that I was ready to be back. I am still tearing up hearing those words from this 4th grade boy…yes 4th grade boy! What a joy!!!

So, I am back, not with a full plate, but back doing what God has given me to do. His way, for His Glory!

I have not taken on huge leadership positions, but have stayed with my roots….in the children’s room, talking Jesus with Calvary kids! I am looking forward to this year. I am looking forward to what God has in store for me, for my family, and my ministry to both my own girls and to kids at Calvary.

I know that this rest was what God planned for me to do, as hard as it was, I rested in obedience to Him. So, I know He has huge Kingdom work for me both at home and at church. He knew I needed to rest and get prepared for the next lap of “this race He has set before me”.

So, I am running it with endurance knowing Who has the Victory!

Have a blessed day in the LORD!!!
