Wednesdays in the Word

What a blessing it was to read Psalm 127 today!

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of ones youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed.."

I used to call my kiddos "my rewards from the Lord," which was a long title to use. ; )
( I need to get back to that) Speaking the Word has power and it blessed them and it reminded me of the truth. Because sometimes it feels as if the "quiver" may self destruct. You know, when they are all fighting and annoying each other...
But the truth is, they are weapons! And one day, they will be 'shot' from our home and they will do some damage to the enemy's kingdom! Hallelujah!
May they fly, true and straight, wrecking havoc on the kingdom of darkness and pointing many to the SON.
