‘Tis the Season

Katie King Katie King

As seems to be typical of our family, we’ve had some changes yet again. Most significantly, we are back to homeschooling! While there were a lot of negative reasons that prompted us to reconsider our schooling options, I became increasingly convicted while memorizing Deuteronomy 6:1-9 that our positive reasons for homeschooling hadn’t changed just because I was tired and the kids went crazy. So, I’ve returned to my role as teacher-mom, and I’m glad! Even with a baby, a preschooler, teaching two grade levels, managing the home while PJ works 50-60 hours a week, and striving to keep my OCD-introvert self in check, I’m confident that this is the right way for us to teach our kids what is good. It’s an incredible opportunity for me to depend on God’s grace.

As I was preparing to teach at home again, God began an important time of sanctification that is still ongoing. The theme of this time is season. “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…a time to keep, and a time to cast away” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 6b)

It is the time to keep…

It is the time to cast away…

While perhaps this won’t end up being my very favorite season of life ever, I can rest upon my Savior, knowing that He chose this season for my good and His glory, before I was even born (Psalm 139:16). In the long hours of parenting and teaching and seminary-supporting, He is there, always giving more grace.
