Over the last few months I have been watching the Jill and Jessa Counting On specials and now the series. Jill and Jessa airs Tuesday nights on TLC. I have been touched by Anna Duggar’s statement to “Do the next right thing.”Anna says she got it from a pastor. It is such a wise piece of advice.
So many people tell us to live day by day but in reality sometimes that is too much to comprehend. We have to go on a moment by moment bases. We must choose our actions and reactions carefully. Additionally, as Christians we are held responsible for our very thoughts. Those that do not line up with Him we have to hold captive.
Anna has handled her situation with such grace. She has been hurt yet she continues to rely on God for her strength. She is allowing herself to be healed by her creator. She shows such wisdom for her years. Please join me in praying for this example of how to live life more peacefully.
Of course as often happens when a saying gets me thinking a poem ends up forming in my head.
- Mother’s Prayer
- Lord please let me do the next right thing
- No matter what life may bring
- I have to leave a legacy
- for my girls and boys
- I want them to look back and see
- that no matter what the situation
- Mom made the right choice.
- It is important for them to know
- I made each decision
- with the one Who loves us so
