Hope, faith and love

Human made in His image. Body, soul and spirit all working as one to form who we are. When does a child become anxious? Feelings of falling and grasping for air during one of the stages of sleep. Clinging to a parent as though one might me snatched away, watching or hearing stories about the dark and allowing curiosity to lead to seek out more when it is clear it scares you. Hearing and repeating words that are dark against ourselves and the ones we love. It seems it takes us away from the truth and down a path we sometimes need help to come back. Proving that we should not be alone and surrounded in covenant relationships. The hope is that our parents are able to discern these challenges if they appear or as they appear. Teaching the laws in the book because in them there is life as scripture says. Taking our children away from the things we were exposed too is a dangerous experiment. Sunday school and church, praying every night, giving thanks for the food we eat, serving one another and keeping his words throughout our homes and on our lips. Seeking far off cultures for answers and applying those as replacement because the world normalized it. I don’t want to even hint I understand these things but I know how heartbreaking it is to see a child struggling and don’t know how to help ground the child. Jesus explains us best.

I look at the world having spent many years studying science, this amazing tradition of observing the world and documenting it for another to replicate. It does not have the affect of making me question who God is because his words tell me. I am so humbled when I look out on water which is made of two parts hydrogen, the primary element in the sun and oxygen the element that efficiently empowers my blood that holds life. I am deeply humbled by these things as I watch the rains comes down the mountains and through the land purging it and heading towards the sea. Looking deeper at these simple elements amd watching them combine in us as well as on the earth, from the cleansing work through hydrogen peroxide h2o2. Hydrogen, really makes up 75% of the sun? Creating surface temperatures at ~10000 degrees, coincidently similar to the core of our earth that has a similar temperature. All neighbors planets not suitable for life but this 3rd plant protected by O3/ozone that help protects us along with the magnetic field. Gravity pulling the oxygen near so we can breathe the very breath you just took while reading this… and another… I only see a loving God who thought of all these things and spoke them into existence. Only thankfulness and awestruck praise I should have when all things including the stars still praise His work now and forever. My simple understanding can never compare to his thoughts so all questions if I have any comes with joy and wonder like a child wrapped in respect, honor and humility.

May God continue to bless our beautiful nation. Kidstrive hope is to move families towards wholeness.

Loving union

When a man and woman unite and the two becomes one in the union. Love brings about great miracles spoke into existence since the beginning and all the words spoken created yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Truth – Children are a blessing and when we unite in union, we are to come into agreement to the purposes our Heavenly Father has for His children.

“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.””
‭‭John‬ ‭14:6-7‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Law – Children are seeking direction in the way they should go. We are are taught to pass the laws from our Heavenly Father to our children so they can pass it to their children. In his commandments instructions are given to our children, let’s point them towards it and don’t abandon it. We must draw near so so we can demonstrate for our children.

Culture – It’s the atmosphere and environment that our children are subjected too. The invitation of peace and truth has been given to us. Parents, please be aware of the cultural messages that come at our children from all sides. Oneness is a must for our children anything else is too costly.

The events in the news has shown us the power of an atmosphere. My condolences for those who lost their lives. Let us teach our children the truth because there is only one. We are only made in one image.

Blueprints on how to build a home to completion through, knowledge, understanding amd wisdom.

Attached to the source in order to yield good fruit.

How can we find the one to partner with in building a home on firm foundation? Although it may be important, it is not enough to place your faith on the ability to provide. Despite what society tells us it may be shallow to think all you need is provision when this can be lost in an instant. Building a family that last is based on so much more in pursuit of becoming one with the body of Christ.

Here a few scriptures without added words for you to receive what’s necessary for your home. This series will have 4 scripture at a time, feel free to seek more information by looking up each of them and reading the scripture surrounding each.

“Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you. Rejoice in the wife of your youth.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭5:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬
https://www.bible.com/116/pro.5.18.nlt

“Didn’t the Lord make you one with your wife? In body and spirit you are his. And what does he want? Godly children from your union. So guard your heart; remain loyal to the wife of your youth.”
‭‭Malachi‬ ‭2:15‬ ‭NLT‬‬
https://www.bible.com/116/mal.2.15.nlt

“Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, “Life is not pleasant anymore.””
‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭12:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬
https://www.bible.com/116/ecc.12.1.nlt

“May he restore your youth and care for you in your old age. For he is the son of your daughter-in-law who loves you and has been better to you than seven sons!””
‭‭Ruth‬ ‭4:15‬ ‭NLT‬‬
https://www.bible.com/116/rut.4.15.nlt

Hopefully these words are a blessing to those who are called to build a family, those seeking what to look for in a partner, those who need direction in leading their home to be on firm foundation , and for those who want to give life to their home arms and not use the folly words that plant the seed of division in their home. Speak words of life in your home.

Foundation key.

Kidstrive to be rooted in a tree that is one.

Keeping our children safe.

Protecting the light. Light is void of darkness

How can we convince our children that the rules we have are there to keep them safe?

Is there something we could say, or do, or maybe we have lost something ourselves and are in need of direction? Right, what do we know if we don’t know the Truth.

Should we tell them to listen to us because we love them. What about what their friends say? Do we do it by stating or explaining what laws are and agents assigned to help enforce that law in our society will cover us all? Do we plead with them or by giving them all the desires they have and they ones they muster in their hearts? This list can go on for a long time…. and is any of it affective consistently. Demonstration of the effectiveness of a united, collective system walking out the Law in each and ever family is the only way we can ensure safety to the foundation. Just like we are loved that we inherit a beautiful planet/home that was created in a system with all that it needs, void of nothing and shielded from the darkness. So we should create and maintain the foundation of family we received so our children can inherit a world filled with life and growth.

This is only a theory, if we teach that the law is there to maintain foundation principles in a society not to win our personal agenda cases. They are there because the people we love, we protect. Through love, love flourishes and then radiates to penetrate the heart / subconscious mind of another in order to do it all again. This precious love filled with the truth, and void of contaminants that lead a society in the wrong direction. Things that are anti to truth and love breeds lies that are dangerous to life, purpose and our identities and that of our children. darkness being the absence of light has no power over light but yet still wants to participate in light knowing that it could never be light. Parents allow the light to fill your home keeping darkness at bay. It has no power here.

Instead teach them to be agents of the one true Teacher. Kidstrive to perpetuate love and life from one family to another so that no one should be in the darkness, absent of light. All worthy of a chance to be welcomed.

How can water carve with its power but be contaminated with a drop of ink. And then there is hope.

Words in contrast and association for the family to get understanding

  • Faith and Fear – Peace
  • Truth and lies – justice
  • Honor, respect and glory
  • Wise and Foolish
  • Knowledge, understanding and wisdom
  • Will and Self control.

Be aware when reviewing, it’s helpful to research these preconceived knowledge and if there is, place it through what the books of the Bible says. The dictionary can serve for cultural and historical context but you may be surprised by the congruence.

Hopefully they serve as good discussion and insight for your family.

Children carry our DNA and that’s not even the half of it. What they carry in essence are an essential part of what it means to be human!

Kidstrive to honor their parents and serve their purpose by perpetual proliferation of the love they received multiplied.

Can’t wait to speak

What if we felt like we were never heard. Everyone seen like someone to hide complex things from. Children and teens would understand things if the language was translated or spoken in words they knew. Their voice and cries going unnoticed because their words too are not understood. It possibly would be like a citizen of a foreign land that enjoyed Arnold Schwarzenegger movies but unable to understand the language without the subtitles.

Our understanding of things as human beings young or old can are all digestible but only if prepared correctly and we possess the equipment necessary to engage. Babies consume carrots in a purée form because the digestive system is entirely not ready for carrots in the raw, carrots sliced, baked roasted or in any other form that require teeth and saliva as the basic components of digestion. With all that being said they still eat the same carrot. The denial of the basic understanding of a unit is not something we get to withhold from children. A child having to be shared by parents is complex for adults as is, please don’t think if it is masked with niceties that a clear level of explanation will not be needed. Children need answers just as much as we do and dislike when they don’t have it just like us but possibly in a worst way. The formation of identity is a delicate process that by any measure seems to be best done when rooted in stability. The countless reasons for separations is not one to take likely when it involves so much hurt, so please know that this is not written to add to anyone’s pain. I like most, don’t like to see anyone suffer so my prayers go out to you.

Instead this is to bring to light the cries of the child, teen and young person. The sensitive subject that this is calls for an awareness that the children involved have a tremendously difficult time with this because of all the obvious reasons. But imagine that you were placed in a strangers home and a sheet was tossed over your head while having to navigate the entire home. Kids going through this tend to experience something akin to this in my humble opinion. Grace to them……

As parents adults, we must be mindful to speak the truth to our little ones in an age appropriate language that they can understand. Please hear the message that the things hidden eventually come to the light so take the time to identify them just like you would identify a lion or any other dangerous thing to a child.

The changes to these fundamental parts of life are important in growth and development so let’s love our children and teach them truth because there is only one.

Hopefully these words, though not easy, can serve another. The children carry all the DNA of the two that are divided so one could only imagine the feelings of a child with limited understanding when their flesh is torn. With a clear mind observe their behavior because that is the only way you may know. Their words will not be comprehendible.

My thoughts and prayers goes out to all the children and families affected by this storm but like all storms that come in there severity, it too will pass. Please turn to God in or out of the storm. Love each other even when we must walk separate paths.

Kidstrive to be oriented in the direction they should go when part of their world was destroyed.

Kidstrive to be treated in a way to foster healthy growth.

Time and change are two of the biggest things that can affect the growth of a child. Ponder the thought that a child stays in the safety and protection of a mother’s womb for 9 months in order to reach full maturation. This maturation is so wrapped in time for the changes to take form in a healthy environment. When a child arrives we are fascinated by the delicate nature of this beautiful little one. We must gain an understanding of how the brain as well as the body develops because it would give us a better sense of the cost of negatively timed disruptions in growth. Take a moment to imaging your most joyous memories and how you have carried them as your grew. Now, think about the ones that were marked with pain. These memories can be as vivid as if it were yesterday for some. I imagine in my humble opinion that the innate abilities to protect itself could be left in deeply rooted confusion after a traumatic event. The same brain with reflexes in place at birth can be left wondering what went wrong if placed in a sudden onset or extended traumatic situation. The brain is looking for normalcy in homeostasis as it tries to process the event with stress hormones and other chemical regulation in the body. Wherever or whatever is associated with that memory that left trillions of living cells in utter confusion. A nurturing environment must now serve double duty to help the child move past the event with possible little to no effect if they are one in the same.

Get professional support through any event that produced lingering effects that weren’t previously present. Any an all changes should be noted and brought to the attention of the Primary Physician.

Kidstrive to grow

Culturing peace within the home.

Our children and family as a whole should enter the home expecting it to be a place of peace. This peace is freely giving to us by our Heavingly Father.

In order to walk in this peace it has to be cultured into the home through the values, belief and intentionality of the individuals within this system. It starts with the spiritual leader of the home. The person and support tasked with teaching these beliefs and values. Parents must take and hold these expected standards seriously through consistent teaching until it becomes second nature to all that dwell within the home. The values also has to become apparent to those who frequent the residence like, help, Grandparents, Cousins, Aunts and Uncles to name a few. These are not to make anyone uncomfortable but just known expected conduct to those that interact in and throughout your home.

Culturing this peace clearly takes a grounding in identity for all with little to no variance in fundamental beliefs. The goal at minimum should be to have weekly meeting discussing these truths’ as they encounter outside influences. Outside influences can only be regulated by the security of self by the individuals as they leave the home on a day to day basis.

Some examples of the things that can be cultured:

  • Calling or speaking to others outside their given names like: Stupid, curse words intended to degrade another.
  • Profanity in the home.
  • Speaking to others inside and outside the home in ways that are not peacable.
  • Treating others with love, kindness and gentliness.
  • Preferring words that uplift and build up another.
  • Cleanliness geared towords efficiency and accessibility of work in the home.
  • Holding Knowledge as a natural and higher choice over mind numbing consumption.
  • Keeping Understanding as a “guest” in the home and within every conversation.
  • Compassion superior to personal passions. “How can we serve otheres”.
  • Creation as the foundation of work in and from the home.

Culturing peace clearly takes a level of intentionality that has to be agreeed apon by all and grown like a “laboratory culture” within pocket/segments. These positive aspects should be grown within the specific gifts and strengths of the individuals of the home, then shared and expanded through open discussions and praise.

Yes, this and all that surround it can be easier said than done but I have found them to be near impossible to achieve without God at the center. Hoping for all the success within your home and hopeful these words can serve as support. The home is a spot where love and peace should live as we come in to be renewed from the outside. Wisdom and understanding should always be welcomed.

#Kidstrive to be taught how to culture peace within everyspace they enter.

Through the important question of How???

Our children have several questions as they grow. The question of how things work is deeply rooted in gaining a healthy understanding of the world.

Listen attentively to these questions as they present. They serve as opportunity to gain their confidence and your ability to keep them safe. This question is roots their ability to critically think. It appears after a few bumps and bruises that the had no foresight for, with faint to no understanding of consequences at this point. Some opportunities may slip through but it’s important you be there as they root themselves in reality as they form judgment of the things around in their environment.

Imagination is a major part of their thought and should not be diminished because of its ties to play that is associated with their understanding of the social construct. The ability to form sound judgment in the decision making process will typically need guidance of the teacher’s in their life “Dad and Mom.” These need to done in your presence so be present for these opportunities. They are not to be handed to a care giver especially when not at work because guiding this process could possibly be tied to what it means to be a parent.

This is specially significant in a time where religious beliefs, faith based practices are minimized in the home. Storytelling, family readings, faith based activity, “family devotions,” and one on one talks with deep intimacy are critical to their development. Understand to everything there is a purpose and to everything a cost and consequence for omissions, no matter where you stand currently. There are some essentials kids need for the soundness of mind. This is especially important in the areas of Fears, addictions, vanity, sadness, isolation and depression, behaviors and some other things that can have a negative effect on thriving.

Keep on alert for the how question as they learn and grow. Think of all the areas where critical thinking is needed at high levels like Math and Science to name a few.

Some of the initial question like:

  • Question about clouds and rain!
  • How Air works?
  • How water behaves?
  • How much in boundaries of quantity.
  • How long until you return that has deep roots in a common lagger in understanding of time and change.
  • How birds fly?
  • How to play various games to give understanding of give and take in association with turn taking.
  • How did I get here?

As you might be aware if you have been around little ones those questions come in the thousands so:

  • Place priority to knowledge and understanding in the home and when seeking caregivers.
  • Creativity should also be made a priority.
  • Routine can also be important in association with time and expected outcomes.
  • Intimacy in conversation and general care. Slow anger and minimal frustration should be shown as negative behaviors present. Keep your instruction on repeat in anticipation of the action and limited at the time of the event. Correct firmly in love and quick to forgive.

How do you do that Dad?

How come Mom?

Speak to it now while you have there air so when they have the ability to decide they choose to continue to heed your voice along with the morals and values held. They will take your voice with you as they grow even outside your presence, so speak things of value that last.
