31 days of training my kids: lyrics i love

What can some lyrics to a song you love possibly have to do with training your kids?

You might be surprised.

I find that so often my day is won or lost within the first hour of being awake. (Though there are definitely days when this doesn’t happen and you have to find a way to redeem them. Maybe more ideas on that later.)

Back to directing your day attitude early on. Though most of us mothers of little ones would love to spend a long amount of time in the morning reading or praying, it is often not possible. I have found that one of the best ways to direct your thoughts towards eternal things in the morning is to rehearse Scripture that has been put to memory or lyrics to songs you love.

Sometimes when I’ve been searching through my memory for a good song, I find ones that are robust with theological truth are hard to find. I don’t need a song with just one good line here or there, I want truth after truth to prepare my heart for the day.

Here is one I’m learning right now. I don’t have it all the way memorized yet, but hopefully soon!

I love the “big picture” perspective.

Your glorious cause, O God, engages our hearts 
May Jesus Christ be known wherever we are 
We ask not for ourselves, but for Your renown 
The cross has saved us so we pray 
Your kingdom come 

Let Your kingdom come 
Let Your will be done 
So that everyone might know Your Name 
Let Your song be heard everywhere on earth 
Till Your sovereign work on earth is done 
Let Your kingdom come 

Give us Your strength, O God, and courage to speak 
Perform Your wondrous deeds through those who are weak 
Lord use us as You want, whatever the test 
By grace we’ll preach Your gospel 
Till our dying breath

Let Your Kingdom Come , Bob Kauflin
