I’ve been watching and experiencing, as you have, the trampling upon the freedom of family life. It can make us weary, can it not? All we need and want is to live according to our beliefs, our unique identity, and to receive respect for God-given parental authority and choice.
There is a need for a confident boldness in being, family. What does this confidence look like? It means being unapologetic for the choice to have children and the truth that families are the cornerstone of civilization. Society, powers, economies, and countries cannot survive without families. Whether it be the myth-makers who spout lies about over population, or those who denounce families for harming the environment, or accuse them of interfering with “real” progress by holding fast to archaic ways, namely those of surrounding belief and world view.
Our strength must not wane in face of government that wants to raise our children, that wants to create laws that we know to be wrong for them, that wants to recreate and define nature, and that forces an agenda that removes parental attachment.
Do not be afraid to speak your mind to others. Do not shy away from stating your beliefs. Participate in the political process – unite in holy and righteous causes. Draw encouragement by gathering together with like-minded people so that you do not feel isolation in your family. Do not self-censor your thoughts, your expression, your voice. When you see or hear someone express the truth about family life, let them know you agree. Stand with them. Find a common voice with those who speak common sense.
Do not be afraid. Trust in God Creator of family life, in Jesus who lived in a family and is close to you, and the Holy Spirit who breathes love into our homes. Pray without ceasing that you retain family joy, peace, and are protected from the assault of the evil one.
If you might benefit from gathering a group together to hear me speak on the topic of Be Bold Families!, I am available to you.
