Do you sometimes wonder if you were really called to homeschool? Homeschooling is hard at times, and you may feel like you’ve made a mistake or even like quitting. Remember, no calling is easy. No mission field is without difficulty.
You can try to run from it, and rationalize that this won’t work for you and your family, yet He opens doors. He paves the way. He starts to make it clearer each day. You may have struggles, but the open doors get wider and others close shut. You just KNOW that HE is calling you.
Answering the call to homeschool was one of the biggest blessings of my life. I can truly say I only do it by HIS power. It is not something I could ever have done on my own. The blessing comes from knowing you can point it all back to Him and say, “Look what HE does.” I could never do this without Him. He gets all the glory.
