Has your spiritual tank been running on empty? Is the joy of homeschooling a distant vapor in the past? If so, come and fill up on God's Word with the Daily Focus - a short, daily devotional for homeschoolers - by homeschoolers. Here's a sample:

God Is in the Dark

One of the favorite Bible songs my preschool children sang was “Who’s in the Middle of the Dark?”  During a time in their young lives when the unknown in the darkness frightened them, this song provided the courage they needed each night when I turned off the light.  I could hear them singing the answer, “God IS, I’m not afraid cause God is in the dark.”

Psalm 56:3 says, “What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.”  What types of fears do homeschooling mothers face?  Probably the biggest is the fear of failing – to suddenly realize that homeschooling was a mistake and now our children will have to suffer.  II Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”  Don’t allow Satan to use the darkness of an unknown future to trouble your heart.  God has given you a heart of love to motivate, a sound mind to instruct, and His power to handle daily decisions.  Trust Him one day at a time, and He will reassure you, too, that He is in the “middle” of your homeschooling day.

Lord, Sometimes I feel like I am in the middle of the dark; afraid of all the responsibility I have for homeschooling our children.  I pray that you take what I have prepared and use it to bless these children today.  Thank you for being there even when I cannot see you.  Help me to trust you more each day and realize that you are guiding us each step of the way. In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
