There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears. Philippians 1:6 (The Message).

        Much like the baby books we are so meticulous about keeping, we each have a book that God is keeping and recording our victories. With every page, we see the growth and milestones of our babies. Our journey with accepting God as our leader, and Saviour is the same way. Looking back over the last seven years as a Jesus Follower, I can see the where He pulled me out of the pit in the beginning. Everything from a broken spirit, no self esteem, suicidal issues, mental health issues, cutting, addictions to drugs and alcohol. These pages mind you aren’t very pretty; but with the turn of a single page, I see the inscriptions Jesus made with every step I made towards Him. Each page brings me closer to being made in perfection, with peace, confidence, and freedom.
      Whether you’re a new person in Christ or you’ve been following Him for years, He has your “baby book” and is recording every milestone you make for Him and His kingdom. From every burden you let go of, to putting others before yourself. This verse is a good one to meditate on this week and teach to our kids, we can remind them in the moments they are frustrated from yet another timeout or correction, that we are confident in what God is creating in them, bringing them to the other side of perfection in Him.
