“Don’t calculate the size of your dreams by the circumstances and atmosphere you are in.” Teaching our children to pursue their dreams in spite of the obstacles is not an easy task. It is essential that they dream past the storms, push past the walls, climb over the obstacles. God’s plan over our children’s life is not dependent on how ideal we can line up the circumstances for HIM. God will not be deterred by crisis such as illness, divorce, poverty, rejection, nor abuse. As a matter of fact it is chaotic circumstances where God shows up and activates us into HIS plan. Moses was born in a slave camp with a death order over him. His parents were slaves and didn’t know any other way of life. Every male birthed in his time was murdered. Yet, Moses lived. God had whispered into the ear of woman to hide the child. God fulfilled the promise over Moses’ life. He was educated in the best schools on the planet at the expense of Pharaoh, he wrote the first five books of the bible and later liberated an entire nation. God will fulfill his plans over the lives of our children no matter how dark and chaotic it may appear to be today. When they ask “How will I know this is God’s plan or mine?”, remember this~~~ If you can measure it, calculate it, fund it, and map it… then it’s you. If it’s unobtainable, beyond your resources, and no one around you has done it, then it is GOD!! Keep believing, remind our children that HE holds them in the palm of HIS hands. Keep pushing, the promises will come to be!

My name is Osen. At this season in my life, I am raising two handsome young men and a beautiful daughter. I currently teach . You will find me jogging on my free time or buried in a pile of books, if my energy isn't zapped too early in the evening. The inspiration for my blog was birthed on the pavement ( I am a jogger) where God speaks so loud and clear to my spirit. At a very young age, I was aware that the enemy had an agenda against me and my generations. I rose up in God's grace and strength to push back and climb the destiny assigned from above. I hope to share some insights on raising children with a purpose, setting them in motion to achieve their God given purpose, and to encourage one another to pursue our own dreams. Let's raise up an army of women who takes down the kingdom of darkness and focuses on establishing God's plan in our homes. View all posts by Osen de Leon
