Re: Anyone else leave their childbearing up to God?

Supejed05- what a beautiful post and very encouraging. So very true. I come across so many in later life-that just"wish" they would have had more children. They wish they had never sucuumbed to that mythical "not enough money" and pressures from family.

If we are honest, and decide to live by the world's standards, then most people do not have enough money for even one child! The world says we are not good parents unless our child has the latest electronics, toys, brand new car when 16, full college tuition paid and then even support into adulthood! No wonder our generation of adults and kids coming up are so dependent. They have never had to hear, no, never had to work for anything, never had to rely on the Lord to provide. I choose to live in the the Kingdom of God. So I feel no pressure to conform to the world's standards. It is the most freeing choice I have ever made.
