Let Your Guard Down...

Hmmm let me see...Let my guard down? Sure why not - after all it is a movie recommended by someone trustworthy right?

These words have been ringing in my head all week long as we foolishly followed them...and went against everything we have cultivated in our family...and everything that God puts in His word... We borrowed a movie on the good word of a very trustworthy young man.

So we put it in and I was busy cooking and heard a few remarks...than a few more...then my husband turned it off....we viewed it together and were shocked at what was in the movie! Many, many "not so funny" comments and other things that maybe a young man might over look and not "get" but Satan certainly "gets" it....after all his goal is roaming around seeking out whom he may destroy and devour! I was so glad that my husband turned it off...it may have encouraged our sons to head down a very dark and lonely path...and might have left our lovely daughter wondering if she was really "lovely".

God's word commands us to be on our guard against ungodly things, to think about things that are pure, to(as moms) be the keepers of our home...and the list goes on! My husband and I stand convicted and will keep our guard up...even when it comes from a delightful young man who may not have seen what we saw or heard what we heard in the movie....

I want to challenge each of you, the keepers of the home, to be on your guard...seeking the word and asking the Lord for guidance and direction! Keep your home in line with what God's word says - it is so important!

Just out of curiosity, (forgive the spelling) what was the movie called?

We had something like that happen when we got the Muppet Wizard of Oz from the library. We hyped it to the children, got them in PJS and popped popcorn and were horrified. We couldn't believe it. Who would have thought that you had to check out a Muppet movie before you watched it. Never again. We check everything before we set it before our children.

The older boys made us so proud last spring. We were at a family retreat and Rich and I were at a couples' dinner while the children were eating dinner in childcare. They put on a movie and our older boys asked if they could take their siblings and play elsewhere, because their parents had not seen the movie and said it was okay for them to watch. We were amazed and proud of them.

That our sons may be as plants
and our daughters may be pillars sculptured in palace style.
