Day 9: Completed Work
Lord, may these children know that You, who began a good work in them, will bring it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
How many times have I prayed this prayer for my children? Countless. I have prayed this with great joy at times, and with desperation at other times. He began the work when He created them. He continued the work when I taught them about Jesus and His love. The first time they sang, “Jesus loves me, this I know…” it was part of the good work He is performing in them. And it is He who will bring it to completion.
On that last day, they will stand complete in Him, and I will marvel at the good work. Even on bad days, days filled with doubt, I will choose to remember—and believe that He is true to His word and His good work.
