A prayer for Ryland

Today was my baby’s first soccer game! He’s such a baby to me. His voice is so small…I grab every smooch from his cute face I can get in a day!!!

Today as I watched him a little reservedly join his team I got to see a glimpse of the way (you know, train up a child in the way they should go…) Ryland was designed by God to go. My little guy’s a leader. He put his reservations behind him, marched out there to join his team of under sixers (who are all 5-6…he’s the only 3 year old!) and said real loud, “NOBODY TOUCH THE BALL WITH YOUR HANDS!!!” Then he realized everybody was looking at him and he shrugged his shoulders and stuck his hands up in the air as though he were saying, “I don’t know!”

I pray Ryland would know God has not given him a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind. I pray he would not shrink back from speaking the truth in love and being an example in faith and in life as he follows Jesus even if he is the youngest person in the bunch!










Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the

believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

-1Timothy 4:12
