I had this verse ready to go but just had a feeling in me to wait before posting.
Work is work and work is indeed tough. 24 hours a day just doesn’t seem like it’s enough time. We all get rushed and in return we get cranky.
I am being led to say that there is someone out there that needs to read this verse. Anything you do, do it for God and his glory. We cannot fathom the greatness and intellectual of our God. Do your work to honor him…who knows what God will use you for.
Jesus died and rose again so that we may live.
How should a Christian act? How should a Christian feel about a certain topic? How should a person of God feel about cultural events? How should WE feel when our enemies are plotting against us? The answer is love. It’s always been about love.
31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. 32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. (Ephesians 4:31-32 NLT)
With the whole move and all its safe to safe that life has been pretty stressful. I prayed often and spoke to our Lord on a daily basis. Even in the times when i felt that our conversations were a one way street, I knew our God was listening. Its similar to when my kids try to tell me about their problems. I always nod in agreement often and we reach the point where I am completely silent while my kids of on and on.
As i look back the one thing i didn’t do so much was read the Bible. There is no denying that earthly challenges can feel like the weight of the world is o your shoulders. There is something to be said that no matter what we should always take the time to seek and listen to God’s words.
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
May the Lord bless you, keep you, and give you the courage not to be an undercover Christian.
Its been awhile since i last wrote here and i must say it feels a little weird. Anyways, Im sure i will get in the hang of things again as i keep hammering way on the keypad.
I received a few emails asking why the sudden lack of entries on the site. The answer is pretty simple. The family and I have spent the last two months moving from one side of the world to another. A move that involved boxes and cars being shipped by boat (we are still waiting for the boxes), remodeling the house so it will be comfortable for the family, and finding furniture and household goods for the house. Add to that the stress of back to school and getting acclimated to a new job, I simply did not have enough hours in a day.
By the grace of God, things have calmed down and our new life is beginning to have a routine. Granted we dont have furniture yet…but we are here, we are happy, and we are still standing.
Anyways, here’s to more frequent posts about the good news that comes expressing your Christian faith! In the meanwhile why don’t you revisit some of my favorite posts like…
