Serving God





"You are as much serving God in looking after your own children,

training them up in God's fear,

minding the house,

and making your household a church for God,

as you would be if you had been called to lead an army

to battle for the Lord of Hosts." 


 - Charles Spurgeon

  2. Our jobs are quite important, yet we don't seem to realize it. Before I used to think that it was the world that kept us from finding contentment in it, but I am coming to the realization,that it is ourselves that keep contentment away from the sacred of the Everyday!

    Thank you for sharing Lisa,

  3. A VERY encouraging word for today, thank you. Also thank you for your encouraging words about the video. I almost didn't put it out there b/c I was afraid of the backlash. But the Lord convicted me to put it out and hopefully it will get others thinking of why they are doing what they do. Not to do things b/c they and their family has always done it. It is a very powerful video indeed!

    Blessings and ((HUGS))

    PS: I will be sharing very soon how and what our family does celebrate. We celebrate Hanukkah in a Messianic way. Jesus is the TRUE light of the world, PTL!
