Genesis 2:15 (NIV)

15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

Reading the above text, it struck me that God is highly in favor of work!  Not only is He in favor of it, He put Adam in the garden to “work and take care” of it.  In other words God told Adam to “Get to work!”

This holiday break has been an absolute blessing but it is over and now and time to go back to work.  Time to be about completing and undertaking tasks purposed by God for me.  These periods of respite away from the daily grind have a way of providing more than just physical and emotional rest.  Ok, so maybe I did a bit more knitting than actual resting, but those long uninterrupted periods of knitting provided quiet moments of reflection and contemplation.

Rested, ready, reliable and responsive,  let us go into the next phase of our tasks, whatever work we do, give glory to God while working!  Be grateful to be employed and understand that God employs us to be emissaries on behalf of the Kingdom!  Now, it is time to get back to work!  

Making His praise glorious!

He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters. Psalms 23:2

The last week has been filled with incredibly emotional ups and downs. The peaks and valleys from one moment to the next have been exhausting. Yet, through these times God has truly led and provided still waters. He has sent angels to minister to us by bringing food, spending time and offering to open their homes so that we could recharge close to the hospital. He placed others around for whom we were able to pray, comfort and encourage.

Because of His love we have been blessed and able to be a blessing to others. The road is long but we, as a family, know Jesus and that God designed the map!

Making His praise glorious!

Going Outside

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)

I must confess, lately I have limited my travel comfort zone since landing in Texas on Sunday night. While I did go to Walmart, more than once, a trip requiring freeway or further travel wasn’t happening. There was a self-attatched tether holding me close to the hospital. It was important to stay close, just in case my rudamentary first aid skills were needed. You know, in case God needed my assistance.

Newsflash, as I repeatedly professed that God is in charge my wobbly, little girl emotions alternated between fear and faith. It is critical that I stay plugged into the source of life and healing. So I accepted an angel’s kind offer of a shower and recharge on a soft sofa. Those brief hours renewed within me the knowledge that in all things, at all times God is taking care of us.

Making His praise glorious!
