Just Work??

2010年下午2:19,Nicole Whitacre 归档下圣经中的女性身份

Today I was just going 18luck外围投注about my work: buying Gatorade (the red kind) and mixing jello (the green kind)stockxpertcom_id10117862_size1_2for my sick husband;试图让托丽吃她的豌豆和胡萝卜(然后清理掉她扔在地板上的豌豆和胡萝卜);训练杰克服从命令”马上,一路上,带着幸福的心”(和)"quietly""当我们在图书馆的时候,拜托!)写这篇文章。

Then Mom sent me this quote by Charles Bridges:

"It is most important habitually to contemplate our work in its proper character as a"信仰的工作。”As such,it can only be sustained by the active and persevering exercise of this principle.这就是为什么它是我们灵魂的恩典,以及一个伟大的媒介来提升我们的神圣主人。

It is faith that enlivens our work with perpetual cheerfulness.它把每一部分都奉献给上帝,在希望中,甚至为了他的荣耀,错误也将被推翻;从而使我们摆脱压抑的焦虑,often attendant upon a deep sense of our responsibility.求你每日赦免恩典的不足和供应,这就是求平安的捷径。without looking too eagerly for present fruit.""

Faith transforms my work.我可以原谅我对孩子们的不耐烦,I can have hope that my training efforts will not be in vain,I can wait patiently for the evidence that what I am doing for my family is doing some good after all,我可以以永恒的快乐而活跃。”"

Most of all,faith makes the laundry,the dishes,编辑,the diaper changing,祈祷,以及赐我灵魂恩典和尊崇我救主的关怀。

它不再只是工作了。It's a"信仰的工作。”"

他和你一起去

2010 at 9:22 pm   |   by Nicole Whitacre 归档下圣经中的女性身份γSpiritual Growth

对于很多读这个博客的人来说,,"回到学校“"是哪里are going in the next few weeks.Whether a private or public school,high school,学院或大学,你可能会发现自己被那些不相信或不爱救世主的人包围。

你可能会被诱惑去参加聚会(叛逆地放纵你的罪恶欲望,James 1:14-15),贬低你的信仰(把它藏在篮子里,Matt。5:14-16)to keep an open mind (question the only eternal truth,1 John 1:1-4),or to chase your dreams (pursue selfish ambitions,James 3:13-18) instead of running after God's commands.

As you consider these potential temptations,你可能会感到虚弱,无法站立,desperate for God's help.Good.如果是这样,愿耶和华对约书亚的话今日激励你们。"我没有命令过你吗?要坚强勇敢。Do not be frightened,and do not be dismayed,for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go"(约书亚1:9)

Friday Funnies

2010年8点51分,尼科尔·惠塔克 归档下Fun & EncouragementγFriday Funnies

这个星期我们把你留给一个和她年龄相仿的女人。Have a good one!妮可为吉尔塔克夫妇

A woman was sitting in the waiting room for her first appointment with a new dentist.She noticed his DDS diploma,上面写着他的全名。突然,她记得一个高个子,handsome,这么多年前,一个同名的黑头发男孩上过她的高中。这是我在回去的路上迷恋的那个人吗?她想知道。

She quickly discarded any such thought when she met the balding,满脸皱纹的灰发男子。他太老了,不能做我的同学,她自言自语。

仍然,他检查了她的牙齿之后,她问,"你上过摩根公园高中吗?""

"Yes!我是Mustang,"he gleamed with pride.

"When did you graduate?"她问。

"1959,"他回答说。"你为什么要问?""

"You were in my class!"她大声喊道。

"真的?"他说,仔细地看着她。"你教了什么?""

你梦想的房子

2010年下午2:38,卡罗琳·玛哈尼 归档下家政

stockxpertcom_id113858_size1_2 说到梦幻之家,do you (like me) find yourself desiring what you do not have??

You may be longing for the day when you can move away from your parents or get rid of your roommates in exchange for a husband and home.或者你不能等到你和你丈夫最终买得起房子而不是付房租。或者你可能讨厌被塞进一个大家庭的小房子里。你不会为一个更大的住所做什么!!

Do you (like me) find yourself tempted to be discontent with your home??

如果是这样,then this counsel author Randy Alcorn once gave a discontent couple is for you (and me) today:

"我当牧师的时候,一对夫妇来到我的办公室,告诉我他们想给教会和教会更多的钱。"But we've always had this dream for a beautiful home in the country,"they added,"我们似乎无法动摇它。错了吗?""
No it isn't.事实上,the dream of a perfect home is from God.只是这样一个梦想不能也不会在这一生中实现。我们的梦想之家即将来临;我们不必在这里建造它。事实上,we can't.(在永恒的光中,聚丙烯。155-156)

在地球上,我们可能永远不会拥有我们渴望的完美家园。但是“our dream house is coming!"它在天堂,在那里等我们,正如耶稣所承诺的那样:我父亲家里有许多房间。If it were not so,would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?"(John 14:2)

Dear Lord,may my mind and affections be set,不是在这个世界上,但在我永恒的天堂之家,总有一天我会和你在一起。这是我的终极梦想之家,不仅仅是一个梦想,it is a certain hope!感谢你儿子在十字架上的努力,把我带到你家,而且,有一天,会把我永远带进你的家!!

"流泪撒种的,必欢呼收割。出去哭泣的人,bearing the seed for sowing,将带着欢乐的呼喊回家,带着他的滑轮。”"诗篇126:5-6这篇诗篇教导了一个严酷的事实,即无论我是否在情感上为此而努力,都有工作要做。这对我来说是好事。假设你正处于心痛和沮丧的季节,and it is 新利18luckIM电竞牛time to sow seed.你说,今年春天我不能播种,因为我心碎而气馁?如果你这样做,冬天你不吃东西。假设你说的是,“我很伤心,很沮丧。如果早餐牛奶洒了我就哭。如果电话和门铃同时响,我会哭。新利18luckIM电竞牛我毫无理由的哭,但这片土地需要播种。生活就是这样。我不喜欢,but I will take my bag of seeds and go out in the fields and do my crying while I do my duty.我会含泪播种的。这诗篇的应许,是说你要欢呼收割,你要欢呼回家。带着你的滑轮,' not because the tears of sowing produce the joy of reaping,but because the sheer sowing produces the reaping.即使我们的眼泪诱使我们放弃播种,我们也要记住这一点。”"神性生活,聚丙烯。89—90

So what fields in your life need to be sowed today?即使你在履行职责的时候哭泣,你会,one day reap with joy.-来自档案馆
