In our most recent sermon at church we were reminded that as believers we have one response to the King of Kings when He asks us to do something: “Yes, Your majesty.” It is with that admonition, that we continue to press on in the grace, mercy and strength of the Lord. He has asked us to do a task that is not possible in our own human strength. So we move from self-reliance to God reliance….which was another part of the sermon from Sunday. As I was reading Ella Bible stories today, Jonah, Daniel, Baby Moses, it struck me that each one had that same theme…..tasks only possible in God’s power and strength. Even Mary carrying the Lord…….Jesus in her womb…..most likely not her idea of how her first step of motherhood would be. We must remove the veil of a selfish gospel. It is not about our Kingdom come, it is about His kingdom come…..on earth as it is in heaven. Praying that God would be glorified in our lives. Pictures from our spring break!
This may be the last post for a bit as we have a very busy season coming with 7 children in soccer on four different teams, Kaiti graduating and a busy season for Ron at school. We are making progress each day. Thank you for your prayers.
We had a great spring break with hope for the future, and hope is a very good thing.
