Word for Your Life

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. ~ Psalm 127:1

A Year with Aslan from The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Have you ever met someone & hit it off right away?

As Lucy is on the ship, she’s watching a school of fish swim around, when suddenly she sees a little Sea Girl, about her age, right in the middle of them. Just when she thought she’d lose her, the girl looked up .. & it says ..

Lucy will never forget her face.  It didn’t look frightened or angry.  In that one moment they had somehow become friends.  & while it doesn’t seem there’s much chance of their meeting again, if they do – they’ll rush together with their hands held out.

What a beautiful picture of what heaven must be like.  You & others you’ve met, if only thru prayer, with eternity to get to know each other.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!  1 Corinthians 4:12 says:

We work hard with our own hands.  When we’re cursed, we bless.

Isn’t that perfect to celebrate Labor Day? If we want to live our faith out before others, we’re going to run into people that will criticize & make fun of us.  How we respond may or may not have an impact on them – but it wil definitely have a profound impact on us. 

Continue to work with diligence, & when you’re treated badly – do something good for them.


Donald Miller ~ Blue Like Jazz

When we worship God, we worship a Being our life experience does not give us the tools to understand.  If we could, God would not inspire awe.


What the caterpillar calls the end, God calls a butterfly.

Oswald Chambers ~ My Utmost for His Highest

Our Lord must be repeatedly astounded at how un-simple we are. It is our own opinions that make us stupid. The mystery of God is not in what is going to be, it is now; we look for it in some cataclysmic event. When Philip said “Show us the Father” he expected the revelation of a tremendous mystery, not the One Whom he knew.  God never guides presently, but always now.

Phillip Yancey ~ What’s So Amazing About Grace?

Christians may choose to enter an arena of power, but when we do we dare not leave love behind.  The largest & deepest reference of the Gospel is not to the world or its social problems, but to Eternity & its social obligations.

Pastor Ralph Hefner: Following surgery that left him blind

You never realize God is all you need until you wake up one morning & he’s all you have.

Talking Bedtime Prayers

This morning we shared bedtime rituals, either from our childhood or our children’s.  Shannyn found this prayer on Pinterest.

Prayer Rock

A lot of folks shared variations of the classic prayer “Now I lay me down to sleep..”  Here’s the original, & for more just click here.

Matthew, Mark, Luke and John ..
Bless the bed that I lie on.
There are four corners to my bed..
Four angels ’round my head:
One to watch, and one to pray,
And two to bear my soul away.
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
