Because You Serve the Lord... Today Is Your Best Day (Part 1)

So my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.  1 Corinthians 15:58 NLT

God has given you the grace to know Him, the strength to obey Him, and the opportunity to serve Him in all you do today. There are certain things that are important for your heart to affirm as you continue your daily walk with Jesus. Here are three areas that are vital to your faith, your obedience, and your personal growth.

You have an enemy that you must resist. Satan does not like the fact that you have committed your life to Jesus Christ and that you are serving Him. He will oppose you, accuse you, and lie to you. He will try to tear you down and pull you down. He will use all his wiles to move your eyes away from Jesus, or have your feet wander off the path that God has called you to follow. This is not a battle for you to win, but a battle that Jesus has already won. Stand fast in the victory that you have in Jesus Christ, and resist everything that is against God's will for you today.


You have a call that is certain. As you continue to walk in obedience to God and follow His heart today, you can affrim that you are doing what you're doing because God has called you to the place you're in. It's not your idea that placed you where you are, but God's. You are in God's place, in God's time. He hasn't made a mistake. You are where you are and doing what you are doing because it is part of God's plan and purpose for your life. You may be in a busy place or a quiet place, but the important thing is that it is God's place for you.

You have a God who will not fail. God has called you to trust in Him, to live in Him, and to follow Him. He hasn't called you to trust in your efforts but to trust in His grace; He hasn't called you to look to your resources, but to receive His supply; He hasn't called you to struggle and strive, but to abide in His rest; He hasn't called you to lean upon your own understanding, but to depend upon His wisdom; He hasn't called you to be clever or talented, but to believe in His favor and blessing upon your life.

Everything that comes from God will succeed in fulfilling His perfect plan for your life. All that Jesus does in you and through you will make this your best day.

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai
