Make a sacrifice

cross-and-skyAny sacrifice must be in pursuit of something greater and have a foreseeable end point. If it doesn’t, it’s not sacrifice, it’s torture. ~ Simon Sinek

Work. What do you think about your career?

Sitting her on a Friday pondering the value of work. I highly recommend Work Matters as a resource and the blog about a biblical understanding of meaningful work in particular.  If you are interested. Or… just have a great Weekend.

Sustaining

The clouds, too, drink up their share,
raining it back down on the mountains from the upper reaches of Your home,
Sustaining the whole earth with what comes from You.
And the earth is satisfied.
Thus You grow grain for bread, grapes for wine, grass for cattle—
all of this for us.
And so we have bread to make our bodies strong,
wine to make our hearts happy,
oil to make our faces shine.
Every good thing we need, Your earth provides;
our faces grow flush with Your life in them.

(Psalm 104: 13-15 The Voice)

Finding Happiness Christ

happiness3The happiness promised us in Christ does not consist in outward advantages–such as leading a joyous and peaceful life, having rich possessions, being safe from all harm, and abounding with delights such as the flesh commonly longs after. No, our happiness belongs to the heavenly life! ~ John Calvin

Spiritual identity means we are not what we do or what people say about us.

And we are not what we have.

We are the beloved daughters and sons  of God.
