back to work

This summer has been long, tiring and HOT!

The end of July I was in Ecuador for 10 days. And then I came back to Fairdale for about 2 weeks. And then we went on a family vacation. And now I am back to work this week.

I am excited to be back to work. I am excited that the weather is already cooling off. I am excited that school has started back and that means football is beginning too. And I am excited to think about working diligently, steadily, and consistently for the church from now until the Christmas season holidays.

While I am back at work, putting my hand to the plow, and trying to catch up, all of these great verses concerning work are in my head and heart.

Colossians 3:23

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men”

Acts 20:35

“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus…”

1 Corinthians 15:10

“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.”

Ephesians 4:12

“to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ”
