One of my favorite bible verses is :
Romans 8:28 All things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose.
I love it because it has helped to embrace all that God allows- the good and (seemingly bad) in my life as a part of His will for me.
1 Thes 5:18 In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you- is also illustrative of this fact.
This morning I just want to share what the Lord gave me to put on on my son Andrews poster tribute. He has the male lead in the school musical this year and the chorus teacher asked the parents to make a poster or write a tribute to our children to be posted on the walls outside the auditorium for the musical. Andrews first musical was 2 years ago and I'm not sure I even had it together enough to get anything more than some pictures up . But last year I did and I prayed about what to write. This year I did too, because I feel so strongly that if God isn't somehow glorified in it then it is meaningless. So I'm sharing what He gave to me as a tribute to my son.
- WE HAVE THIS TREASURE IN EARTHEN VESSELS THAT THE EXCELLENCY OF THE POWER MAY BE OF GOD. I am the wife Of Don and mother of two boys and a stay at home mom. My goal is to follow Jesus in all aspects of life but starting first and foremost in my own home.Titus 2:3-5 I stumble often and get discouraged, but am amazed as I go to my Lord in faith that he looks upon me with compassion, forgiveness and love each and every time. His love for me seems to increase as I keep going back to His throne of grace!! Of course I know His love never changes, but my ability to see His love increases each time He picks me up, dusts me off and says "keep on going Ruth.... I love you!" And because of His great love, I am falling more and more in love with Him each and every day.
