I have some exciting news! My passion for Joshua’s House is growing again! I can’t wait to be able to really delve into things. It’s hard because now with remodeling the house, teaching, leading Sabbath School, and being a wife I only have about 10 hours a week available to work on Joshua’s house. But God knows that, and whatever I have is enough for Him.
You are probably wondering what made the change, what pulled me out of the slump. Two things really. First of all, sharing. You know that’s how things are. The more we share with others about things that are exciting to us, the more excited we get. That’s why it’s so important for us to continually share with others what God is doing in our lives. May our lips never quiet.
I will extol the LORD at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips. My soul will boast in the LORD;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the LORD with me;
let us exalt his name together.
~ Psalm 34:1-3
The second thing is remembering who I am and what God has called me to. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, I am a missionary for God right here. Often the going gets tough, and because I live in comfortable suburbia, it’s easy to forget my calling. Yet God never fails to call me back. So here I am. I am ready to serve God however He calls me to serve. I’m ready to give Him my all, be it through Joshua’s House, my contact with people at the grocery store, serving my husband, or anything in-between.
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
~ Colossi ans 3:1-4
