Has your relationship with God changed the way you live your life?

Do you know that nothing you do in this life will ever matter, unless it is about loving God and loving the people he has made?

God's definition of what matters is pretty straightforward. He measures our lives by how we love. -Francis Chan @crazylove

A simple life that revolves around loving God and your family doesn’t equate to a small life.
Mother Teresa said:
-“If you want to bring happiness to the whole world, go home and love your family.”
-“Whatever you do for your family, your children, your husband, your wife, you do for God.  All we do, our prayers, our work, our suffering, is for Jesus.”
-“It is easy to love the people far away.  It is not always easy to love those close to us.  Bring love into your home, for this is where our love for each other must start.”
-“Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do…but how much love we put in that action.”
-“The child is the beauty of God present in the world, that greatest gift to a family.”
-“The way you help heal the world is that you start with your own family.”
-“Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.”
-“The family that prays together, stays together, and if they stay together they will love one another as God has loved each one of them.  And works of love are always works of peace.”
-“Never worry about numbers.  Help one at a time, and always start with those nearest you.”
A life lived with a faithfulness and commitment to the small, important things we tend to overlook. In the quest to do something grand with our lives we somehow miss the fact that the small things are ultimately the biggest things.
“Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going – to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering” (Romans 12:1–2) MSG
Because every moment in what some might consider a small life was a moment painted with great love.
The impact will never be forgotten.
We all have bits and pieces of the things that belonged to those who’ve taken time to love us well.—�And more than that, we have the lessons they taught us, the memories they gave us, the stories they told, and the way they loved day in and day out.
These are the things that are handed on to us and the things we are handing on, even when we may not be paying attention.
When you have lived life to the fullest, when you haven’t wasted one single moment of who and what God has created you to be, you leave a mark on the people around you-

Looking NORMAL, sometimes we just look like normal people and that's okay! My daughter snapped this of me as we were Bible Journaling. I thought she was picking the next worship song. So here I am, teaching my kids scripture... looking normal. ❤️⠀

#Amen....Happy Sabbath Israel! (Blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans)...The SABBATH DAY is A COMMANDMENT!!! (The 4th)...*Exodus 20:8 “REMEMBER The SABBATH DAY (Saturday Not Sunday) To Keep it HOLY.” (Set Apart)...*Exodus 31:12-13, 16,17 “12. And The LORD SPAKE Unto MOSES, Saying, 13. Speak Thou Also Unto The CHILDREN of ISRAEL, Saying, Verily MY SABBATHS (Saturday) Ye Shall KEEP: (Do) For it is a SIGN Between ME and You Throughout YOUR GENERATIONS; that Ye May Know that I AM the LORD that DOTH SANCTIFY YOU. 16. Wherefore The CHILDREN Of ISRAEL Shall KEEP The SABBATH, (Saturday) to OBSERVE The SABBATH THROUGHOUT Their GENERATION, For A PERPETUAL (Continual) COVENANT. 17.

Okay friends, I’m about to talk crazy...

Tomorrow I plan on GIVING UP ALL SOCIAL MEDIA for ONE DAY as a Sunday day of rest! (As inspired by @diane_boden from @minimalistmomspodcast).

I know, I know.... sounds easy right? Sounds like I’m making a big deal out of nothing- right?

And maybe I am. But it’s going to be difficult for me! I know I’ll “feel the twitch” to get on my phone 100 times tomorrow, and then I’ll have to put my phone back down and walk away!

And it’s going to be so good for me and my family!

I’m posting this for two reasons: 1. Accountability!, and 2. I would LOVE for you to join me!

So who’s in? One day, starting at midnight tonight, no social media, and we see each other back here on Monday. Yay! 🎉

Me: “Why in the world are you being so loud, I am asleep!” Scott: “I’m having chest pains...” Wife of the year award... This was our very real conversation yesterday early in the morning. My eyes snapped wide open and I was dressed and out the door faster than I exactly know how.
Is it atrial fibrillation again, heart failure again? No, it can’t be, his heart rhythm seems normal. Blood pressure-high...too high. We worship together the whole ride to the ER, and tears stream down my cheeks as I praise the God who gives and takes away. I know it could be His plan. Even if we did pinky promise to live to be 100 so we could live 80+ years in the covenant of marriage.

Is it heart failure again? My mind keeps flipping between the physical in front of me with the love of my life, and the spiritual, to Jesus the love of my soul. The hot, hate filled, angry words of someone blaze through my mind....that heart failure was something Scott had deserved, we all deserved, because we had failed them.
We keep worshiping, “it is well, with my soul”, “I want you to live forever, underneath the sky so blue”, “I will sing like a man with no sickness in my body”. We are pro’s now at registration for the hospital, we could place EKG tabs ourselves if we needed to. We wait. We laugh and know that whatever this is, He has us. We trust it soul deep, He will catch us.
Doctor: “You were right to come in, given your history. I am happy to say it’s musculoskeletal, your heart is in pristine condition.” Back and forth from the physical to the spiritual my mind flip flops. This man of mine has the best heart I know. His heart has struggled and failed, it’s literally been through fire and burned to be restored.
His heart is in pristine condition:

Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:25-26

If your perspective is that you can always find God in the suffering, the joy, the sadness, the rejoicing, the struggles. That’s where He lives, ready to catch you in a blanket of grace and mercy.
