Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

1Corinthians 9
Verse 25-26a All athletes practice strict self-control. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. 26 So I run straight to the goal with purpose in every step.

We should have this goal in mind in everything we do. But what is the goal? When we become a Christian God gives us the precious reward of eternal life. But we do not receive it immediately, we have to remain on earth until we die and go to heaven or until Christ returns. So while we are still on earth our goal is to please God.

Steps to pleasing God include prayer, Bible study, worship and using our spiritual gift. These can all be done individually, small groups of 2 or more, or within a Church.

Dear Lord, the more I get into your Word the more I am amazed at how you can lead me down a path. Just today the Word has been intertwined through my group Bible Study, Worship service and this evening's study. The discovery of true spiritual gifts has been pressing on my heart, please help me to open my heart to hear where you are taking me on this path.
