We always want to help you find a way to get in the Word whatever way you can, and phone and tablet apps are such an easy way to do that! As busy parents we are always on crunch time, but carving out time for Bible Study is so important! It is spending time in the life giving Word of God that makes everything else worth while! Take a few moments to read through the list of apps we have put together that will help you dive into the Bible some extra minutes and hours this week.
This man, while in the midst of what may be the deepest sorrow earthside - the loss of a child, and for him, multiple children - yet he regarded His salvation and His Savior as greater than any earthly loss, or any earthly turmoil he would face. What a testament to the strength and peace that can be found in our Lord Jesus! What a comfort He is in times of sorrow and unrest! Horatio Spafford chose the path of peace through our Savior and chose to praise Him continually regardless of circumstances. It is evident that he was focused on the life beyond this one, and the magnitude of what Christ did for us on the cross, rather than the presence of sorrow.
It's true, mamas make the world go 'round! Take a little time to send the mom in your life a sweet present - we know she'll love it! Even better, give her a great big hug and tell her just how much she means to you and just how special she is.
Proverbs 31:28–29: "Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 'Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.'"
One of my favorite things about being at home so much lately has been the time spent enjoying our yard and all of the new things that are coming up in Springtime. This is our first Spring in our new home and it has been so fun seeing all of the new growth come up! We go on walks and see what is new each day and what has grown and changed. It’s such a great time to reflect on God’s beautiful creation and remember the way that He created the earth to be – GOOD. It helps us to slow down and remember the goodness of God. There are so many bible verses about nature and creation. Take some time to read over the list of our favorites as you enjoy His creation this season!
I’ll admit, Good Friday has not always been my favorite day to observe or celebrate. We take time to remember the way that Christ died on the cross and the pain that He endured that day. But I believe the Lord would have us view this day in light of the complete work that He did. After all, it was His choice to hang there that day, He gave himself willingly, and all for us! In the light of Easter Sunday morning and a risen Savior, Good Friday is good! It is a beautiful remembrance of the love that was shown for us that day! We’ve put together some of our favorite verses and Good Friday quotes to reflect on as we remember the sacrifice that Jesus gave on Good Friday.
