WATER!

We had for King & Country on with us today, if you missed, you can listen here.

Well, so far we've saved $42 by only drinking water! Keep in mind, $1 provides clean water for a year for 1 person in Uganda. Incredible! Make water your only beverage for 40 days. Keep track and save the money you would have spent, and that money will support local water projects in Uganda! Blood:Water Mission

Your Enthusiasm Is No Mistake

That thing that you do that you are enthusiastic about, that activity that gives you life…dancing, playing with your kids, working, creating, building; what ever you are enthusiastic about, could it be that it’s an inspiration or gift from God?

Enthusiasm---ultimately comes from a Greek word that means "having the god within," formed from en, "in, within," and theos, "god." Over time the meaning of enthusiasm became extended to "rapturous inspiration like that caused by a god" to "an overly confident belief that one is inspired by God”.

Colossians 3:23  “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.”  Do it with such enthusiasm that when people see it they will be seeing God doing it through you!

Children and Tragedy

Talking to Children after a tragedy:

One day after the tragedy at an Ohio school, we wanted to provide a tool for parents to talk to their children about tragic events. Click HERE for a link to the article.

Here are a few pointers:

• Talk to your kids about it before they hear it from friends or counselors or teachers.
• Stick to the facts. You don’t need to elaborate and needlessly frighten them.
• Only talk about this with kids age 6 and older.
• Every child will respond differently. Some might be sad, some scared, some stoic. Some might not react right away and come to you a day or so later with a strong reaction. Let them know that however they feel, it’s O.K., it’s natural. You can also let them know you are sad, too.
• Let them know they’re safe and that you are there for them.

 

Regardless of what happens in life remember this from Spurgeon.

"God is the keeper of your soul. Your soul is kept from the dominion of sin, the infection of error, the crush of despondency, the puffing up of pride; kept from the world, the flesh, and the devil; kept for holier and greater things; kept in the love of God.  What can harm a soul that is kept of the Lord?"
