An Awesome Poem
Ravi Zacherias quoted this poem in his series on Nehemiah. The imagery is so pure and powerful…
Wasilla Bible Church
During our travels, we have attended some pretty great churches. In Illinois, we found a home at Community Bible Church. The preaching was great and the worship was spectacular. There is something pretty amazing when you witness the Lord using godly men to share His word through song. Our new church home is Wasilla Bible Church. The leadership is excellent. The sermons are full of meat and the worship at Wasilla Bible Church nothing short of wonderful.
Here is just one of the songs that the worship leader Joel Stamoolis wrote: Ballad of the Seven Signs
The current sermon series from 1st Peter is also worth checking out. Just click on Wasilla Bible Church’s logo below to get their website. Enjoy!
Being a mom of seven, I try each day to make the most of the time I have. Multi-tasking is my middle name. But, there is one time of the day that cannot be multi-tasked, and that is my quiet time. A few years ago I tried to “share” this time with my then five children. I thought it would be good for them to “see how it is done.” And, though that goal was achieved, I lost perspective on what a quiet time was all about…being quiet before the Lord. It wasn’t until I was sharing how I spend my homeschool day with a friend that I realized what I had given up. She rightly admonished me to re-establish my morning quiet time/bible study; and encouraged me to read Secrets of the Secret Place by Bob Sorge.
But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door; pray to your Father who is in the secret place. (Matthew 6:6)
These days, I cherish the quiet time I share with the Lord each morning AND the afternoon bible study I do with our children. For the past two years we have listened to Daily Audio Bible. How awesome it is to read through the Bible with your children and have the accountability that is innate to DAB.
Help me remember Lord, that
And not only remember it, but live it.
