monday morn.





simply this . . .

while we as women devote much time to the here and now, fluffing our nests, preparing nourishing meals, loving on our families and friends ........... is not enough time devoted to laying up treasures in heaven with a view toward eternity? or is there an overlapping of devotions - right and true - where your walk with Christ merges and becomes one with your day to day life, where you cannot distinguish one from the other..? 

would love to learn your thoughts 
on this thought i thought this day.

"i pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you." ~ephesians 1.18

with love this monday morn,

  1. I do think that they do merge - they should be indistinguishable. He is our life, and as we walk with Him daily, that flows into and out of our daily work, be it home keeping, raising kids, working.

    Love you, dearest girl.

    Happy New Year!

    at the foot of the cross .. in surrender. if truth be told.

  4. So many good thoughts to think when thinking on these thoughts!! :-) I recall many scriptures that tell us about *walking* Walking in the Spirit, wlaking circumspectly, walk worthy of the Lord, and on and on. ALso, scriptures that tell us to put on and put off. Now, we also know from scripture that these things do not save us, but are a result of our faith in Christ and the endwelling of the Holy Spitit. For that is the ONLY way we can walk out these things!! :-) And we also read where Paul (who wrote a whole lot of the New Testament scriptures) struggled himself as an appostle. Romans 7 (glory what an amazing book!!!) That he saw warring in his members...Oh wretched man that i am!!! So in my heart and mind i am understanding that there is a sanctification process that the Lord by His Spirit and His Word grows us thru. We have the Spirit to make it happen, we have the flesh warring against that Spirit. Oh ! Before i forget There is therefore now no condemnation in Christ!! Must keep that on our hearts. Our Father loved us and saved us!!!! We will never be perfect till heaven. But, it says sin has no dominion over us (although i certainly *feel* like it does at times!!!), i have heard this taught as we are no longer slaves to it. And, the Bible says this. But the struggle is VERY real!!! And in it He (precious Father that He is) conforms us more and more to the image of His Son!! For His glory too!!! SO wow i am chatterin on (afternoon coffee!!), and so now i just reread the post and it was not really about what all i just went into!!! Ha!!! Ok, In all we do ,do it for the glory of God!!! I think maybe that speaks to the post more than all my many ramblings!! Sorry!!! Love and big ole hugs Sherry!!!!~tammy

  5. Thank you Sherry, for your post today. As I was running late this morning on my way to work, I quickly grabbed my guide book (The Secret Place) out of my bible and said to myself, "I can bring up my daily bible verse on the computer." Once at work, I got busy with "work", and such...and so, thank you for reminding me to read my daily words. :) God Bless. Matthew 2 1-12.

  6. Beautiful post, Sherry. For years I struggled in dividing "heavenly" and "earthly" -- sigh! Our pastor is constantly saying that if we're living Gospel-driven lives it changes everything. All of life is put on display for His glory. When we love our family well, He is glorified, and so on. We never know who is watching or listening! Thank you for sharing this glorious thought to ponder. Blessings!

  7. Well said. My new year post expresses this, too, somewhat. Devotion in the midst of daily tasks -- overlapping. . .good word. xo
