Well, as you read this I am on my two week blogging break. I am looking forward to a little breather. However, I will probably be scribbling ideas down in my notebook anyhow. But you, my sweet reader, are in for treat while I step away for a bit. Several wonderful bloggers are guest posting during my break. They cover topics from motherhood to marriage to faith building and more. I’m so excited to share with you some fabulous bloggers and invite you to stop by every day and be encouraged.

Also, two more days and the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle will be available. Most of you know I am a total advocate for being healthy and this bundle will be filled with much information and encouragement about being and living healthy. Come by Wednesday and pick up one for yourself. However, you can get your bundle FREE if you get enough referrals. Read more about that HERE! There will be ebooks covering natural health and wellness and much more. There is also bonus offers worth $200!! It’s over $1000 worth of healthy living information for $29.97!!!

Monday’s Musings #128 & Work Heartily

 workheartily

Today is Labor Day. It’s the day we recognize “the achievements of the American workers” according the Department of Labor. Yet do we really appreciate the idea of work? Some would rather not work and some really do enjoy what they do for a living. However you look at it, work is ordained by God.

In Genesis 1, we see God model this for us. He created the world and all its contents. For six days he designed and brought to life the earth we stand on including the firmament and the waters. And since we are created in His image, we should have the same heart about work as He did. In Genesis 2:15, it says, “The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.”  From the beginning, he designed us to work.

Work does have purpose. The main one being to provide means for a living. Since little is free, money must be made to provide for our basic needs: food, home, clothes, etc. Working hard also gives us a sense of accomplishment of doing a job well. “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.” (Proverbs 13:4) Plus, we are called to work unto the Lord. “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.” (Colossians 3:23)

Whether our work generates a paycheck or not, all work it is to be done with joy, diligence and in service to the Lord. “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:13) Moms even we are called to the same obedience. We may not get a paycheck but our duties are still work before the eyes of God. “In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty.” (Proverbs 14:23) Our profit is not in cash but in the satisfaction of taking care of what God has put under our care: our family, marriage, home, etc.

Today let’s remind ourselves that work is a part of how we were created in His image. It is a good component of our being. And work well done unto the glory of God will be a blessing to us. “You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.” (Psalm 128:2)

Now onto our party! Just a note to those of you guest posting for me in a week, I am working to get it all up and will be emailing you this week with your post date. If you haven’t heard from me, don’t fret. I am making my way through each post as time allows. Thank you again for doing it. I’m excited to share each one of you here at WJIM.

Monday’s Musings #127

peaceprayer

Trusting God’s sovereignty in all things is not always easy. Sometimes we want to run ahead and follow through with our own idea of how everything should go. But there are those times we cannot do that and we find ourselves living out His merciful design. We can choose to be at peace with that scenario and stand firm with belief that God will do what is best or fight it making it most difficult to live through. Elisabeth’s prayer is perfect for when we find ourselves needing to trust the Lord and his sovereign plan.

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” (Isaiah 26:3)

My post is short today because life is in full swing this week. I will be quite busy so I’m preparing my heart and mind for all I have on my agenda. By God’s grace, it will all go as planned. Just a reminder that we are selling some of our homeschool curricula. You can start HERE. Now onto the link up!

Thank you to all who linked up last week. I was able to read and share some on social media. I look forward to what I will read this week.
