Joshua 3:5

Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you.”

I have been pondering this verse this week.  It's very applicable in every area of my life.  It's a hard road- a road of intentional consecrating.  Of purposeful diligence.  It may seem like redundant words- but, if you've lived in a season of daily intentional choices...well, you know it's hard. And, lonely.  And, often dry and dark.  And, usually with a handful of misunderstandings.  Many want the Lord to do amazing things...but they don't want to consecrate themselves.  And, my experience has shown that they don't usually want to be around those that do.

We don't always get a literal "tomorrow"...but, the promise of the Lord doing amazing things among us is worth it all!

More than a clean house, clean children, clean self (b/c that's not always a constant!), or clean appearances to others...I want the Lord to do AMAZING things among me!  

Yes, I do!, I consecrate.

Life Pics

Abi playing in the sprinkler and singing her sweet songs about anything and everything.

Eli got new boots, jeans, belt, and shirt for his birthday.  He loves to dress well for church! {The vest was Chris' when he was little!}

Caleb stood by himself! For approximately 5 seconds...and hasn't done it again.  But, it was exciting at the time!

Here we are working on letters, numbers, and shapes.  It gives me great hope that homeschooling will go well!  Who says learning has to happen at a desk?!?!
