Working Prayers or Praying at Work

  And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17 NKJV   Spiritual practice isn’t just about some quiet isolated, meditative time we spend locked away. It’s about real life. Really. As the fall season begins and

Turning the world upside down!

  “These who have turned the world upside down  have come here too.”  NKJV   That was the cry of the mob as they dragged followers of Jesus out of their homes in Thessalonica. Acts 17:6 It must have been a fearful moment for those simple believers. Or maybe not, perhaps they were so filled

 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds  Hebrews 10:24 NIV    

Naps, resting in the Lord

  By definition, a nap is a short daytime sleep. Some are called power naps because they happen very briefly and rejuvenate the napper.    I’ve noticed that napping is not uncommon in worship services.

Too Busy

“I have so much to do!”   Not an uncommon statement in my life and maybe yours too. But it’s when that dictates the plan for my day then I’m in trouble.  It’s the sense of urgency that messes me up. I forget to put first things or actually the first Person first. Yes, you

Monday’s Encouraging Scripture

Blessed is the one     who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take     or sit in the company of mockers, 2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,     and who meditates on his law day and night. 3 That person is like a tree planted by

Got Rhythm?

O One of the spiritual practices that I’ve found really helpful is doing a daily rhythm or daily office. I guess I identify with it because I so strongly identify faith as a rhythm of life.  For me, organizing my day is sometimes difficult. (I’m not organized) But if I slate in a variety of
