Work The Word Wednesday

I recently saw a post that said cleaning your home with kids around is like brushing your teeth while eating Oreos (And all the parents say…AMEN). And as I look around my home I can definitely attest to that! Josiah (3) and Zoe (9mo) love playing with their toys but hate putting those toys away. No matter how much we clean our home sooner or later the clutter will come back. Keeping our home clean takes work!

I think it is safe to say that we all understand for something to change its going to take work. To turn a home from messy to clean will take work, building a home will take work, passing an exam will take work but for some reason when it comes to our spiritual life we either are unaware that its going to take work or we are not willing to do the work.

Today is a start of a weekly post that I like to call Work The Word Wednesday.

“If you work the words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who dug deep and laid the foundation of his house on bedrock. When the river burst its banks and crashed against the house, nothing could shake it; it was built to last. But if you just use my words in Bible studies and don’t work them into your life, you are like a dumb carpenter who built a house but skipped the foundation. When the swollen river came crashing in, it collapsed like a house of cards. It was a total loss.” 
(Luke 6:48, 49 MSG)

So what is “Work The Word” Wednesdays?

It’s going to be a time where we will journey together by Working the Word of God into our lives. Building up the unstable bridges in our lives that have been damaged by fear and worry. To clean out the confusions in our mind that causes to second guess ourselves. To build a strong foundation so when the storms of life come we will not collapse.

How are we going to do this?

By answering any questions you may have about the word of God or your journey as a messenger of Hope.

I definitely don’t know all the answers but I’m willing to walk side by side with you as we dive into the word of God and work the word into our lives.

So lets DO WORK!

    Nice post. We have a child as well and we know what it’s like having to clean up and doing the work. For any positive result it takes action. Looking forward to this series of working the word of God.
