The Daily Load

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart,
as though you were working for the Lord and not for people.”
Colossians 3:23, GNT

Brother Lawrence, a seventeenth-century French monk stated, “We ought not be weary of doing little things for the love of God, who regards not the greatness of the work, but the love with which it is performed.” Join me this week for my 5-day devotional series for ZooKeeper's Ministries, The Daily Load, and focus on listening for God's voice in life's routine chores.

The Daily Load
Day 1: Sorting It All Out

Day 2:  Unshutter the Clutter

Day 3: Doormat-ology

Day 4: Aisle of Love

Day 5: Cleaning Out the Cobwebs

"This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalm 118:24, NIV

Partners Against Crime

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love,
and of a sound mind."  2 Timothy 1:7 KJV

As easy as it is to justify, I was walking contrary to Scripture―living in a spirit of fear. Can you relate?

To read today's devotion, Partners Against Crime, as well as all of my devotions on Christian Devotions connect with the following link.

Steamin' Down the Track

No holdin' back what's comin' . . .
But we can hang on for the ride!
"Who am I, LORD God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? And as if this were not enough in your sight, My God you have spoken about the future of the house of your servant. You LORD God, have looked on me as though I were the most exalted of men. There is no one like you, LORD, and there is no God but you!"
1 Chronicles 17:16-17, 20, NIV
To God be the Glory!
