As Unto the Lord


Colossians 3:17
Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name
of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks through Him to God the Father.


That verse has come up a lot lately. When I do something difficult, I think to myself, "as unto the Lord". Many, many times when I worked in a nursing home or was doing home care, I had to remember that I wasn't only helping the patient, I was serving Jesus.

It doesn't have to be only when we are doing something difficult. We can do any task no matter how small, "as unto the Lord".

I just want to encourage you (and me), as you finish your week, keep your eyes on Him. Do all tasks, "as unto the Lord".

Delighted to meet you and follow along! You splashed me today in God's goodness. I hope to get to know you a bit more.

Blessings from Costa Rica,

My new friend, I'm sorry but I have no idea how I found you ... just going on an adventure with the Lord to encourage others in blog land. I'm new to this blog adventure (just started a few months ago) and am learning to simply share my heart. All of my posts are simply from my journal. yep, I still write with a pen and paper, it's just how I communicate best and capture what the Lord is doing in my life.

Funny, some of my best times with the Lord are when I'm washing dishes too! Delighted to meet you. Glad you were splashed in God's goodness.

Hugs from this missionary mommy,

and no, I've never thought of writing a devotional, writing on the blog was a HUGE step of faith for me, as I have never written publicly before.
