At Home with the Hymns

🎼 I’ll always love the old hymns! I’m so happy that we still sing them at HBCIndy, my church, handing them down from generation to generation. The lyrics of the great hymns are rich and profound, straight and true and full of doctrine. Many were written from the deepest depths of trial and tribulation or at the tip top height of triumph. The words soothe my soul time and time again whether at the stove or my writing desk, in the laundry room or pushing my vacuum, rocking a child or in the pew. 🎶 I’ve often propped the hymn book right there next to the stove on the stand meant to hold my cookbook so I can sing all the verses while I’m chopping and stirring. The power of worship in the everyday mundane is transforming and beautiful.

Growing in grace,

A Boost from Ephesians

Good Morning as we kick off the final week of our Ephesians Bible study/book club w/Eph 6:10-12!

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Until the Lord returns let us all continually be strengthened by His mighty power!

It is imperative that we arm ourselves with the equipment God has provided in order for us to stand in the battle against the devil’s schemes.

While it may appear our enemy is mankind, it is not. Our enemy is the devil and his workers. This is a spiritual battle for eternal souls!

Therefore, let’s stop fighting one another, especially at home, remember these conflicts we face daily are only temporal.

What really matters is Eternity!

So, when I’m in a struggle, I’ll keep putting on the whole armor of God & then ask myself…in light of Eternity does this really matter!?!
