As I journey through life, God is calling me to put some intention into creating memory markers for myself and my family. Otherwise, I might easily ignore or forget an answer to prayer, the day of my baptism, a decision to ask Christ into my life, a promise I made to God...or myself.
Ruth 1:16-17 "But Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God."
Being a follower of Jesus is rich in history, customs, practices and events.
Luke 4:16 "He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom."
Having practices embedded into our lives helps to keep us on track and to remind us of our Christian heritage. These can be as simple as reciting a prayer around the dinner table or reading a Bible passage to your child before bedtime to something as complex as hosting a Christian wedding or planning a family week at a Bible Camp.
In our busy, fast paced lives we can find ourselves neglecting the very things that bring us life, joy, peace, hope and rest. I would encourage you to watch for opportunities to establish deep roots to hold you fast, so that when a storm blows through you are secure.
In His peace,
Director of Women's Ministries
