  • "...many people struggle to learn how to pray because they are focusing on praying, not on God.“

  • “The criteria for coming to Jesus is weariness. Come overwhelmed with life. Come with your wandering mind. Come messy. Don't try to get the prayer right; just tell God where you are and what's on your mind. In bringing your real self to Jesus, you give him the opportunity to work on the real you, and you will slowly change."

  • “We look at the inadequacy of our praying and give up, thinking something is wrong with us. God looks at the adequacy of His son and delights in our sloppy, meandering prayers.”

  • "At the center of self-will is me, carving a world in my image. At the center of prayer is God, carving me in His son's image."

We both need to intentionally slow down, to say to God, “You are way more important than all I have going on here.” It’s realizing, we don’t need anything but Jesus.

“Most people mistakenly believe that all you have to do to stop working is just not work.”

Gospel in Life, Tim Keller

Permit yourself and your husband to experience Sabbath rest

“Sabbath is thedeliberate limitation of productivity,as a way to trust God and be a good steward of yourself and your resources.The purpose of the Sabbath is to enjoy God, life in general, what you have accomplished in the world through His help, and the freedom you have in the gospel – the freedom from slavery to any material object or human expectation.”

Gospel in Life, Tim Keller


Permit yourself and your husband to experience sabbath rest4
Permit yourself and your husband to experience Sabbath rest

“Only when we have identity, meaning and significance based in Jesus – something beyond our work – will we find deep rest for our souls, a rest that will abide with us in our work. Why? Only Jesus offers us a finished work to rest in. A Christian is someone who rests in Jesus’ finished work instead of his or her own.”

Gospel in Life, Tim Keller

“We must have this deep spiritual rest, or else we will experience a weariness that vacations can’t cure.”

Seems like all I can see was the struggle

Haunted by ghosts that lived in my past

Bound up in shackles of all my failures

Wondering how long is this gonna last

Then You look at this prisoner and say to me

“son stop fighting a fight that’s already been won”

All my life I have been called unworthy

Named by the voice of my shame and regret

But when I hear You whisper,

“Child lift up your head”

I remember oh God, You’re not done with me yet

I don’t have to be the old man inside of me

Cause his day is long dead and gone

I’ve got a new name, a new life I’m not the same

And a hope that will carry me home

  • To Jen: “Ahhh! Please pray for me. I just totally blew it with Brian. In a matter of 20 minutes, I think I just failed at pretty much all of the P’s that I’m writing about in my message to share with SBS.”

  • To Beth: “Sometimes our actions show what we truly believe. Your actions have to be rooted in belief, and this belief is a gift of the Holy Spirit.”

Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up.It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful. It is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7

“We instinctively know that love leads to commitment, so we look away when we see a beggar. We might have to pay if we look too closely and care too deeply. Loving means losing control of our schedule, our money and our time. When we love we cease to be the master and become the servant.”

Love Walked Among Us, Paul Miller

“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.”

Philippians 2:3-8

Hey honey, how’s your day going? I just wanted to check in with you. We have been so busy already today! Even though Benson was up every 2 hours last night, I got up before the sun and spent an hour doing my Bible study then I did 45 minutes of the “lose your mommy pooch” cardio and abs video. I’m getting the kids ready for school now – it was really hard to butter everyone’s toast this morning with one hand while standing and nursing Benson with the other arm, but I managed. The windchill is -25 degrees, so shopping the sales at both Target and Hyvee with 3 of our kids this morning will be tricky….but I’ll manage. I will be doing 6 loads of laundry today, interspersed with baking the meal for a SBS friend who just had a baby. I won’t forget that you need 5 shirts ironed for this week or that you are out of deodorant. I love you! Have a great day!

“Then Jesus told this story to some who had great confidence in their own righteousness and scorned everyone else:“Two men went to the Temple to pray. One was a Pharisee, and the other was a despised tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed this prayer: ‘I thank you, God, that I am not a sinner like everyone else. For I don’t cheat, I don’t sin, and I don’t commit adultery. I’m certainly not like that tax collector! I fast twice a week, and I give you a tenth of my income.’ “But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his chest in sorrow, saying, ‘O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner.’ I tell you, this sinner, not the Pharisee, returned home justified before God. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

Luke 18:9-14

“The first step toward God is realizing you are on the wrong path going the wrong way. Knowing we are inadequate before God and other people leads to compassion, but thinking we are good before God and others makes us self-centered and difficult to live with. The better we think we are, the less we can love.

Love Walked Among Us, Paul Miller

    The 10 P’s…..

    Submit your life to Christ. Draw close to Him through prayer and rest. Rely upon the Holy Spirit as you provide, protect, prevent, abide in parentheses, and persevere.

    When you recognize God’s work in your life, give Him all of your praise, and in all things, preach the truth of God’s amazing love.

    But when you fail, let grace be your redemption and humility be your friend.
