Some things never change (and why that's a good thing)

mailchi.mp The last time I sent out my monthly-ish newsletter, we were all just getting started with this whole quarantine thing, and my writing, as I look back on it now, was pretty chipper. I'd been asking #wherearethegiftsinthis on social media and finding the gifts at every turn, even the gift of tears ...

Two Ways To Respond To COVID-19 - Wednesday's Word

We have reason to rejoice every day of our lives.

mailchi.mp It appears that this global pandemic that has occupied so much of our thinking and emotions and has restructured our living is beginning to lift (at least in Philadelphia, where I live).

06/09/2020

Christine Hoover

Some days it feels like we all got thrown into a bag and someone is shaking it and won’t stop. Which end is up? What has remained the same? What needs to *not* remain the same? What is stable anymore? When do we return to our regularly scheduled programming? Some mornings I just stare out the window, spinning, trying to see straight.

But today I thought about the basic truths of my faith, and I remembered that, of all the things that matter, the most important foundation hasn’t shifted at all. AT ALL. God is God. Jesus rose from the grave. The kingdom is coming. The last enemy to be conquered is death. Jesus is King. He said, “My Father and I are working.” HE IS WORKING. And I cling to this as I do my very breath.

I also thought today about how who I am and what I’m to be about hasn’t changed at all either. AT ALL. My task—and yours too—is to walk in faith each and every day, strengthened by the Spirit to LOVE. And this is what I have to remind myself: I’m not to focus my love on the person far away on the screen but rather to love my neighbor—the ones I see and live by and go to church with and engage in real life.

I am also to hope in Christ. Hope didn’t suddenly lose its footing when a pandemic hit. Hope doesn’t lose its power with political division or national unrest or injustice. Do I trust God or do I not? Will I walk in faith or will I not? Will I love my neighbor or will I not? When I ask myself, “But what do I do?”, will I think of my own reputation or will I love? In other words, is what I say I believe actually for real impacting the way I live?

Friend, God is the same yesterday, today, and always. Your calling hasn’t changed. But these three remain: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love.

If you don’t know what to do or which end is up, center your days on these three. We’re not asked to change the world. We’re not asked to explain it either. We’re called to faith, hope, and love.

I hope that helps you as it’s helped me. 💛

Should You Pursue Happiness? - Wednesday's Word

mailchi.mp It’s deep in the heart of every human being. It wanders around in your soul, waiting to be satisfied. The way you pursue it will set the trajectory of your life story. It is everyone’s quest but, in this world, no one’s destination.

👣 "The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps." -Proverbs 16:9

05/07/2020

It is what Jesus is, not what we are, that gives rest to the soul.

I keep trying to give pep talks to myself: you can do it. One foot in front of the other.⁣

I do it without thinking, without realizing that I'm looking to myself for the strength I need. But there is no power in willpower, no strength in this frail heart. ⁣

So when I lighted on this quote from Charles Spurgeon today, it felt like taking a deep breath of fresh air: ⁣

"It is ever the Holy Spirit's work to turn our eyes away from self to Jesus; but Satan's work is just the opposite of this; for he is constantly trying to make us regard ourselves instead of Christ...We shall never find happiness by looking at our prayers, our doings, or our feelings; it is what Jesus is, not what we are, that gives rest to the soul. If we would at once overcome Satan and have peace with God, it must be by looking unto Jesus."⁣

He is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26

We Need a Better Hope | Reston Bible Church

"I need a lasting hope, a hope that speaks to the pain in my heart. I need to remind myself of the hope that isn’t wishful thinking." Women's Ministry Director Marsha Mathews writes on looking back, looking ahead, and looking to a better hope: https://rstbl.ch/3c7VkBZ

restonbible.org When I began writing this, it was another rainy day with no hope of sunshine, and I had a bad case of the doldrums. When I feel that way, I can easily go to despair and find myself losing hope. When that happens, I have to ask myself what I’m putting my hope in. Am […]

Kelly Minter

I don’t know if this season for you has been straining or renewing or a sizeable portion of both, but one thing my soul has needed is the slowing down. Not slow as in I’m sitting around all day, because how being at home can turn into quite a bit of work is still a mystery to me. I’m sure you feel the same way.

But I’ve been restored by the not having to go, go, go (that phrase always runs in triplets, doesn’t it?) The be there, run to that, swing by this, don’t be late... I’ve had more time for reflection, prayer, sleep, conversation, the Word, for school (I didn’t know how hard going back to school would be).
.
Queen Elizabeth said in her recent speech, “I hope in the years to come everyone will be able to take pride in how they responded to this challenge...” Such beautiful words. I also hope we’ll be able to look back and think of the ways we drew closer to God. So many good Bible studies and resources from some truly humble and insightful authors are available right now. @lifewaywomen has lots of offerings, so check them out.

I’m thankful they’re offering the “Finding God Faithful” videos free for several more weeks. https://onlinestudy.smallgroup.com/v/FindingGodFaithful

Our sustenance during these very challenging days must by the Word of God.

Not long ago, I wrote this about Corrie ten Boom in an article for @thegospelcoalition about her book, The Hiding Place:

We need to hear from a woman starved of freedom, food, and family that what kept her alive was a contraband Bible she miraculously kept hidden throughout her ordeal. Corrie describes “gulping” the entire Gospels in one sitting and “living” in the truths of the Word as if they were written for her exact situation. In a flea-ridden bunkhouse, so filthy that no guard would enter, she and Betsie would open the Bible and read it aloud, waiting as different voices translated the life-giving words into German, Polish, and French:

"Like waifs clustered around a blazing fire, we gathered about it, holding out our hearts to its warmth and light. The blacker the night around us grew, the brighter and truer and more beautiful burned the word of God. . . . I would look about us as Betsie read, watching the light leap from face to face. More than conquerors. . . . It was not a wish. It was a fact. We knew it, we experienced it minute by minute—poor, hated, hungry. We are more than conquerors. Not “we shall be.” We are!"

If Scripture sustained these women in the darkest of places, surely it’s our sustenance as we wait for our own darkness to end. In our world full of ideas, may we cherish and “gulp” the life-giving words just as Corrie and Betsie did.

***

I've thought about that quote often in these days, and how, in solitary with her contraband Bible, Corrie marveled at how it seemed to have been written for just that time and experience.

In this umpteenth day of quarantine, apathy is setting in. I awake in frustration and find myself wondering where God is. And then I remember that He has given me Himself in the Scriptures, and that I may drink of Living Waters every minute my heart and mind grow parched. I marvel that His words have been written seemingly for each circumstance that comes our way, including this season of isolation and uncertainty.

Let us drink. Let us eat. His Word is our sustenance in the darkness.

Women's Devotional & Book Recommendation | Reston Bible Church

Our Women's Ministry Director, Marsha Mathews, has a couple encouraging resources you can check out here: including a free devotional from Kelly Minter: https://www.restonbible.org/2020/04/16/womens-devotional-book-recommendation/

restonbible.org Dear Ladies of RBC, Hope this finds you well.

This devotional went a long way in helping me …

Ephesians 1:18-21
"I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms."
