We enjoyed a day of spring sunshine this week, and now the Lord has seen fit to bless our land with more rain. I'd prefer just skipping past spring to get to summer, but that's often my thing-wishing I was past the hard stuff and right into what I'd prefer (and I'm not just talking about the chaos of a bazillion shoes, boots and jackets in my mudroom...or the ongoing rain and cold).
Our family has been in another transition, as my husband resigned from his pastoral position last month, shifting into a logistics role at a local business. We're grateful to continue calling our church home, to worship and serve together, just in a bit of a different way.
As we end our week, let us call out and believe, "my God, my rock in whom I put my trust, my shield, the horn of my salvation, and my refuge; you are worthy of praise" (Ps 18:2).

"Across the globe, Christians suffer great costs for their devotion to Jesus. One in seven experiences intense persecution.

But if we desire our children to understand the cost of following Christ and the state of the global church, we must intentionally teach them about persecution."
