What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

In covenant

Adele had a very special day yesterday. The day of her baptism.

As I stood in front of the church, confirming my belief in the promise of the covenant and vowing before witnesses to raise up my child, teaching and training this child in the ways of the Lord,

I felt wholly inadequate to the task.

There is no more transparent a time, though, that allows me to see so clearly that though I fall short... Daily. No, more so...moment by moment... God's grace is sufficient. Adele was His child first, not mine. He has not only a plan for her life, but a way in which to get there.

I pray He will guide and direct my steps, as such a monumental task stands before me.
