Hope your August is off to a wonderful start. Ours has been happy and busy. Full of baby dedications, ridiculously hot BBQs, and sun sun sun (which is crazy in England).
This month (or month-is, let’s not even pretend that I’m running on a strict schedule), we’re planning to focus on work.
It’s a topic that’s been looming huge for me as I’ve struggled to understand how motherhood changes my relationship to work, but it’s also a topic that I think plagues many of us.
How much, what kind, how often, for whom? The questions can pile up quickly. Happily, as always, the bible has something to say.
For that reason, our verse this month is from John,
I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. ||John 15:5||
For so many of our struggles with priorities and time allotment, this truth brings a simple solution.
So, please, join us this month as we memorise this verse together, meditate on the joy that it brings, and reflect on how it can change the days of our lives.
You can download some background to help you do that through the links below 🙂
If you’re interested in following more of our discussion and prayer around work, follow us on our instagram site, or like our Facebook page (there should be links in the right hand toolbar). You can also, as always, follow this blog to get notifications every time we release a new background.
Many thanks, and happy Tuesday!
