Om te begrijpen wat er in onze tijd gebeurt in het Midden-Oosten, moeten we de Bijbel kennen, aangezien het Oude Testament een verslag is van Israëls geschiedenis en Gods werkwijze met het Joodse volk.

(Part 2/2) “In a large family, there is no end of things to take care of.
One thing that is certain to bring happiness in life is to use each and every opportunity to bless and do good. If I am resentful that I have to give one of the kids a ride somewhere when I have things to do at home, I am wasting a chance to use that car ride to build a better heart connection with that child.
Each child is different, and what works with one won’t work with another. It’s important to acknowledge to myself that I don’t really know what to do, to pray for help, and to be flexible. ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding.’ Proverbs 3:5. Having a large family has provided me with countless opportunities to seek wisdom! Even the tired, busy days are filled with treasure when we seek Him.
These ‘treasures’ are the opportunities I have to find my own sin, acknowledge it, and pray to God for power to overcome. When I choose to go against my own sin, and deny my own will, through the power of the Holy Spirit, I become more and more free from the way I am by nature!
These small daily situations that make up the day can seem so difficult in the moment. But in the big scheme of things, they are only opportunities to be liberated from the sin that makes life heavy and difficult. When I choose to make use of these opportunities and go against my own sinful tendencies, then I am free to serve God and the others around me with joy!” Della (USA)
