Ocala MOPS

Last Thursday my Mom and I had the privilege of speaking at the Ocala MOPS group about Creation Care. It was a joy to see so many other moms, joining together to encourage, pray and learn together. I was blessed in being able to share a little about our family’s journey towards “greening” our lives, but even more importantly, how seeking and serving God first, leads us to better care for His world. And in our journey, I have found that when we’ve taken steps to honor His creation, that it seems easier to connect with God. It’s almost as if He removes a layer of this world from our soul when we sacrifice something that we think (or have been taught) we need… There is a freedom in realizing that anything I own is truly not mine at all. Of course, I have my days and moments of wanting whatever is the latest and greatest… but I’m learning to ask myself, “Why? Would this bring honor or glory to God in any way?” May we strive to honor and glorify God in all that we do, including our care for His Creation.

The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it,
the world, and those who live in it…

Psalm 24:1
