Whatever You Do

Back to school time seems earlier every year. This year I hardly noticed. I retired after 26 years working as a school Speech Language Pathologist.

My retirement began unstructured. Time would slip by. I valued the “rest” but felt a little adrift. I began to schedule a daily devotional or Bible study time. Starting my day with prayer and Bible study has provided some needed structure.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him (Colossians 3:16–17).

Equipped with the word of Christ we are strengthened to serve the Lord with thankful and joyful hearts. As Lutheran Women in Mission, we joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others. Daily devotions are available by email. Bible studies and other resources, including a daily Bible reading guide, are available on our website, lwml.org.

What a privilege it is that God can speak to us every day through His Word.
