Therefore my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that nothing you do in His name is ever in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58

G’day and welcome to another weekly update!!

After a few catch up phone calls with some of the Crossing Australia team this week I was reminiscing on our historic adventure and dreaming about getting out into those vast Australian deserts again. We are starting to dream ahead and pray about what God has for us in 2017 and beyond. But till then it’s back to work for everyone!!! Back to the reality of responsibilities at home and a sense of normality. Back to paying the bills and alarm clocks and putting the garbage bins out on Wednesday nights…..

But the good news is this. No matter where you are or what you are doing.. whether its on some great adventure or just office administration you can do it with a kingdom attitude.

When you wake in the morning and seek first God’s best in your life and His righteousness.. then so much of the garbage of this world will not affect you. The Good news is that God is so much greater than the latest news. While ever your heart is for Him and for loving people like He does then you can take joy in knowing your work has great value, even the mundane little things nobody ever sees.

Keep looking to Him and living life with eternity in your heart.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. Hebrews 12:1-2

Thanks for your support.

Godspeed,
