...Justification is legal declaration that happens immediately. Your name is sealed in the Book of Life in the courts of heaven. Santification is you working out your salvation with the Lord. This is a lifelong process. To sanctify also means to be set apart for holy use. God comes and reveal Himself to you...
Our Pastor has been teaching us about justification and Santification....so good to have a Pastor who teaches out of Scripture!
Scrolling through online, I came across this recipe. Not every meal we have needs to have meat in it.
This slow-cooker lentil soup would be fantastic after a busy day at work, especially in winter. This is one of those go-to meals that you can even freeze for another day when you don't feel like cooking. Make a big batch and you have an easy lunch to heat up at work.
The Gracious Pantry website has a variety of recipes to try.

We choose whether to make life busy or not busy. We choose what we do - in work, family, hobbies, community, personal time.
Often we allow others to dictate how busy we will be and the consequences can be disastrous to us personally, to our marriage and family. Why do we allow this? Well, simply, we just don't want to be accountable or it gives us the opportunity to say, "It's out of my control".
However, crazy your life is, choose to make one small change this week. It could be as simple as spending 10 minutes without any phones, tablets, computers, TV, etc. Just go sit quietly outside in the garden and just breathe. Maybe you want the family to re-connect - why not choose one meal when everyone is home and have a basket for devices to go in just for that meal. It might not be dinner, it could be breakfast or lunch - whichever suits your family's lifestyle and just talk.
Maybe go for a walk with your spouse around the block or through the park a few times a week so you can both re-connect.
At the end of our life do we want to say we made it to the top of our game or do we want to look back and realise that we invested in the relationships that mattered most to us?
Something to think about..
Living in Far North Queensland in Australia is one of the most beautiful places in the world! I'm happily married with children and enjoy living life everyday. Life isn't always fun or easy, but it is character building and changing and this makes it exciting. I don't want to live a boring life - I want to live a life that makes a difference! How about you?
