Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

I want to begin today’s devotion with a story about Larissa and Ian. We’re going to feature them in hour 2 of our program this afternoon. Ian and Larissa were good friends. Their friendship turned into romance. Love. Then the unthinkable happened. A terrible accident left Ian brain damaged.

Larissa did not leave him. She was there every step of the way. On the show this afternoon, you can hear our discussion from last March. You’ll also hear the faltering voice of Ian trying to say a few words. He does a great job.

Their wedding was a couple of weeks ago. They are in for a difficult time. But they love each other and are committed to each other through not just the good times, but also the bad. The hard. The difficult.

It’s rare to find that kind of love. It’s the kind of love Jesus showed for you and me. And it’s that kind of love and commitment that we’re called to exhibit toward each other.

Read Philippians 2:1-11 again slowly.

Are you picking up some new things in these verses? Is anything standing out to you that didn’t the first few times through?

In verse 2, Paul says, “then make my joy complete.” What does this mean?
What kind of relationship do you think Paul had with the people of this church? Was it casual or deep?

What three things were they asked to do in order to make his joy complete?
Separate those three things and meditate on them.

How can you do the same thing that Paul asked the Philippians in your life today?

God bless you on this Labor Day. May God give you a great day with your family, at work, or alone.

Here's a picture of the wedding party. Larissa and Ian are seated. May you have this kind of joy in your life today.
