Stand Firm

“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus” (Phil 2:5).

Be firm


Stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. (1 Cor 15:58)

I could have been at this place yesterday. I had an invitation!


Thank-you Christine, Jennifer’s sister, for the picture. I “stole” it from your FB page. Jennifer’s graduation yesterday at Oral Robert’s University in Tulsa, Oklahoma shows that she stood “firm” through the years, with the goal in mind of being a nurse. With her sweet and kind personality she will make a wonderful nurse.

Here is another “stolen” picture. This one is from Jenny’s FB page. The verse for the day is my greeting to Jenny. May you always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord. Follow your parent’s good example. Be the best you can in every area of your life.

Stand firm. Let nothing move you!

As for me, I need to take those same world to heart. It seems like every week the Year of the Home program takes more time. I spent all day yesterday, 12 hours, working on the theme for this month, which is blessings in the home. The article for this week is not done yet. The temptation crosses my mind, to just throw in the towel. But I can’t do that. I believe God has called me to do this program, so I just have to stand firm. Once again I ask for your prayers.

This week I am suggesting to make “blessing cards,” and I give several pages to download and print. I once made cards for my nieces and nephews to tell them I was praying for them. Here are attachments for blank cards that you can write messages on and give to people.

Blessing cards3The blank spaces are for signing the card or writing a personal message.

Here are pdf files you can use. Don’t worry that the file names are in Spanish. That’s the origin. They are designed by Cristina.

Cards with messages: Blessing cards

To finalize the message for the day, I want to remind us that God has many blessings for us, but they all come with a condition: obedience.

every blessing has a conditon

Blessings by the Bushels!


About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
