    Phew! I got tired just reading this. But then I looked at my day, and even though our occupations are very different, (you, husband, father, an associate pastor, author, worship leader, painter, entrepreneur, etc… Me, a wife and mother) there just doesn’t seem to be enough time for every task that needs accomplishing. So, just for fun, I wrote out my schedule :)

    In the past couple years, the Lord has really shown me that in the mundane parts of my life, I am building the foundation for four citizens of God’s Kingdom and of the United States to be world changers. I used to struggle with the fact that because I wasn’t outside of my home much, that I wasn’t doing enough for the Kingdom. But the Lord spoke quietly to me one day, “If you won’t do it for me, who else will?” It was then that I realized that God has placed me in this moment in time to be a helper to my husband, and as a mother to our four children. That’s enough for me. Besides, I couldn’t possibly fit in one more thing :)! I admire all the gifts that God has given you and Jenny and I am SO THANKFUL that He placed you in Watertown, NY so that we could know and love your family. Thank you for expending your energy for the Kingdom of God here and abroad, and also to Jenny for being your most excellent helper. And, for the foundations you both are building to raise up world changers. Love you both!

      “The Lord has really shown me that in the mundane parts of my life, I am building the foundation for four citizens of God’s Kingdom.”

      Well said!

      Thank you for taking the time to write this out – there’s something very impressive about seeing on paper (especially on days where you don;’t feel like you got anything accomplished…which, strangely, I felt like today).

      “The Lord has really shown me that in the mundane parts of my life, I am building the foundation for four citizens of God’s Kingdom.”

      Wow… that is an awesome statement.. and kinda scary when I examine my own life.

      Lord, help us bear good fruit.

  • Kim Ingerson

    P.S. Sorry for the lengthy reply. I guess I got a little carried away :)

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Don’t be! It’s great to be surrounded by people who get things done for the Kingdom!

    OK, I need a nap, now.

    • http://www.christopherhopper.com Christopher Hopper

      Take one for me! Love you!

  • Taisia

    Wow! Did you have to do all this in one day?! Makes me tired just thinking about it…

      Most of my days are just like that. :)
