The Omni-God

Knowing who God is and What That Means for Me

by Katie Horner

I am so excited about this new series The Omni-God by Katie Horner.

  • I only wish I still had children in homeschool that I could use this with.
  • We did character studies with our children when they were growing up.
  • We did something very similar to The Omni-God.
  • The only problem was I didn't have anything this organized to work with.
  • That meant each month when we chose a new character quality to study I had to find everything I wanted to use with it.
  • It was time-consuming, yet something that we really valued and wanted to be teaching.

What The Omni-God Study means to you, the homeschool mom

  • You have a ready-made character study curriculum.
  • You don't have to spend hours looking up your own material.

Each lesson contains

  • Word Study
  • God Study
  • Bible Study
  • Song Study
  • Bible Character
  • Historical Character
  • Science Study
  • Self Study
  • Prayer/Art Pages
  • Optional review materials.
  • Additional resources, answer examples, printable helps, and internet links at Katie's website.

This study will be excellent if you want to use it yourself to get to know God better.

It would also be an excellent part of your homeschool curriculum and would make it easy for you to study character with your children.

It could also be used as a family devotional - which is what I just realized I could talk with my husband about doing.

You can learn more about the study here and get release date info too.

The digital version will include a family license.

Quiet Times in Busy Homes/giveaway Tags: Busy Homes Homes Kids Bible study quiet times
  • One of my biggest challenges when our children were small was managing to have time to spend with the Lord without dozens of interruptions. During one of our planning weekends I mentioned this to my husband.
  • We talked about Susanna Wesley and her habit of throwing her apron over her head so she could be “alone” to pray, but decided that with my distractibility that just wasn’t going to work well – at least not long-term.
  • After much talking and praying we came up with the first step of our plan.
  • Although we didn’t think it was ideal, we felt we were laying the groundwork for our goal – that each of our children would learn to spend time with the Lord first thing in the morning.
  • It would also provide time for me to spend much-needed time in the Word.


Quiet Times in Busy Homes

Our original plan

  • We had a series of Bible stories on video that ran about a half hour each.
  • We explained the concept of “spending time with the Lord” to our children, who were all under 5, and told them they would quietly watch their video to learn about Jesus while Mommy read her Bible and prayed. This really worked well.
  • I was amazed at how few times they interrupted me.  It was a relief to have something in place so that I didn’t have to attempt to “beat the clock” by getting up and finished before anyone else got out of bed.

Second step

  • After our oldest daughter learned how to read we purchased a “Beginner’s Bible”. It had big print and included the most common Bible stories. We had her read a story each morning before joining her younger siblings for the remainder of the video.
  • By the time she had read through that version her younger sister was ready to begin and Emily graduated to a regular Bible. We continued to work with them in this way until each of them was able to have their own quiet time with the Lord.

Baby Steps Work

We’ve done different things over the years: assigned them a devotional to use for the year, used a different version, and read through the Bible, but each of them now has established a firm habit of having a personal quiet time each morning.

They’ve learned how to persevere even when the Lord seems silent and how to share those times the Lord seems to be speaking just to you.

One year our oldest choose to read Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine By: Wayne Grudem for her devotional material. It's a huge book, but she divided by the days of the year and finished it. I haven't even read that!

Baby steps – isn’t that what life is all about? I know this seems simplistic, but I’m reminded of the verse in Luke 16:10a

[ctt template="5" link="bfazN" via="no" nofollow="yes"]“He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much…”http://phyllis-sather.com/quiet-times-busy-homes/[/ctt]

 

I have learned this in many areas, but especially in parenting. As I strive to be “faithful in that which is least” the Lord will build on that small area of faithfulness and help me to accomplish bigger goals than I originally thought possible.

God's Workmanship? Five Things You Can Do! Tags: Ephesians 2:10; cherylthomasmusic; We Are His Workmanship; Bible Truth; God's Love; God's Mercy: God's

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE GOD'S WORKMANSHIP?

By Cheryl Thomas

I wrote a song called:  "We Are His Workmanship" from Ephesians 2:10 after I had read this: 

10" For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, 

that we should walk in them."

I was fascinated that God had planned things for me to do even before I was born!

 I wondered how I would walk those works out?

I found my answer in the Bible....

 

 Let's see what the God's word says about it!

 

Image result for CLIP ART WE ARE GOD'S WORKMANSHIP 

Ephesians 2:10New Living Translation (NLT)

10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

 EVER WONDER JUST WHAT THIS MEANS IN YOUR LIFE?

This scripture teaches us that God has a great plan for us! He has planned our lives and the work we are to do with the purpose of loving God and loving people as the power behind our good works to bring glory to His Name.

 

“We Are His Workmanship” is teaching us that we belong to Jesus and as we use our gifts and talents for the Lord we build each other up, and bring glory to God.

When we bring all of our gifts; our abilities, our time, our lives to Jesus He takes them and makes something very beautiful in our lives.  When He does this, we influence others to seek God and we grow closer to the Lord.  His Presence flows through us and we “glorify” the Lord in all that we do and say. 

These are the good works that He planned for us even before we were born. These good works help other people know God more! 

You might do good works through your drawings, or paintings, or singing, or playing an instrument. You might do your good works with acts of kindness to others, feeding the poor, or encouraging a friend. 

Salvation comes as a free gift to us when we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior to forgive us our sins and give us new life in Him.  After Salvation we give our daily life to God to walk in the good works that He planned for us when He designed us. He made us so He knows us better than anyone! 

He knows what gifts and talents He has given us and He wants to pour His power through us to accomplish many things in His Name.  God’s number one priority in the “works” department is loving and blessing people with whatever abilities you have!

 

Now it's your turn! Here are 5 things YOU can do:

1. Write down all the things you love to do.

2. Now ask God to show you how you can do those things to show others your love for God and for them.

3. Keep a dream journal. 

4. Cut out pictures of all the things you love to do and make a collage. 

5. Pray and ask the Lord to speak to you all the dreams He has for you and to help you walk in all the good works He has planned for your life. 

Remember always:

There is no one in the world like you –you are a one of kind person!  No one can do things exactly like you can and the Lord knows how He has made you!
