Living With a Zeal that Pleases Heaven

By Andrea G. Schwartz
September 24, 2008

One of the perks of being in the mothering/homeschooling teacher mode for over twenty-seven years is that I have enough experience to know that being subtle with people rarely produces any benefit for them or me. Additionally, when you cross the half-century mark, people don’t expect you to flower your speech with niceties or political correctness. That’s why I choose to focus my efforts and attention on those who are driven to follow the full counsel of Scripture in every area of their lives and thinking.

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of conducting an international Bible study making use of Skype technology with a group of ladies on three continents who are hungry and thirsty for God’s righteousness. Together we have purposed to storm the gates of hell from the worthy position God has given women to further His kingdom. It is such a blessing to interact with women who endeavor to live life to God’s glory, with a zeal that pleases Heaven!!
