Joshua 24:15 (NKJV)

15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”


We live in a crazy busy world... There are many things that we can all find to do in the place of our time to serve the Lord... We often times find our selves to busy to make time for Him, to talk to Him, to Worship Him, and to show Him that we Love Him.

It could have been any other "god" the god of the Amorites, or the "gods which  your father served" for many of us, it could have been one of the many other things that we find ourselves putting in front of the Lord.


One definition of a God is "an image, idol, animal, or other object worshiped as divine or symbolizing a god". In a choice of serving our God, the creator and author of the Universe. 

Exodus 20:3-5 (KJV)

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God


HE is a jealous God... and we should have to other God's before HIM. Meaning that when He says that His day, is His day..  He means that His day is HIS day... Anything that we allow to get before HIM, take our attention form Him is a god in our life. This is why "as for me and MY house, we will serve the Lord". I will do everything possible to stay focused on HIM and not let ANYTHING take away from my time with my Lord. For He is Good and worthy of our Praise.

My house is a little crazy it self sometimes with two young boys, and two dogs running around... But, no matter how busy or crazy life is... it is and always will be....

As for me and MY CrAzY House... WE will serve the Lord...
