Establish the Work of Our Hands

Today a friend saw my blog address on our ministry brochure and asked where "Establish the Work of Our Hands" comes from. I realized that I've never written about it here.

Just before we married in 1996, Bayo and I agreed on the two verses below as our "life verses" for our marriage and family. We have prayed these two verses nearly every day of our 12 1/2 years of marriage. After family devotions in the evening, we pray about various situations and then our family of five prays these verses in unison.

"May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us~yes, establish the work of our hands. (Psalm 90:17) One thing we ask of the Lord, this is what we seek: that we may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of our life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple." (Psalm 27:4)

It has been exciting to see how God truly has established the work of our hands over the years. We have discovered that God's plans are always far better than anything we could ever dream up.
