Over the last 5 years or so, our family has faced a great deal of adversity. We’ve cared for sick loved ones. We’ve battled unexpected health issues. We’ve lost a baby.
Sometimes life is hard. During seasons of adversity, it’s wise to hunker down at home and slow down the pace of life. You can’t serve the body well if your home front is bleeding and bruised.
However, that doesn’t mean that your calling to tell the world about Jesus is on hold. It just means that your battleground has changed. Instead of going out into the world to reach the lost, your home becomes a display case for God’s glory to shine. How you respond to adversity may speak the Truth louder than a Gospel tract or sermon.
The world is watching. How will you use your valley season to spread the Good News? As you press into Jesus as a family, there will be several opportunities to share.

Even if you are hunkered down at home, you can be a missionary. Get creative. Share your story and watch God move in unexpected ways as you live out the Gospel.
