And the Future Holds…

…nothing you should worry about today! Sure, we hear that all the time, but so quickly and rather easily we are right back there… fussing over a pending job opportunity, toiling over a potential home, stressing about the weather and an upcoming outdoor event… even just planning a strategy for your career or retirement… forgetContinue reading “And the Future Holds…”

Unexceptional Presence

As we recently discussed in The Meaning of Suffering devotional, the painful events in our lives help strengthen us, help lead us, even help us witness and minister to those around us. One of the saddest ‘arguments’ people sometimes have about God is that He ‘allows’ the world to suffer, to tear itself apart, toContinue reading “Unexceptional Presence”

Let Them Suffer

We have had occasion to discuss today’s devotional a couple times in recent months, so this title may sound familiar… or, it may actually confuse you, too. Letting others suffer seems SO contrary to the message of Jesus, the compassion He has instilled in our hearts, and the reward of hope we have realized… butContinue reading “Let Them Suffer”

Gotch’er Back

Tumult, discord, chaos, or even just simple confusion are all mechanisms of fear… and Satan loves using fear to set us back on our heels, to cause doubt, or merely to cause us to pause long enough to just miss a ‘divine appointment’. Our devotional today helps remind us that fear can actually be aContinue reading “Gotch’er Back”

Tooty Fruity

The Bible tells me that I should not get weary from doing well, that I should not fret over seeing immediate results, the fruits of my labor, or even just the difference I may be making in this world. Our devotional today is an encouragement about this, and reminder that He does know our labors,Continue reading “Tooty Fruity”

Go On, Admitted It

Jesus is not a crutch; He’s the whole hospital! He can repair your brokenness.  He can heal your diseases.  He can transplant your sinful heart.  He can breathe new life into your lungs.  He can straighten and strengthen your spine.  He can bring sight to the blind.  He can revive your very soul.  We justContinue reading “Go On, Admitted It”

…But Wait!

The deal keeps getting better and better… those infomercials selling gadgets, gizmos, and home-item trinkets all have that one recurring theme of “…but wait” as they are working to impress you enough to make that sale. The longer you ‘do’ wait, the better and more unbelievable the deal does get… to the point you feelContinue reading “…But Wait!”

Pay Attention, Here’s Your Change

To my knowledge, I’ve never been in a coma. I have be so focused and attentive to something at times that I miss many other things going on right around me, be it; a crash or accident, the sudden death of a loved one, or even something as simple stopping a sudden plumbing leak. WeContinue reading “Pay Attention, Here’s Your Change”

None of Your Busyness

One of the very easiest ways to answer Jesus’ invitation to come to Him, is; stop letting things keep you from Him! Easier said than done, I know SO well, but if you take a moment to consider that our busyness really pulls us from His invitation to fellowship with Him, so setting aside theContinue reading “None of Your Busyness”

The Letter ‘R’

Our devotional today ends up showing us how one little letter, the letter ‘R’, can make such a difference in our lives and in our walk with the Lord. First, we read in Isaiah 61:10, “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed meContinue reading “The Letter ‘R’”
