Heart Moves

…everyone whose heart God had moved—prepared to go up and build the house of the LORD in Jerusalem. All their neighbors assisted them with articles of silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with valuable gifts, in addition to all the freewill offerings. Ezra 1:5-6 My devotions this morning took me to Ezra 1, … Continue reading »

Just for Today

Just for today, I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful…  Anonymous Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.  Philippians 4:8  In the circles I … Continue reading »

The devil cometh…

  This morning my devotional time took me to 2 Kings 18.  For those of you who don’t know, I’m an Old Testament kinda gal. I love the wisdom that comes to God’s church from the OT, and I love the “voice” God uses and the examples He provides in those ancient texts.  For me, they make sense. They explain struggles and … Continue reading »

Lamentations 3:31-33 In reading the word of the Lord from Lamentations this morning, it was refreshing to realize that our … Continue reading »

Want More? Give More!

[After Jesus has destroyed all dominion, authority and power] he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.

Monsters Be Gone

When I write devotionals, I usually leave out the unpleasant parts of the Scriptures I reference. The parts about bloody warfare, heads coming off, eyes being poked out, and hail storms that crush hundreds of people in one swoop–these I do not include.

You Don’t Understand!

  Open mouth, insert foot! Have you been there, done that? Have you tried to help someone by delivering what you thought was good counsel, only to be told, “You don’t understand!” Me too. There was a day when that kind of impassioned response would have crushed my spirit, driven me away from the criticizer, and felt … Continue reading »
