Monday Mission - Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day! Whether you recognize today as a day to celebrate or not, something that IS worth celebrating is the truth that God loves YOU. I love this reminder from Ephesians 3: 17B-19,

Friday Devotional - The Soil of our Heart

This morning we’re looking at Mark 4:1-21, which is about the parable of the soils. Most often this parable is seen as a salvation passage. In other words, Christians are the result of seeds falling on good soil. BUT, we’re going to look at it from a different perspective today. We’re going to look at it as a daily experience for each of us who claim Christ in our life.

Friday Devotional - Gratitude

This week on there have been posts on gratitude, and they have really hit me. Ephesians 5:20 talks about having gratitude to God in everything. It’s a key verse in the Book of Ephesians so, it’s not just a good idea. The Lord is instructing us to do this, to make gratitude an intentional habit. Gratitude is an act of obedience.

Picture of a newspaper clip that reads "Thank you for the Chores: Lord Thank you for the sink of dirty dishes; we have plenty of good food to eat. Thank you for the big pile of dirty clothes; we have them to wear. Thank you for these unmade beds; they were all comfortable last night. Thank you for this finger-smudged refriderator that desperately needs defrosting; it has served us faithfully for a long time. Our family is gratefuly for the tall grass that needs mowing; we al enjoy our private yard. Thank you for that slamming door; the children are healthy and able to run and play. Lord, the presence of all the chores awaiting me says that you have richly blessed this family. I shall do them all gratefully.

Thursday Thoughts - Thank you for Chores

Growing up I must have seen this prayer 1,000 times. My mom clipped this prayer out of a church newsletter several decades ago. She had it hung up on the side of the refrigerator, where it still hangs today. While this is only a short 8 sentence prayer, it is such a great reminder that even in the chaos and busyness of life, we so are so blessed!

Tuesday Truth - Gratitude in Hardship

It is easy to give thanks and praise God in the good times, but what about is the hard times? The verse we looked at yesterday, 1 Thessalonians 5:18, calls us to “give thanks in all circumstances.” Let’s look at how some of our heroes of the faith praised and thanked God even in difficult times.

Monday Mission - Living in Gratitude

Today we find ourselves on the last day of the first month of 2022. Did the first month go exactly as you envisioned? Were you able to maintain all those New Year’s resolutions? One goal I set for myself going into 2022 was to live a life full of gratitude. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 instructs us to, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Friday Devotional - Overflowing Grace

Sometimes God has to put us in the most lowly, vulnerable positions before we are ready to hear and see what he has prepared for us. Last year I experienced that as I battled through a series of struggles with Depression. At one point my negative thoughts overwhelmed me and I imagined that the world would be better off without me in it. Thankfully, I was honest with my husband and he took me to the local Emergency Room where I received compassionate care that placed me with the professionals who would best help me through my lowest point. It was during a hospitalization that I spent hours and hours in God's Word and began to feel Him once again.
