    December Devotional–The Book of Luke

    The Book of Luke “But even more blessed are all who hear the word of God and put it into practice.” Luke 11:28 “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.” Luke 12:31 It is important to spend time in the word every day. Some days are busy and just more challenging to get that accomplished, but that doesn’t mean on those busier days we can’t just spend more time in prayer. As we are in the beginning of December it is sometimes so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. This is the time…

    November Devotional

    Scripture: Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed is the one     who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take     or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,     and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,     which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—     whatever they do prospers. (NIV) Thought: Walk with the wicked. Stand with the sinners. Sit with mockers. We have a choice. We choose where to walk, where to stand, and where to…

    October Devotional

    Scripture: “Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord.” ~Psalm 32:10 Thought: What creates sorrow? Might it be that sorrow stems mainly from our expectations and our perceptions? Sometimes we have expectations for how things should be. Admit it. You have big expectations at times. Your birthday arrives and you wake after a full night of deep and restful sleep to the smell of your spouse cooking a fresh breakfast and the day includes calls and birthday wishes and the most thoughtful present from your kids. Perfect, accept that you were really up half the night with a stiff neck…

    September Devotional

    Scripture:  Zephaniah 3:17 The Lord your God is in your midst,                          a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness;                          he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. Thought: The prophet Zephaniah warns the Israelites of the coming Day of the Lord. A book full of God’s judgment but also tempered by the hope of his grace and mercy. The devotional verse focuses on God’s presence in our midst, his mercy, and his love. Without God, we are on a slow march to death and destruction. With God, we are saved, created new–the old has…

    July Devotional

    Scripture:  Mathew 4:4 But he answered, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Thought:  We can not go about life by ourselves, we need God by our side. We need to read and study the scriptures. We need to spend time in prayer with God. God is just and will help us to not be in worry and trust him.  Action: We need to spend time daily with God. Daily devotions or praying and meditating on his word.  Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, We pray that you would surround us with your presence today and every day.…
