    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.

    April Devotional: You Can’t Hide From God

    Scripture Verse:  Psalm 139: 1-16  “ O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it. Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven,…

    February Devotion: Courage

     Scripture Verse: Deuteronomy 31:6  “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Devotional Thought: Sometimes we don’t feel very strong or courageous. Life can be hard and some days are just tougher to deal with than others. We need not fear because just as this verse says the Lord God goes with us and leads us. He will never leave us as long as we keep our faith strong. The Lord God gives us the strength and the courage to deal with whatever comes our way.…

    January Devotional: New Year, New Approach

    Scripture for the Week: Psalm 31:23 reads “Love the Lord, all his faithful people! The lord preserves those who are true to him, but the proud he pays back in full.” Devotional Thought: Happy New Year! It is hard to believe we have turned the calendar once again. When I was younger I was always told time would go faster as I aged. I, of course, didn’t believe any of that. However, as I am more than likely halfway through my life I completely understand. We often hear the phrase “a new year, a new you.” It focuses on trying the latest diet fad, exercising like mad, and trying new…
