Ep 112: Don‘t Be That Monkey — Devotion

October 13, 2021

Have you ever tried to capture a monkey? “How do you do that?” you ask. A fable is told that says you make a hole in a gourd with an opening just large enough for the monkey’s paw, then fill it with nuts and tie it to a tree. At night the monkey reaches into the container for the nuts and is unable to pull out his paw! Now, he could let go of the nuts and get his paw out quite easily, but he wants those nuts! He is caught because of his desire for more. Are we like that monkey?

Ep 111: The Family Table — Devotion

October 6, 2021

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever (Psalm 106:1b NKJV).

The family table … a place to pray, to praise, and to give thanks to the Lord for all His blessings. … a place to share God’s Word and our faith in Him with our children. … a place to laugh and share the joys of the day.

Ep 110: Tears of Sorrow — Devotion

Ep 110: Tears of Sorrow — Devotion

September 29, 2021

Oh that my head were waters, and my eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people! Oh that I had in the desert a travelers' lodging place, that I might leave my people and go away from them! For they are all adulterers, a company of treacherous men (Jeremiah 9:1-2).

Jeremiah, weeping over the condition of Israel, wanted to find a place in the desert and hide from all the sin and evil that had overtaken the world and the people of God. I often feel the same way about the world we inhabit today.

Ep 109: Tears of Joy — Devotion

September 22, 2021

Tears are a natural, important function of our perfectly created body. Scripture tells us many instances of weeping by the people of God. Sometimes they were tears of sorrow. Sometimes they were tears of joy.

Ep 108: Simeon‘s Song — Devotion

Ep 108: Simeon‘s Song — Devotion

September 15, 2021

[Simeon] blessed God and said, “Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel” (Luke 2:28b-32).

Does your heart melt when you see a tiny baby? Infants look so precious and vulnerable. Can you imagine the overflowing joy in Simeon’s heart when he first saw the baby Jesus, instantly knowing this little being was also the promised Messiah, God’s precious Son?

Ep 107: They are Precious in His Sight — Devotion

September 8, 2021

How reassuring to hear of God’s love to every person. An old children’s song reminds us that all people are “precious in His sight.” But are they precious in our sight?

Ep 106: The Perfect Age — Devotion

Ep 106: The Perfect Age — Devotion

September 1, 2021

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart …” (Jeremiah 1:5).

God continues to hold you in His loving hands throughout your childhood, teenage years, and all the stages of your adult life. Do all these times feel like “The Perfect Age”? Of course not! How are you feeling today? Does today feel far from the “Perfect Age”? Take heart, God uses these times to make us stronger, bolder, wiser, more patient, and loving. Therefore, today you are still at God’s “Perfect Age.”

Ep 105: The Cadillac Kid — Devotion

Ep 105: The Cadillac Kid — Devotion

August 25, 2021

Most of us need to have the Cadillacs of life removed from our eyes because they obscure that on which we should be focusing. It is easy to want all the fancy cars, gadgets, games, and distractions that advertisers insist we need to be cool, fit in, or just be up-to-date with everyone else.

The Cadillac Kid is a devotion on relationship with God, Christian living, personal spirituality, by Terri Bentley, originally published by LWML.

Ep 104: Praying Mothers — Devotion

Ep 104: Praying Mothers — Devotion

August 18, 2021

“For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition that I made to him. Therefore I have lent him to the Lord” (1 Samuel 1:27-28a).

What is the best gift a mother can give her child? I believe it is to pray for that child and surrender them to the Lord as Hannah did with Samuel in the verse we just read. We obviously will not physically surrender our children to the local pastor, but we can lay their lives at Jesus’ feet. We can pray for our children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Ep 103: Hand Holders — Devotion

August 11, 2021

Hands are such an important part of our bodies. What a wonderful creation God has wrought when He made us and created us with hands. Take a few moments and look at your hands. Think about the many things our hands do in a day … in a lifetime.

Hand Holders is a devotion on Christian living and our relationship with God, by Norma Jean Wilber, originally published by LWML.
