Hide and Seek
Daily Devotions 4/30/2008 2:11 AM
My kids love to play hide and go seek, especially in my kitchen and laundry room. Nathan is getting much better at it where he does not start giggling while hiding. He is also getting good at choosing his hiding places, much more so than just a year ago. Grace, on the other hand, typically hides in the same place that she just found the previous hider. We have to wonder around for a few minutes pretending not to know where she is before going back to find her.

Spiritual Warfare
Daily Devotions 4/29/2008 2:14 AM
Dear One, if you have ever doubted that you are up against spiritual forces, both good and evil, and that they are beyond your wildest imaginations, I pray that you will read these verses above and pray over them fervently! There are battles going on in the heavenly realms every day between God’s army and the evil minions of Satan. Many times we humans are caught right in the middle of the battle.

Crucifixion was actually a slow death by asphyxiation where the victim suffocated until he died. A crucified man had to push his feet against a block of wood to raise his body up to draw in breath. Then, he released his weight until he hung by his wrists. This up-and-down movement must have been agonizing torture for Jesus because of the wounds on His back.

Jesus Still Weeps
Daily Devotions 4/25/2008 2:06 AM
Two of the most precious words ever written are found in John 11:35, “Jesus wept.” To see our sweet Lord, with His heart breaking, weeping, and mourning over a loved one.

He is the Creator
Daily Devotions 4/24/2008 2:17 AM
Oh, I do so love the season of spring. It is probably my favorite season of the year, hands down. It reminds me over and over about the role of God as our Creator, Elohim, as I watch nature unfold into the symphonies God orchestrates.

In the Arms of Jesus
Daily Devotions 4/23/2008 2:12 AM
It had been a week since I had seen my youngest son. He had spent the week in Tennessee with my husband’s family and was so excited to be there. My sister-in-law had driven to Lexington and I was to meet them for dinner to pick him up. I was so excited to see my little guy. He is four years old and he is full of joy and wonder. The house was definitely empty without him and I was ready to have him back home.

Mary's Choice
Daily Devotions 4/22/2008 2:09 AM
Was honest labor being rebuked? Was hospitality? What was wrong with caring about Jesus and the disciples, making sure they were well fed and comfortable, the linens were clean, and the food was tasty? Please don’t make the mistake of thinking Mary did not know that she had some responsibility to finish the chores and preparation of the home.

Be Still and Know
Daily Devotions 4/21/2008 3:05 PM
With a three year old and a six year old, there is not a whole lot of time in our house to be very still and know much of anything except for chaos. Grace, the three year old, can sit quietly for about maybe five minutes at a time before losing attention and going on to find something else to do. Nathan, now, is learning more and more how to be still – but much of it is while watching TV or a movie.

Life Spent With Grief
Daily Devotions 4/18/2008 2:57 AM
Grieving is an important step in healing when there is a loss or an end. I found this to also be true for the broken-hearted parent of a prodigal child. The poor choices of the child result in many losses for the entire family. While other young people are going to the movies or the prom, you are counting how many more days of grounding are left and wondering when the next lie will be exposed. You can see the high-school years slipping away along with any hope of fond memories of care-free days filled with friends and experiences to last a lifetime.

And the Rains Came Down
Daily Devotions 4/17/2008 2:56 AM
Here in Kentucky, we recently experienced heavy flooding over several days. Lightning flashed across the sky, and thunder rolled on several occasions causing my children to cower and run for cover in the house. Following that, the rain just poured down, sometimes over an inch in an hour. When this continued for several days, the ground just could not contain it any longer, and flood waters started to rise. Normally trickling creeks ran like white water rapids, ponds spilled over their banks, and lakes rose to dangerous levels.
