Surely God Isn't Calling Me
Daily Devotions 8/29/2008 3:34 AM
In 1992 I was asked to be a Women’s Ministries Director for the first time. It was a very exciting prospect because God had been calling me into more involvements with women, and my response was “yes.” As the time approached to put the ministry into action, I realized that I was in no way equipped to do this sort of ministry. Why would God call me to something that I couldn’t do?

Setting the Example
Daily Devotions 8/28/2008 5:47 AM
I recently went on a business trip to Colorado. I finished my work on my laptop that evening, then I did Bible study for an hour, and then I was ready to go to bed. I turned on the television just because I was curious about what the rest of the world was watching. I turn on my television on Sundays to watch Charles Stanley and John Hagee or when I am going to put in a DVD. There are just too many other things in life to do.

Just One Sheep

Shepherds are fiercely loyal to their sheep – every single one of them. They sleep with them and eat with them. They even lay across the doorway of the sheep’s fold to make sure that none get out and nothing else unwanted gets in. Shepherds would give up their lives for these dumb, sweet animals because their livelihood depends on the sheep’s wool selling in the market to make clothing for the people.

Just Sow

When the people heard Jesus’ words, “The kingdom of God is like,” they must have thought He would compare it to the majestic mighty mountains. Maybe they thought the kingdom was like the Mount of Olives, Mount Moriah, or Mount Carmel. Perhaps they imagined it to be like the political and spiritual center of their nation, the city of David, Jerusalem. The city is beautiful, but it is also a fortress.

Wilderness Wonderings

This past Sunday I was reminded of a song that I loved growing up in church. But it is one particular part of a verse that strikes a chord in my heart so very deep. It is from “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing,” written by Robert Robinson in 1758. The verse goes like this…..

The Chair
Daily Devotions 8/22/2008 3:01 AM
At work, we recently had a meeting with a very important customer. The meeting required weeks of advance preparation on many people’s part to ensure that the correct people were in attendance and that the correct message was going to be given. I was to attend and give a demonstration concerning some of our more advanced solutions that would greatly benefit the customer. I arrived at the meeting about 30 minutes early to ensure everything was set up. To my humility, there was no chair or nametag for me.

Loving People
Daily Devotions 8/21/2008 3:18 AM
If you were to ask me if I loved people the answer would be a resounding YES!! I find myself loving people I don't know. I often pray God would let me love His people like He does and with a heart like His. I realized how easy it is to say you love people until God gives you a difficult person to love and He puts them right in your face. That is exactly what happened to me and is happening this week. God has put someone in my life and in my face that I honestly find hard to love.

Do You Trust Me?
Daily Devotions 8/20/2008 3:10 AM
Ah, I had just finished a rather difficult business trip and was so excited to be back in the continental United States and on the highway driving home to my family. The week had not gone as I had hoped, not completely a bust, but certainly not all that I had anticipated that it would be with the preparations we had made. So, I was even more anxious to be back in the comfort of my own home, spending time with the family that I so dearly missed during my travels.

Face to Face

I wrote this at the National Women’s convention after my experience of a fresh revelation of the presence of the Almighty God. I declined going to dinner with my friends and slipped back to the hotel room. I had to capture on paper what happened with God and me. This is so personal, but I had to share it with you.

Whirly Swirly Things

My daughter Victoria had the sweetest kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Sloane has the softest voice and every part of her was the beauty of a woman. Truly her gentleness is evident to all who meet her. For Mother’s Day this year, Mrs. Sloane brought each child to her desk to tell her in his or her own words their favorite food recipes their mothers make.
