Watchmen for Jerusalem
Daily Devotions 2/27/2009 5:49 AM
As I have told you so many times previously in this watchmen series, I passionately desire for you and me to be women who know how to look at current events from God’s viewpoint. Prophecy after prophecy is being fulfilled in our lifetime. We must understand what is going on in our world from God’s viewpoint on His throne. Today we focus again on Jerusalem in our series because God keeps focusing me on His city.

Why Here?
Daily Devotions 2/26/2009 5:26 AM
Have you ever wondered why you are where you are? I often ask myself why I was born in the free world, why am I blessed to have an abundance of food and clothing and why do I have multiple places to get an education and have the freedom to have a job or do whatever I wish. Why here?

No Longer His City

First the good news: For the past few years, a Christ Compels board member has traveled through the Southern Baptist International Mission Board on mission trips to Thailand. He works with Southern Cross and a team of missionaries to pass out Chinese Bibles and the Jesus video to the Chinese vacationing there for Chinese New Year. Reports state for every one video, the Chinese will show it to seven more people.

The Inner Circle
Daily Devotions 2/24/2009 5:08 AM
Early in life there were not many people whom I would claim as deep, close friends. Oh, I had many acquaintances and people I called friends. Being a minister’s daughter, one is constantly surrounded by people. But, there were not many people who really knew me and what was going on inside of me. Girls in middle school and high school typically were very superficial (or at least they were at my school, years and years ago), and it was hard to find a true confidant to talk with about all that life was throwing our way.

The Favor of the King

Last year, God had me camped in the book of Esther for close to a month learning more and more about her and all that she went through. The entire story of Esther is fascinating, especially from the perspective that God’s name is never directly mentioned in the book; yet, one can see the weavings of God throughout the entire story line. And through this young girl’s eyes, we see that she is power under control.

Roots Grow in Dirty Darkness
Daily Devotions 2/20/2009 5:04 AM
Do you ever find yourself facing issues you thought you had released? In searching for an answer, I realized that it is because the roots were cut off and not completely pulled up. We have all experienced this in our gardens as we hurriedly weeded a flower bed only to see the same pesky weeds reappear in a week or so.

The Ripple Effect
Daily Devotions 2/19/2009 5:36 AM
My kids (including my beloved four-legged child) love to play in the water. They love to jump in the water and splash in the water, and they love to throw toys for our dog to retrieve in the water. To be honest they love to throw pretty much anything into the water to see what will happen. One of their favorite things to throw into the lake where we play is a bar of Ivory soap because it floats instead of sinking. But, their all time favorite thing to throw in the water is a rock.

Field of Diamonds
Daily Devotions 2/18/2009 4:58 AM
We had been through a week of trials with all of the snow and ice. Our electricity went out, and we toughed it out in the house for three days before deciding that the kids really needed a hot bath. So we headed to the grandparents’ house an hour away in search of electricity and hot water. There were so many inconveniences about the situation: trying to keep our food from spoiling while we were gone and the power was out, trying to keep the fish from freezing in the house while we were gone, and running the gas logs just to keep the pipes unthawed a few hours a day.

The Bowing Tree
Daily Devotions 2/17/2009 6:05 AM
Every time I return to Kentucky and cross the border I sing our state song, My Old Kentucky Home. I have a few close friends who either love our state or love me enough to sing it with me. Sadly, my beloved Kentucky was one of the states that was pounded by the ice storm in late January 2009. When ice forms on the tree limbs, its weight is difficult for the limbs to bear. The limbs begin to sag to the ground.

Love and Communication
Daily Devotions 2/16/2009 5:27 PM
If marriage was designed by God, then why is it so hard? Are you like me and have thought this so many times? Marriage is not for the faint-hearted, the naïve, and quitters. It is only for the resolved, determined, and the tenacious. I don’t know of any other thing in life that has as much influence on our fulfillment and joy. Frankly, I don’t know how marriages without God as the center survive.
