Panting After God
Daily Devotions 7/31/2009 3:37 AM
Do you know what it is like to be really thirsty and not be able to get water? Three days is about the longest most living creatures can live without water. There are a few exceptions, such as camels and elephants which have built in storage systems.

Dull, But Loved
Daily Devotions 7/30/2009 4:37 AM
In John Mac Arthur’s book Twelve Ordinary Men, he says that Jesus “chose to work through the instrumentality of those few fallible individuals rather than advance His agenda through mob force, military might, personal popularity, or a public – relations campaign.” Jesus was not about using strategies to enlarge His group of followers. He did not use marketing techniques.

Light Into the Darkness
Daily Devotions 7/29/2009 4:42 AM
My very good friend Terri and I have studied the Bible together for years at work. We have laughed and cried together as God has revealed Himself to us through His Word. We also have been in the Lexington Passion Play which portrays Jesus’ last days on earth. One year the director put us short girls on the front row, and we called it “praise row” because Terri and I truly love to worship Him and don’t mind letting it show.

Spiritual Workout
Daily Devotions 7/28/2009 5:13 PM
Exercise is good for the heart, body, mind, and soul. And I will be one of the first to admit that I am a bit of an exercise fanatic. I enjoy both the cardiovascular workouts and the weight lifting as well for strength building of my muscles. Typically I do a lot of fast walking and jogging for my cardiovascular routine. The cardiovascular exercise works out my heart to keep the blood moving through my body like it is supposed to in order that my organs receive all of the nutrients they need for proper functioning.

Friendship
Daily Devotions 7/27/2009 2:55 AM
Friends help us through so many different phases in life. As you can read from the passage above, friends are important while walking, sleeping, working, and staying strong. They keep us warm, defend us, and stick with us regardless of the circumstances that come our way. Friends are precious commodities in a world where not much else is considered important.

Doubts
Daily Devotions 7/24/2009 4:06 AM
In Matthew 11:1-6, John was in Herod’s prison for confronting the king with his sin of adultery with his brother’s wife. He was alone in a dark prison cell. I think the food in the prison would make even you and me long for a taste of those good ole locusts we ate in the wilderness. Some time back in the wilderness with wild animals would be better than the walls that enclosed him and the chains on his body while the prison’s creepy creatures crawled on him.

He Knows
Daily Devotions 7/23/2009 4:00 AM
When my husband Doug needs some help finding things in the house, he doesn’t go to me or our oldest two daughters. He asks our youngest daughter Victoria. When he doesn’t know where he left his keys, she’ll jump up, run to the exact location, and bound back to her father with the keys. When we forget what time a party starts, we ask Victoria (Tori). When we forget someone’s name at school, Victoria remembers. Not only has this developed her confidence, it has brought out her personality.

No Shortcuts
Daily Devotions 7/21/2009 5:58 AM
One of my favorite holiday movies is Irving Berlin’s “Holiday Inn” starring Bing Crosby. There is one particular scene in it that is hilarious as the “taxi driver” has just upgraded from a horse drawn carriage to a fancy new car. He picks up the leading lady at the train station and is headed for “Holiday Inn” to deliver her to some movie scouts that will be there to catch the main act, of which she is the main star. However, unbeknownst to her the others have “sabotaged” her coming to the inn by telling the taxi driver to take a “short cut” back that will actually take then through a pond instead.

Are You Drowning?

First, I need to tell you a little about Jamison. He is three, and if there is such a thing as being 200% boy - then he is it! If I had not raised two other children before him, I would totally be questioning my parenting skills. He makes me look 200% irresponsible! He is adventurous and as quick as lightning, thus, the reason for two ER visits and in a completely unrelated case a call to 911 where police were involved!!! At this time I need to remind you he is only three, and look at what all he's already done.

Fallen
Daily Devotions 7/20/2009 5:25 AM
You are chuckling right now at the title because you, too, remember those commercials from years ago with the elderly people who had fallen in their home and could not get up. The tag line of those commercials was “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up.” Please do not misunderstand that the message of the commercials was not in any way comical, but the people on there were not professional actors and so, to most of us watching that commercial, it appeared very fake. Therefore, you almost dismissed the point of the commercial because of this fake appearance.
