Family Ties that Grind
Devotions and Christ Compels Updates 11/26/2010 8:51 AM
So, when you think about the holidays and all that time spent with family, what kinds of emotions does that bring to mind? Love, compassion, peace, patience; anxiety, worry; anger, resentment – or maybe a mix of all of the above.

How thankful are you this holiday season? Have you lost the joy that you once knew or have you always struggled with what you could possibly be thankful for?

He was There!

As she was talking a walk down her memory lane, I asked the Lord where was I 15 years ago? Now this was the third day of the conference that was celebrating 15 years of women’s ministry. The 15 year theme was prevalent.

Can you just imagine what Abram and especially Sarah were feeling after they got this message? At least Abram got to hear the message directly from God while Sarah was probably taken completely by surprise when her husband came walking in later that night and relayed the good news. “Sarah, dear one, we are moving,” Abram says. “Where to, honey?” Sarah sweetly asks. “I have no idea,” Abram quickly responds.

A Love for Learning
