Praise Thursday

Its Thursday, YAY!

Today on Praise Thursday we shared some amazing devotions from Our Daily Bread. The first one we shared was called “God’s Restoring Ways”. When we’ve hurt others or taken for granted God’s goodness in our life, it’s easy to assume we’ve forever marred the good gifts we’ve been given. But when we humbly turn to Him, we find His love is always reaching to embrace and restore. To read more click HERE. Our second devotional was called “The Baggage Activity”. Sometimes the burdens we carry make us feel like foreigners—alone and misunderstood—even among our peers. Read more HERE.

Navigating The Storms of Life

As we navigate life, there are often times when life gets so overwhelming we feel disoriented. In one of today’s devotionals called “Navigating the Storms of Life” we talked about this. When you’re feeling disoriented and lost, God’s faithful guidance through His Spirit and loving presence can comfort you and light your way. To read this devotional click HERE. Our other devotion was called “Not Taking Advantage”. The way we treat others reveals what we believe and value. When we choose to do good instead of harm, our actions might just prompt them to wonder about the God we know and love. To read this devotional for yourself click HERE.
