Singing Over Us

Today is Praise Thursday! Today we talked about John 14:6 which says, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. Jesus tells us that he is the only way, good works alone will not get you there. This devotional was called “All Roads?” and you can read it by clicking HERE. In our second devotional we talked about how as God’s children redeemed by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, sometimes we hard of hearing, unable, or perhaps unwilling, to tune our ears to the exuberant love God sings over us. Perhaps we might try to listen more closely to hear the joy ringing loudly in His voice. To read more from this devotion called “Singing Over Us” click HERE. Thank you Our Daily Bread for these awesome devotionals!

Q: To what city was Saul traveling when he encountered a great and blinding light?

Praise God it’s almost Friday

On this very hot Praise Thursday we shared some uplifting devotionals from Our Daily Bread! Our first devotion is called “Failed Again”. In Galatians 3 it’s said that God continually supplies us with His Spirit and works powerfully through us as a free gift—not because we’ve done anything or deserve it. You don’t have to work for His grace—it’s free. To read more click HERE. In our second devotion called “Death Zone” we talked about being humble. If we’ve achieved some success, we may appropriately celebrate the accomplishment and accept congratulations, but we must keep moving. We’re in the death zone. Come down the mountain. Humbly serve others in the valley—asking God to guard your heart and your steps. To read the full devotional click HERE.

Q: What book of the Bible contains the Fruit of the Spirit?

A: Galatians

Congratulations to Stephanie of Mount Vernon for answering that question correctly, she won a $5 gift card to Everlasting Cup!

Seeking God’s Help

Today is Praise Thursday! We read two devotions today from Our Daily Bread. Our first one was called “Seeking God’s Help” by Amy Boucher Pye. God rescued His people from the invading armies, and He hears us when we cry out to Him in distress. Whatever your concern—whether a relationship issue or something threatening from the natural world—lift it to God in prayer. Nothing is too hard for Him. To read more click HERE. Our second devotion was called “In the Vine” also by Amy Boucher Pye. When we who believe in Jesus embrace the idea of being as close to Him as a branch is to a vine, our faith is strengthened and enriched. Click HERE to read more!

Q: When David wanted to fight Goliath, what did Saul try to give him?

A: His armor

Congratulations to Letha of Mount Vernon for answering that question correctly, she won a $5 gift card to Everlasting Cup!

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.

Q: What did Joseph do for the Pharaoh while he was in prison?

A: Interrupted dreams

Congratulations to Erika of Marengo for answering that question correctly, she won a $5 gift card to Everlasting Cup!

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.

Q: How many people boarded Noah’s Ark?

A: Eight

Congratulations to Pam of Fredericktown for answering that question correctly, she won a $5 gift card to Everlasting Cup!

He Knows Your Name!

For todays Praise Thursday we shared some inspiration from Our Daily Bread! One of our devotions was called “He Knows My Name”. Sometimes we feel unseen and unappreciated but be assured, God knows each of us by name. To read more click HERE. Our other devotional was called “Quarantined by Fear”. Sometimes all we need is to shift our focus on God to help us overcome our fears and anxieties. To read more click HERE.
