Oh, Give Thanks to the Lord!

Devotional 11.23.22

Dear Faith Family, Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His Name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!, (1 Chronicles 16:8). Go ahead. Read the rest of David's psalm in 1 Chronicles 16:8-36.

Basking in His Birdhouse

Devotional 11.16

Dear Faith Family, Remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world, (Ephesians 2:12).

It's A Walmart Thing

Devotional11.9.22

Dear Faith Family, Love is patient, (1 Corinthians 13:4). It happened again. I went. I found. I conquered. Where, you might ask? Why Walmart of course.

You don't even have to go into the store! B...

Anchored

Devotional10.19.22

Dear Faith Family, God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress, (Psalm 46:1, 11). It started out with a bang. Literally. When I arrived at a comfortable spot on the elm tree above the grown-up cutover, I could see down to the little opening at the edge of the woods. And what to my wanderin...

Dear Faith Family, But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons, (Galatians 4:4-5).

Waiting for Event to Begin

Devotional 9.28

Dear Faith Family, For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord, (1 Thessalonian...
