Posted on August 04 2016

Every Sunday we post a devotion to our social media page that comes from one of these 4 sources! She Reads Truth,  Love God Greatly,  Pktfuel  + First5.  These devotions have played a huge role in growing our faith and have held us accountable to always finding time to seek the Lord.  These apps are so easily accessible that no matter what stage of life you are in.. student, mama of littles, mama of big kids, career woman, etc.. These are for you!   I have found that starting my day pulling these up on my phone or computer before I get ready for work has worked really well in staying consistent, they are short yet gospel filled + inspiring.  Find time to give to the Lord each day...He will bless you!    It can be any time of day,  find what works for you and stick with it.  Take care of the precious time that is only you + God.  { "The unfolding of your words give light; It gives understanding to the simple." Psalm 119:130 }  Below we have listed some of our favorite excerpts from these pages, we hope it speaks to your heart today! 

She Reads Truth:

"The journey to spiritual maturity involves trial and struggle. This passage from James reminds us to persevere, and to ask God for wisdom as we navigate difficult seasons. He is faithful to give it.

Take this day as an opportunity to catch up on your reading, pray, and rest in the presence of the Lord. Pray this Scripture for a specific person in your life and for yourself.

Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials,
knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.
But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing.
Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to all generously and without criticizing, and it will be given to him.
-James 1:2-5"

 

Love God Greatly:

"Remember, the best stories aren’t the perfect ones. Listen, no one can relate with those anyway. The best stories are centered on the hope and gratitude we live out in the midst of our imperfect stories, because all of the glory is shifted away from us and back onto the real hero of our story… our perfect Savior.
If we actually lived out this kind of consistent, genuine gratitude in the middle of our imperfect mess… it might just go viral.
A woman who is confident and content in who she is in Christ overflows with gratitude even in the midst of her less than perfect story, allowing God’s beautiful story of redemption to continue to shine through her to the next generation."

 

Pktfuel/DEVO:

"If you need restoring, (and unless you’ve just come back from a month long exotic holiday you probably do need some restoring and reviving) try a change of scenery. When you drive past that lookout spot at the top of the lake on the way home from work, pull over, take 5 minutes, behold the glory of God in his creation. Or if you’re at the park with the kids take your shoes off and press your naked feet into the earth, God breathed into it to create humanity. Or get up early (this might take some practice… haha), go for a walk and watch the sunrise in all its splendour and warmth, kissing the world with kindness…

He offers you a resting place, tracks of peace and brooks of bliss through it all."

 

First5: 

"Ordinary. No special training. These words describe how I felt about myself for many years. I couldn’t imagine ever doing anything that really mattered because I didn’t feel like I really mattered. Maybe you can relate.
Maybe you know what it’s like to stand by and watch others do kingdom work. They use their gift of teaching each week in your small group. Rain or shine he is there every Sunday to greet you with a smile and open the church door. The gift baskets she makes for new families in the community are the perfect touch, and show her gifts of creativity and hospitality.
How do they do that? How do they know to serve in the right place?
They said yes. These and the countless others who serve God in our churches, communities, and places of service simply said yes. Some may have formal training but odds are, most don’t.
You were created for a good work that God prepared just for you. Good is defined as agreeable, happy, and distinguished. Ephesians 2:10 gives this assurance, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
