Summer Devotionals

Hey all!

I was thinking what I could do to stay in the Word during the summer and devotionals came to mind.  But simple devotionals.  Something to keep those of us who struggle without accountability accountable.  And blogging here with you all will help me (and I pray you all too) immensely.

So three times a week (Mon/Wed/Fri baring vacations) I’ll post one Bible verse and a small commentary.  My goal is to keep it short, simple, and pithy.  Not to be overwhelming during the summer when we’re all going in a dozen different directions in one day.  But just a brief pause to contemplate Him and what He’s doing in our lives.  I hope you find this helpful and feedback would be immensely appreciated.

So here’s the first one:

Psalm 30:5:

“Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”

Difficulties don’t last; they are transitory.  My grandmother always used to say in 6 months you’re problems today will be gone, most likely replaced with something else.  So quit worrying, give your sorrows, pain, and trouble up to Him and let it go.

  1. Love the idea,devotional. A special thanks for sharing your gift. Y all will bless,as with us with your blog

  2. Thank you got your Blog.. I really enjoy it. Great idea on the short summer versions. We all are going in a hundred directions at the same time and it is too easy to lose focus on what is truly important. Have a wonderful summer.
    God Bless you and your family’s

  3. This is timely for me as my husband has lost 40 pounds (not trying) since December, 16. His arthritis Dr. told him to get a colonoscopy and upper GI ASAP. That has been a month ago and we are still waiting for the approval from his heart Dr. I had a breakdown last Saturday and cried my heart out for him as the Dr.s don’t seem to be in a hurry to do anything. I did cry a lot that night and I did feel better on Sunday. The verse is so true and I needed this one.
    Thanks for your devotion to our Lord and Savior.

  10. Thank you for thinking of this way to stay in the Word, at least somewhat, for someone like me she has little discipline to do it alone. Maybe this will inspire me to do even more.

  11. I love the idea of A Summer Devotional…..let’s do it. I would like to comment about answering personal questions out loud in discussion group. I have been in BSF for 20 years. At first I hated personal questions. I have learned that my vulnerability in answering personal questions is a gift I can give to others. Ladies have thanked me for putting words to personal questions that helped them and in some cases “normalized” their own feelings. So think about vulnerability as a Gift and share how you personally are growing in your faith.

  12. Thank you for this. I need to be reminded of God’s grace in all areas of my day and life. I look forward to more from you.

  13. Thank you, My Dear. That is a wonderful idea. This a favorite Vera of mine. Thank you also for your faithfulness in sending the BSF lessons. Have a wonderful summer.
    LOVE, Evelyn

  14. I am always looking for commentaries. Does anyone know any good ones besides Spurgeon?
    Also can get Guzik on line.

    Great idea. Thank you.


  15. I really like your idea! One small suggestion (request)! Could you add a link to the Bible verse so that by simply touching the verse/link we will be taken to actual bible verse?

  16. Thank for keeping us connected over the summer. Love the wise words from your Grandmother. There have been tears this weekend as I watched my youngest Graduate from college, then moved her 1000 miles away to live. She sang “God is so good” at worship Sunday and he is, she is in his hands now. Bless you all this summer.

  17. Thank you for continuing your blog during the summer. What a blessing it will be to receive your devotional 3 times a week. Have a blesse day

  18. Praise the Lord! Great idea in keeping connected this summer. Love your blog = blessings to you!
    So true – your gramma was a smart cookie

  19. This is a great idea, and will definitely help you as well as others who read it. Yes your grandmother was wise and what a blessing for you in your young life. I hope that I can be that in the lives of my grandchildren as well. Thank you for your posts, they have been so helpful to me.

  20. I’m 74 and new to anyone’s blog! After completing the lesson and reading your blog helps with understanding… (I do not change my answer honest) You are an inspiration and just wanted to thank you for sharing Truth and keeping me connected… It can be a dry summer if I’m not careful.
