What to Expect This Summer…

Hey all!

BSF is over and for many of us that means the accumulation of dust on our Bibles begins!

Hence, I’ve been brainstorming what I can do to keep you and me in the Word (short of a full-blown Bible study as I need a break too!).

Here’s what to expect:

I will continue my devotionals on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays.  Like last year, these will be short and to the point, meant to be read and digested in a couple of minutes, leaving time for personal prayer and application on your life and circumstances.

My poetry contributor extraordinare, Lissette Trahan, has agreed to share short prayers with us that she has collected over many, many years.  These will appear on Tuesday and Thursday.  For those of you who struggle to know what to pray (I know I do!), I am praying these will give you a starting point!

Saturday will continue to be inspiring quotes on my heart at the moment.

Prayer requests will be on hiatus until the Fall but if you have something, please email it to me (atozmom.wordpress@gmail.com).  If I get enough response, I will post these once a month or so depending on volume.

Book reviews will appear as I get them done and when I find those worthy of recommending.

Finally, I am asking that you please pray about donating to my blog (the donation button is in the sidebar to the right).  I am only working part-time and would like to continue to do so in order to devote time to this forum, which I feel is an important endeavor and calling, and my other writings.  If you’ve been helped this year by my studies and if you’re led to give and are able, please consider doing so.  I would be eternally grateful.  If not, no worries!  I still love you all!!!

God bless, and I hope you have a fun, warm, and God-led summer!

Summer Devotional August 30th, 2017

Psalm 43:1:  “Vindicate me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation; rescue me from deceitful and wicked men.”

Playing off of Monday’s devotional, do the right thing and God will vindicate you and defend you and rescue you from whatever you face.  Faith.  Belief.  Reliance.  Prayer.  All your weapons against Darkness.

Summer Devotional August 2nd, 2017

1 Corinthians 13:4-8:  “Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails.”

I know most of you know this one, but it’s the apex of God and who He is.  We need reminded of this daily.  Love (God is love) never fails.  Love (God) is patient and kind.  Love (God) is not easily angered.  Love (God) perseveres.

With God, we can do anything, be anything, achieve anything.  His plans are perfect and all we need to do is trust.

This is a beautiful song about love and God and this video has some cool quotes from famous people.  Enjoy!
