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 July 28th, 2017

2 Corinthians 1:4:  “[God of all comfort] who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.”

We all know someone who is suffering or worse off than ourselves.  Be the ear they desperately need and the prayer they won’t ask for.

Summer Devotional July 26th, 2017

Isaiah 35:4:  “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.”

Reminders we need to hear often as we often forget:

  1.  We have nothing to fear with God.
  2. God will come with vengeance.  Our job is to forgive.  God’s job is to punish those who do wrong against us.
  3. God will save us.  Now.  In the present moment when all is hopeless.  And in the future.  He is with us always.  We will be with Him always.

Matthew 21:22:  “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

Just a reminder God desires faith first.  Faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.  Faith in Him.  And faith in God’s will for your life.  Believe with all your heart in God.  Ask with all your heart for what He desires.  Ask for miracles.  Ask for big things.  Ask for little things.  Ask, ask, and keep asking.  God hears.  God answers.  He promises.  He never fails.
