A Resource: Devotionals

Since Sheena mentioned it earlier this week, I signed up to receive the devotionals from Girlfriends in God.  If you are interested, you can sign up by clicking here.  There are other types of devotionals available, too.

But those devotionals have been speaking to me.  About peace.  About letting go. 

God is impressing things on my life.  One of those things is that it's my responsibility to obey and do what I can.  More importantly, God is reminding me that we all have obligations to one another--even if we feel we've done nothing wrong.  There is responsibility in relationship.  Responding to an action through the same type of action doesn't breed peace, kindness or unity.

My time in grad school has been nothing if not useful.  It's reminded me that I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but that I know what's right.  I know what's helpful.  But, more importantly, I know a Jesus who hasn't given up on me (or anyone else for that matter).  So my prayer to Him is for usefulness...in all circumstances.  And my hope is that my prayer is still possible.

I like how you always seem to keep things in perspective.

Crystal,

I always enjoy reading and learning from your blog. I appreciate you speaking from your heart and sharing with us. I have been working through the workbook "A Heart Like His" from Beth Moore's Bible Study we did together. Everytime I repeat the workbooks, I learn more and it always reminds me of the good times from our Women's Bible Study Group. Aren't you proud of me? I finally figured out my password so I could post a comment! :-)
Thank you. Marla

Anonymous, I wish that were always the case. Like anyone else, I do better when I have time to think and engage brain ;) Thanks for what I consider a compliment, though.

Marla, I'm SO glad you can comment again :) I value your opinion and look forward to hearing from you.
