    Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. —Psalm 37:4

     

    In a delightful compilation of children’s letters to God*, a simple and very honest prayer reads, “Dear God, thank you for the baby brother but what I prayed for was a puppy.”

     

    It’s fairly safe to assume that this little girl’s ...

  • IN THE CLOUDS

  • IN THE CLOUDS -  

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    In Streams in the Desert

    "If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth" (Eccles. 11:3). 


    Why, then, do we dread the clouds which now darken our sky? True, for a while they hide the sun, but the sun is not quenched; he will be out again before long. Meanwhile those black clouds are filled with rain; and the blacker they are, the more likel...

  • To Carry, To Be Carried, and To Carry On

  • I’ve always loved the story of the paralyzed man whose friends carried him to Jesus.

    They knew Jesus was in town, and they knew Jesus was the only chance for their friend to walk again. So they carried him to the house where Jesus was preaching, only to find that there were so many throngs of people inside and surrounding the house that they couldn’t get anywhere near their Healer.

    So they climb...

    Then the Lord said to Moses, "It will rain down bread from heaven for you.  The people are to go out each day and gather enough food for that day...” —Exodus 16:4

     

    Imagine traveling through the desert with thousands of people. It’s hot. It’s sticky. It’s sweaty. You’ve been held as a slave in Egypt for as long as y...

  • Beyond the Fence

  • Beyond the Fence -   

    “You’ve got to come see this,” my husband called to me from around the corner of the house one morning. I followed his voice and found him pointing at our front yard fence. A large section, newly installed, had been pushed in overnight. But before I could express my dismay, my eyes wandered beyond the fence…to see the 200-pound Axis deer that lay dead between the fen...

    Jesus answered, “I am the way and truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” —John 14:6

     

    Isn’t it amazing how sunflowers follow the sun? This phenomenon is a result of the sunflower being a phototropic plant. Meaning the sunflower follows the movement of the sun from east in the morning to we...

  • The Example of a Nursing Mother

    Written by Sandra Sheridan

    “But we proved to be gentle among you, as a nursing mother tenderly cares for her own children.” - 1 Thessalonians 2:7

    There are not many experiences that are sweeter than cradling a tiny baby in your arms and nursing her. This was one of my precious joys of motherhood, and a memory I will always keep. The bond that forms between mother a...

  • Looking Past the Now -  

    This devotional was written by Kelly McFadden

     

    Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations. He will not quarrel or cry out; no one will hear his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he leads justice...

  • GOD HAS CHOSEN ME -  

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN 

    In Streams in the Desert  

    "I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction" (Isa. 48:10).  


    Does not the Word come like a soft shower, assuaging the fury of the flame? Yes, is it not an asbestos armor, against which the heat has no power? Let the affliction come--God has chosen me. Poverty, thou mayest stride in at my door; but God is in the house alrea...

The Lord your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes, and in the desert. There you saw how the Lord your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until y...
