White As Snow

White As Snow

Snow is not always appreciated by those of us in the northern climes. It can make life complicated, travel hazardous, and cause a lot of work. But when it falls slowly and provides a clean blanket of sparkling white, it can also be peaceful.

Snow reminds me of God’s love for us. Even though we sin daily and make a mess of things from time to time, God promises all our crimson sins will be white like new-fallen snow because of Jesus’ sacrificial love for us. Today is a good day to share that love with one another.

Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; (Isaiah 1:18b).

Christmas Cards as Prayer Prompts - Who Knew?

Christmas Cards as Prayer Prompts

- Who Knew?

One year I received a note from an LWML mentor and friend in April saying she had prayed for my family during her morning devotions. She went on to explain that at the beginning of the New Year she would take the Christmas cards they received and each day she selected one, prayed for the sender, and then penned a short note.

I felt so loved and encouraged … and impressed by the creative use of Christmas cards as prayer prompts! So, before you throw away those Christmas cards, or delete the email greetings, maybe you could say a prayer and send a “reply.”

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, … (Philippians 1:3-7a).

The Promise in God's Time

The Promise in God's Time

Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night (Psalm 90:1-2, 4).

The words of Psalm 90 come to mind as the old year passes and the new year begins. The Lord is our dwelling place yesterday, today, and forever – in all generations. His love for us in Christ Jesus never passes away. His promises never change or waver – even when we feel we’ve had either a “good” or a “bad” year.

God’s love, joy, forgiveness, righteousness, peace, and hope for eternal life are ours through the merits of our Savior Jesus throughout our days and years to come. We pray with the Psalmist in Psalm 90:14, 17: Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us.

Challenge: Pray the words of Psalm 90 as you begin or end a new day this week.

Always Say a Prayer: ASAP

Always Say a Prayer: ASAP

God is good! All the time! He supplies our every need — even taking care of us before we know what we need. Indeed, He is an amazing God! Yet, how do we connect with God?

Consider the acronym “ASAP.” We usually associate ASAP with work to be done and deadlines to meet. Four letters can make us feel there’s no time to spare! We hurry and scurry; we might even be in the midst of a family crisis or work dilemma, with little time to meet the deadline.

However, even when our worries and needs seem to be more than we can bear, we can remember ASAP … Always Say A Prayer. It’s better to slow down, take a breather, and ASAP … Always Say A Prayer.

God knows how stressful life can be. He wants to ease our cares. He will respond to all our needs and He will answer us ASAP … Always Say A Prayer.
