Devotions for Life

“Lonely, and You?”

“Behold an hour is coming, and has already come, for you to be scattered, each in his own home, and to leave Me alone, and yet, I am not alone, because the Father is with Me” (Jn. 16:32).

What is this life all about and why are we here for such a short time? It has become obvious since the questions asked were answered – “to die!” It is only through death that we will live again. Accepting the concept is difficult, but all will die, the good, bad, while those not in Christ die – forever!


Uncle Bob

“A good name is to be more desired than great wealth” (Proverbs 22:1a).

Recently, Robert P. passed on. I knew him as uncle Bob. He left a great example. He was a man of integrity, a man who cared about family and others, and a man who always had time for others. He will definitely be missed. He became my uncle when I married one of his nieces, who preceded him in death. I count myself blessed to have known and to have been influenced by him.


Our Comforting God

“The Father of mercies and God of all comfort; who comforts us in all our affliction (II Cor. 1:3b, 4).

Fanny J. Crosby, the author of many of our beautiful hymns, was not born blind. When she was an infant, a man claiming to be a doctor put hot poultices on her eyes. The resulting scarring left her unable to see. As an adult, she declared that God had given her a special “soul vision” that enabled her to put her faith into song. Her spiritual vision helped her write such wonderful hymns as “All the Way My Savior Leads Me.”
