My Divine Devotions: Christmas memories are in God’s hands

December 24, 2010
Job 12:10 For the life of every living thing is in his hand, and the breath of every human being.

The Divine Light of Christ opens up reservoirs of thankfulness and joy to those who accept the restoration and salvation that is offered by God. Christmas lives in the heart of those who realize that the Hand of God has shaped their existence. But it isn’t until we remove the dark lenses that permeate our pre-Christ life that we recognize his divine touch.

How about those childhood Christmases when your family was all together? What about those Christmases when grandma did all the cooking and you just showed up? What about those Christmases when extended family and friends arrived unannounced and there was a place at the table? What about those Christmases when your dad arrived late, but he arrived with the biggest and best Christmas presents?

Remember the hand of God in your life and thank him for your past, your present and your future. He thought about your memories when he sent Jesus Christ.

To God be the glory!

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…

Moments with God: When all you can do is cry. Luke 7:36-40

July 7, 2013 Remember the story of the woman who poured oil over the feet of Jesus, wept and kissed him? Luke 7:36-40 The Voice
 Once a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to be a guest for a meal. Picture this: Just as Jesus enters the man’s home and takes His place at the table, a woman from the city—notorious as a woman of ill repute—follows Him in. She has heard that Jesus will be at the Pharisee’s home, so she comes in and approaches Him, carrying an alabaster flask of perfumed oil. Then she begins to cry, she kneels down so her tears fall on Jesus’ feet, and she starts wiping His feet with her own hair. Then she actually kisses His feet, and she pours the perfumed oil on them.
That's how I felt.  Yesterday I had a memorable “point in time.”  My ear tuned to a melody:  “The King of Heaven’s Armies is right here by my side. “   Tears trickled down my cheeks unexpectedly. The Lord knows my real heart (and your real heart, too).  There’s no hiding. In that perfectly overwhelming moment i…
