This week's devotion offers the power of two words and a little rejoicing to turn off ruminating thoughts. What can you identify in your life today to rejoice about in the Lord?
Sometimes the drudges of family life are the very things God uses to remind us He is caring for our hearts, minds, bodies, and spirits.
God designed our body for movement. How can we increase our physical movement and exercise in creative ways to fit into all our commitments?
Taking on a challenge that increases our physical health can impact the rest of our well-being.
What can quiet an anxious and wakeful mind during the night hours? God, our faithful Creator and Redeemer, offers a surprising gift in the middle of the night.
Working out finances together is part of the process and the complement of marriage, even when it feels difficult or like the last thing you’d rather be doing. Where is God’s faithfulness in our finances?
Where is God in our lives when He is hard to see? What is God up to today in your life?
How do we respond to criticism in our various roles and vocations within the church? What encouragement does God have for us as we serve?
Some days we will feel unqualified, but God seems to have a knack for using those with weakness.
When our prayers turn to groanings, where do we go to find the hope of Jesus?
What thoughts are in your head today? What big and little things are you thinking about? What freedom has God given us to “think about thinking”?
What gift does God offer each of us, even the pastor and church worker, in the Fifth Petition of the Lord’s Prayer?
Physical wellness can affect every aspect of your ministry, and it doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive of other personal wellnesses.
Vocations rarely get the appreciation they deserve. You rarely get the appreciation — or even attention—that you need. What Good News does God have for you today, amidst your many vocations and duties?
