  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror.

Feb. 22, 2010 - Make a Great Day

By Doug Clay

Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote: “For Christians, the beginning of the day should not be burdened and haunted by the various kinds of concerns they face during the working day. The Lord stands above the new day, for God has made it … all restlessness, all impurity, all worry and anxiety flee before Him.

“Therefore, in the early hours of the day, may our many thoughts and our many idle words be silent, and may the first thought and the first word belong to the One to whom our whole life belongs.”

A chapel speaker once said, “If your devotional life is sleepy and tired — God is probably as tired of it as you are.”

OK, here’s my personal challenge, and I encourage you to join in with me:

1. I want to acknowledge my dependency on God right away in the morning.

2. I want to tell God my concerns of the day and ask Him to give me wisdom beyond my years and experience.

3. I want to invite God to spend the entire day with me.

“In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation” (Psalm 5:3, NIV).

I think this will help all of us to make a great day!
