Kicking Off the Valentine's Day Series: On Singleness

Kicking Off the Valentine's Day Series: On Singleness

As promised, we're tipping our hats to Valentine's Day with a series of relationship-oriented articles for singles and couples. God instituted marriage, and scripture tells us how to make it work; nonetheless, we still find it a very difficult terrain to navigate. We hope these articles bring you encouragement and point you to God's word.

We also want to make a small disclaimer. We don't want to imply with this series that people in relationships or marriages are more important than people who aren't. If this week's articles don't apply directly to you, we encourage you to glean what understanding you can from them. If you're single, don't skip the articles for marrieds. If you're married, don't skip the articles for singles. It's important that we learn about one another so we can better support each other. 

Without further ado, we bring you our first installment, written by Sister Natalie Pezzenti.


 

Every Adoption Is a Miracle of Love

Every Adoption Is a Miracle of Love

Today we're wrapping up our weeklong Miracle Monday extravaganza. We hope you've been encouraged by the things God has done for your brothers and sisters. If you're asking God for something, He is able! Just keep seeking, keep knocking, keep asking.

Today's testimony illustrates just that. Sister Denise Bodo shares her experience with adoption. Just like a traditional birth, an adoption is a miracle every time it happens.

Out of Harm's Way

We hope you enjoy reading this testimony of God's protection submitted by Sister Josie Jasmin.

Many years ago, we lived in a house that had a gas hot water heater in the kitchen. It had gone out, and I was going to re-light it so we could have hot water.

Finding Acceptance in Christ

Finding Acceptance in Christ

Brothers Sisters and Friends,

Many of you may or may not know me. My name is Brother Dan Hemmings, I'm 29 years old and I'm a Teacher in The Church of Jesus Christ (San Diego Branch). I've been unemployed for almost 8 months now, and the weight of this burden has finally started to weigh on me. However, with this burden I know the gift of God's glory and plan will be that much greater.

Divine Forgiveness

Written by Sister Vicki Ali on Wednesday, 22 January 2014. Posted in Devotional Hits 1708

Divine Forgiveness

A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh." (Ezekiel: 36:36)

In yesterday's blog post, we saw how this verse epitomizes what happened to a man's heart when he prayed for the ability to forgive a person who caused immeasurable pain in his life.

The Process of Forgiving

Written by Brother Joe Saeli on Tuesday, 21 January 2014. Posted in Devotional Hits 1669

The Process of Forgiving

Our Sunday school recently studied the concept of forgiveness, a vital act that is red-lettered in Matthew 6:12, "And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors" and in numerous other scriptures, such as Colossians 3:13, "Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye."

We quickly concluded that this concept of forgiveness is easier "read than done," so we attempted to develop strategies to fulfill this commandment. We discovered that forgiveness is not always like lightning and thunder but more often more like a work in progress.
