Suffering for Righteousness' Sake

Suffering for Righteousness' Sake

How many times have I suffered because of my own bad decisions?

Plenty, that's how many times.

I agonize over an upcoming apology because I spoke rash words and hurt someone's feelings. I toss sleeplessly in bed because I watched a movie that troubled me. I squeeze out a few tears when my jeans don't fit because I haven't exercised. I go home from church empty because I came with a bad attitude.

Who Helped You?

Who Helped You?

In our lives we have experiences of people who took the time to make us see Christ in them, to make us feel loved, to make us feel special. Below is an experience that I want to share of how a Brother of The Church simply gave his time (and in my mind), allowed us to dig our young feet into the Gospel.

Hearing God's Voice

Hearing God's Voice

Today is the first day of "anything goes" Miracle Mondays. There is no theme for the month of April, so please send us all of those testimonies you've been waiting and wanting to share. No miracle is too small or too grand. We love to hear how God is alive and at work in your life. Submit your story here.

This occurred quite a few years ago, back when I was young and somewhat reckless (unlike today when I'm no longer quite so young).

Songs in Translation

A while back, I was asked to prepare a fun activity for the women of the Pacific Region Ladies' Circle to do at our recent retreat. I don't know how this crazy idea came to me, but I thought I'd share it with you all.

Impossible

Impossible

As children, we're told stories of things God has done that blows our minds. We've been told stories of Him sending ten plagues to Egypt, or even the fact that He created:
            Every.
                             Single.
                                                Star.

Take a Page From My Book

Take a Page From My Book

Just like the Song of Zion lyrics, "Not knowing how to go out or come in, Lord," I fret quite a bit. I ponder. I hesitate. I even "worry o'er the future." On those days when I wish I could have a face-to-face conversation with God about my worries, He reminds me that every answer to any question I have can be found in the pages of the word of God.

Let's take a look at His words of wisdom...

In the Shade of Trees of Righteousness

Written by Sister Michelle Watson on Thursday, 27 March 2014. Posted in Devotional Hits 1310

In the Shade of Trees of Righteousness

I often hear people say, "I wasn't raised in this Church..." or "I wasn't raised to have faith in Jesus Christ..." and then they proceed to say something like "...but I'm so thankful that I'm here" or "...I'm so thankful that He found me."

I, myself, was raised in The Church and taught to have faith in God, so I don't really know what life would be like without it. I've asked myself, "Do I fully realize what I have? Or do I take it for granted?"

Everyone Needs a Good Cry

Written by Sister Christina Miller on Wednesday, 26 March 2014. Posted in Devotional Hits 2663

Everyone Needs a Good Cry

We've all heard the phrase, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Well, even the most optimistic person gets tired of lemonade, and sometimes lemonade does get old and sour.

One for the Dogs

One for the Dogs

My husband and I adopted a dog named Milo from an animal shelter. The shelter was not helpful in providing us with any information about him, other than he was house broken and wasn't a fan of cats.

Let It Burn

Let It Burn

Many of you (especially those of you who have kids in your life) are familiar with the Academy Award-winning and much-played (and parodied) song "Let It Go" from Disney's "Frozen." Well, as you'll read in today's Miracle Monday, Sister Flo Benyola recently found herself in the interesting position of saying, "Let it burn."

Prayers Big and Small, God Hears Them All

Written by Brother Rich on Thursday, 20 March 2014. Posted in Devotional Hits 1318

Prayers Big and Small, God Hears Them All

God always answers prayer. No matter what is prayed for — a healing, help with something, blessings on others — there is always an answer. It doesn't matter the size of the situation. He'll always take care of us. Two things recently happened in my life where prayers were answered almost immediately. One could be considered a pretty serious issue, while the other was a small thing.
