Be Addicted to Your Calling

Written by Sister Natalie Shawver on Thursday, 24 September 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 1976

Be Addicted to Your Calling

Each summer at my office we have the opportunity to attend educational sessions about our professional development. This year, I decided to attend one entitled “Gen Y: Making Your Way as a Millennial.” The speaker had been with our company for more than a decade and shared his experience climbing the corporate ladder to us 20-30somethings.

As I was listening to him speak, I was struck by one specific comment he made: “Be addicted to your calling.” Although he was speaking of our natural calling (albeit teacher, nurse or writer — like me), I felt as if the Lord was speaking right to me in that class, and I jotted it down in my notebook immediately (future GospelBlog post perhaps?).

Prompted to Pray

Written by Sister Stefanie on Wednesday, 23 September 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 1875

Prompted to Pray

Have you ever been sitting in church during the laying on of hands portion of the meeting, and someone from the ministry specifically calls you out, saying that he feels a prompting to anoint you?

Maybe you made a comment about going through something during testimony that he picked up on, or maybe he knows about a situation you are going through, or maybe God simply put it on his heart to pray for you.

Thank God for Open Doors

Thank God for Open Doors

If you have trouble getting along with your coworkers, then today's testimonies are for you! Yes, we're bringing you more Miracle Mondays on Tuesday, and we hope they are a blessing.

Testimony of Sister Cindy Bright

God has blessed me many times with jobs, but, looking back, I wish I would've been more patient, giving a problem to God instead of just leaving a job. On one occasion, I did just that.

Plays Nice With Others

Plays Nice With Others

For today's Miracle Monday, we're sharing two stories of how God miraculously provided jobs for two sisters. Enjoy!

Testimony of Sister Paula Hemmings

I was fortunate to be a stay at home mom when my children were young, but I felt I had too much time on my hands when my youngest started kindergarten. I decided I wanted to work but wasn't going to take a job unless I had hours that coincided with school beginning and ending. I also wanted all school holidays off, including summer vacation.

Easy, right?

Spread the Good Word: Mosiah 2:17 (Plus Trivia Answers!)

Today's Good Word reminds us that when we humble ourselves in service to one another we're not only reflecting the godly example of Jesus Christ when He walked the earth — we're actually serving God himself by serving His creation. May God bless you and inspire you with ways to serve.

I Can Feel It Coming In the Air..

Written by Brother Andrew DiNardo on Wednesday, 16 September 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 2341

I Can Feel It Coming In the Air..

urgent [ur-juh nt]
1. compelling or requiring immediate action or attention; imperative; pressing
2. insistent or earnest in solicitation; importunate, as a person
3. expressed with insistence, as requests or appeals

In the wake of recent events, I can't help but feel a greater sense of urgency. The church's Commission and Great Commission should be more present than ever in our minds. I've been called — we've all been called — from the beginning of time to take this gospel to the whole world and the Seed of Joseph. There are people dying to know Jesus, that He's the only peg that will fit into the gaping hole in their hearts.

A Woman's Issue

Written by Sister Alena X. Ricci on Tuesday, 15 September 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 2232

A Woman's Issue

One of my favorite legacies in the scriptures is the woman with the issue of blood. And although I know that I’ve talked about her before, I feel it appropriate to visit her again (Mark 5:25-34).

I want to set the scene: imagine Disney World in the middle of July — overcrowded, hot and humid, and everyone is incredibly pushy. People are surrounding Jesus, and there is a circle of people around Him that seems miles wide. Hands are everywhere — on His cloak, on His feet, on His hair — all trying to get near the man rumored to heal with a touch or a look.

All Mixer-ed Up

All Mixer-ed Up

This month, all the Miracle Mondays are testimonies from the workplace. Today's job-related miracle is from Sister Kathie Perkins.

As part of my job as an elementary school music teacher, I was responsible for presenting programs involving hundreds of kids to a very large audience. The program always required the use of some type of PA system.

Over the years, the technology at our school advanced to the point where I had less and less control over the system, and eventually the media specialist had to set up all the microphones and speakers during the daytime for me so that, at the appointed time for the evening program, I could just turn the system on and everything would work.

At least, that was the plan.

Spread the Good Word: Hebrews 3:14

Written by GospelBlog on Friday, 11 September 2015. Posted in The Good Word Hits 2265

Spread the Good Word: Hebrews 3:14

Today's Good Word reminds us to hold firm to the gospel even when the going gets tough — an appropos message on the anniversary of 9/11. After the terrorist attack, churches were filled with people seeking answers and comfort. A few months later, the pews weren't quite as packed. We are called to stay true to God, follow His teachings, and rest our hearts in Him every day, not just in emergencies.

We pray God blesses you and strengthens you to remain steadfast each and every step of the way as you march onward!

Miracles of Jesus Quiz

Miracles of Jesus Quiz

During Jesus' ministry on earth, He showed the people that He was God incarnate. One of the ways He proved this was by performing many miracles. These healings and wonders defied the laws of nature and couldn't be explained away.

How well do you know the miracles that Christ performed? Here's a little quiz that we hope gets you to open your Bible if you haven't already today. Have fun!

Spiritual Passwords

Written by Sister Donna Bogle on Wednesday, 09 September 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 3053

Spiritual Passwords

Many of us often need to change our passwords for various accounts. Doing this frequently or for multiple accounts can be a challenge and nuisance when logging in continuously throughout the day. In my case, my work password must contain eight characters, at least one capital letter, and one number. Even though one of my favorite hymns is “Remind Me, Dear Lord,” I often forget which one I am using.

But recently, I was inspired to take a different approach to creating passwords.

How can I make choosing and using a password easier and joyful?

Have a Heart in Your Prayer

Have a Heart in Your Prayer

My husband, Michael, had been ordained an elder for approximately a year when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. At about 3 a.m. one Saturday night, I began having severe pain and woke Michael to anoint me.

Prayers and Promotions

Today is our first career-related Miracle Monday! Enjoy this testimony from Brother Brandon Coppa's workplace.

At the end of 2008, I was out of work and searching for a job. I was prayerful about the situation but had a lot of difficulty even getting an interview.
