Finally Made Whole

Finally Made Whole

Today, we're sharing the testimony of Sister Missy Munson. This one is a little longer than normal, but it's worth it!

One afternoon in my home, I saw that my daughter, who was 13 at the time, appeared visibly shaken. I asked what was wrong, and she pointed into the kitchen proclaiming that a man was standing in the corner. I cautiously looked around the corner but saw nothing but my daughter insisted a man dressed in dark pants, work boots, and a green jacket was standing in the kitchen. In an effort to calm my daughter, I turned on the light and stepped into the empty kitchen. With tears running down her face, she said the man was reaching out to hug me. After looking through old photos, we realized that the man was my father who had passed away when my daughter was 2 years old.

God Works in Mysterious Ways

God Works in Mysterious Ways

Do you remember when Jesus told His disciples, "What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter" (John 13:7)? Do you remember what Jesus was doing at the time?

He was washing His disciples' feet. How strange for their leader to bow before them and perform a chore normally given to the lowest household servant. It must've been truly mysterious to the disciples at the time.

A Non-Conforming Transformer: Autobots, Roll Out!

A Non-Conforming Transformer: Autobots, Roll Out!

More and more, I seem to hear people justify their actions by "Well so-and-so does it" — or some variation of that. If I walked in the darkness of the world, that might be perfectly fine.

But I've found the way, the truth, and the life through Jesus Christ. I can't weigh my actions against someone else also living in the flesh, no matter how much of a saint they are. The standard upon which I should base my actions and decisions is Jesus Christ. He set the example.

It's an easy trap to fall into, though.

I Need Not Fear

I Need Not Fear

Today is our first fear-themed Miracle Monday, and we are hearing from Sister Enza Pusillo.

One night, as I was sleeping, something caused me to wake, and as I lifted my head from my pillow, I looked across the room and saw two very, very tall men standing on either side of the sliding glass door in my bedroom. They were dressed in dark suits and stood as if they were at attention or on duty. Not thinking anything of it, I put my head back down, saying to myself “Oh, the angels are here.”

Spread the Good Word: Psalm 30:5

Today's Good Word reminds us that, with God, there is always a new dawn after every long, difficult night. As the hymn says, "Through the night to a brighter tomorrow..."

Kids' Question of the Month – September

Written by Sister Vicki Ali and Sister Michelle Watson on Wednesday, 30 September 2015. Posted in Special Series Hits 2234

Kids' Question of the Month – September

When I was a kid, I could never understand how grown-ups could just sit around — for hours! — and just talk to each other … without even playing a game or pulling out a solitary toy. What strange creatures! And will I ever be like them someday?

That's why it always surprised me to learn that I had something in common with an adult. I remember admiring the older brothers who were artistically inclined — like me! — and the sisters who liked listening to "The Little Mermaid" soundtrack just as much as I did.

You Are Free. You Just Don't Know It

You Are Free. You Just Don't Know It

Today's blog comes all the way from Santiago, Chile, where our resident blogger Sister Alena Ricci has been studying for the past few months.

“You are free, you just don’t know it yet.” – "Redeeming Love," Francine Rivers

I can truly say that I love this city and these people. Both are truly a wonder to me. Today we had the opportunity to visit the oldest and biggest cathedral in Santiago, and it was awe-inspiring. It’s plated in gold and bronze everywhere and when we walked inside, there were people praying while tourists (me) walked around taking pictures of them talking to God.

She's the One

She's the One

Today's work-related Miracle Monday is from Sister Natalie Shawver. Make sure you read all the way to the end for the best part of the story!

Last year I felt it was time to find a new position within my company. I had struggled with my current role for a variety of reasons and knew something better was out there for me.

I made it a matter of prayer, having faith that God would pick the right job for me. Around Thanksgiving, two positions piqued my interest — one with our communications department and the other with our charity organization. I knew I would enjoy either position, but for whatever reason I was leaning towards the charity role.

Be Addicted to Your Calling

Written by Sister Natalie Shawver on Thursday, 24 September 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 2011

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

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?
