I Can Feel It Coming In the Air..

Written by Brother Andrew DiNardo on Wednesday, 16 September 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 2372

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 2269

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

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!

Spiritual Passwords

Written by Sister Donna Bogle on Wednesday, 09 September 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 3163

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.

God's Always There for His Children

Written by Sister Karen Watford on Thursday, 03 September 2015. Posted in Testimonies Hits 2112

God's Always There for His Children

Today, we've got a personal testimony from Sister Karen Watford. She tells about a time in her life when God provided comfort in a moment of deep sadness.

Sometimes in life, many tribulations come all at once. Two years ago, this happened to me.

For several years, I'd needed a knee replacement but was afraid, so I kept postponing it. Finally, I had to accept the surgery, and, thank God, it went very well.

For about a year prior to this, my husband, Vaughn, had tremors, migraines, and vertigo. After seeing many doctors, we were left still searching for solutions. We had to put his medical needs on hold during my surgery, but, when my doctors said I could drive again five weeks after the operation, we continued with our search for answers to his health issues.

A Fasting and Prayer Blessing

Written by Brother Rich Nath on Wednesday, 02 September 2015. Posted in Testimonies Hits 2727

A Fasting and Prayer Blessing

At the beginning of April, the apostles asked The Church to fast and pray for the work in Oaxaca, Mexico. The work was beginning to bear fruit, and some opposition had started to creep in. The date for the fast was April 7, a Tuesday.

As I read the request, part of me was discouraged. I wanted to fast and pray for this situation and be united with my brothers and sisters; however, I've struggled with the physical part of fasting for a while and started to think I wouldn't be able to do it. So I asked for God's help, and He provided.

The Value of a Solid Foundation

Written by Brother Frank Natoli on Tuesday, 01 September 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 2630

The Value of a Solid Foundation

Did you know that in 1173 A.D., construction of a marble and stone bell tower began that would take 199 years to complete?

Did you know that by 1178, the tower began to sink on one side after construction had progressed to the second floor? This happened due to a mere 10-foot deep foundation set in weak, unstable, sandy soil.

In 1272, construction resumed with a new architect. In an effort to compensate for the lean, the engineers built upper floors with one side taller than the other. (Nice try, but it didn't work.) By 1372, the remaining floors were completed, and a bell chamber was added to complete the eighth floor — topping off the famous Tower of Pisa.

No Bones About It

No Bones About It

Today's Miracle Monday was submitted by Brother Jordan Champine for May's theme on anointing with oil. We hope you feel as blessed as we did when we got to the end and read a 7-year-old boy's simple words — the only logical conclusion to an undeniable miracle like this one.

When I was a young boy, around 7 years old, I went out to eat at a restaurant with my family as we tended to do on Friday nights. My parents had just found the Gospel a few years prior, so we took extra time and pride in joining hands and saying our dinner prayers in our booth. Little did we know what would soon follow.

Spread the Good Word: 2 Cor. 4:16

Spread the Good Word: 2 Cor. 4:16

Today's Good Word reminds us that we're going to get a few wrinkles, a few scars, a few aches and pains as life progresses — but, with God's Spirit continually growing inside, our hearts and souls can become more energetic, more youthful, more fresh and vibrant with each passing day.
