  • GOD IN EVERYTHING -  

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    "It is the Lord: let him do what seemeth him good". -1 Sam. 3:18


    See God in everything, and God will calm and color all that thou dost see!"

    Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. —Psalm 82:3

     

    Driving through Lagos, Nigeria—one of the largest cities in the world—was quite an adventure. Driving through the traffic of the busy roads was like walking through a swap meet. Hundreds of people stationed themse...

    “Since I gave Pharaoh your message, he has been even more brutal to your people. You have not even begun to rescue them!" "Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh," the LORD told Moses.

  • Steady Yourself in God

  • "Steady Yourself In God" 

    “You can do it, Shellie. Take a deep breath.” Right. That was easy for her to say, I thought to myself. She was practically a grown-up for goodness' sakes. I was eight, maybe nine. My older sister, Cyndie, was twelve and she was standing on the ground with her hands propped on her hips, looking up at me and encouraging me to jump from the top of Papa’s equipment shed. ...

  • Muscle Imbalance

  • Muscle Imbalance -  

    This devotional was written by Leslie Snyder

     

    What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds?  Can such faith save him?  Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food.  If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?  In the same way...

    Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. —Psalm 37:4

     

    In a delightful compilation of children’s letters to God*, a simple and very honest prayer reads, “Dear God, thank you for the baby brother but what I prayed for was a puppy.”

     

    It’s fairly safe to assume that this little girl’s ...

  • IN THE CLOUDS

  • IN THE CLOUDS -  

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    In Streams in the Desert

    "If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth" (Eccles. 11:3). 


    Why, then, do we dread the clouds which now darken our sky? True, for a while they hide the sun, but the sun is not quenched; he will be out again before long. Meanwhile those black clouds are filled with rain; and the blacker they are, the more likel...

  • To Carry, To Be Carried, and To Carry On

  • I’ve always loved the story of the paralyzed man whose friends carried him to Jesus.

    They knew Jesus was in town, and they knew Jesus was the only chance for their friend to walk again. So they carried him to the house where Jesus was preaching, only to find that there were so many throngs of people inside and surrounding the house that they couldn’t get anywhere near their Healer.

    So they climb...
