Sua Presença

Carol Gonterman

Quando eu comecei a pedir ao Senhor o que Ele gostaria que eu escrevesse em uma devoção a Ele, I found myself humming the most beautiful melody. Several times during the last month or so I would hear this song with the words in my head. Mas, quando eu ia chegar a um determinado verso que eu iria esquecer as palavras.

Um par de vezes as senhoras eu rezo com tentaria recordar as palavras tão bem, mas não foram capazes de recuperá-los, assim teríamos apenas cantarolar aquela parte. Last week I asked my friend if she would try to find this song for me. She did, e simplesmente amamos! The name of this song is, Em Tua Presença, Oh Deus. Continue lendo

Palavras para falar e andar por

Ever wonder why words are so very exciting and important to us? God’s words that is!

“The Lord God has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He awakens me morning by morning, He awakens my ear to hear as the learned.” (Isaías 50:4)

As a young girl I remember writing letters to family and friends and was always encouraged by their responses. I would also write about my pets, nature and creative writing. I enjoyed making cards (even to this day at 65 years of age.) I enjoyed writing as it would encourage others or just let them know that I cared. Later I enjoyed crafting, drawing and continued writings. Continue lendo

Cubra sua família com Oração

Sharon Couchman

Ultimamente pensamentos me levaram de volta para os meus dias como uma mãe solteira criar quatro filhos. Cenas do passado inundaram volta como recordei os desafios que enfrentaram a minha família na preparação para cada ano escolar. Estas memórias são acionadas por conversas recentes sobre as necessidades de meus netos para o novo ano escolar que rapidamente se aproxima. Outras memórias apareceu de ver todos aqueles anúncios de volta às aulas.

Lembro-me de como os dias de verão chegou ao fim a emoção de estar fora da escola tinha o seu curso e os meus filhos, na verdade, queria voltar para a escola! Eles olharam para a frente para ter um novo professor, reunindo-se com velhos amigos, fazer novos, e compras de roupas e suprimentos necessários. Durante estes tempos medo tentaria segurar e me convencer de que eu não teria dinheiro suficiente até mesmo para o básico. Continue lendo

O que você está pensando?

Betty Dewhirst

For years I had no idea that wrong thinking could cause havoc in one’s life.

The enemy has deceived many into thinking that it doesn’t matter what you think as long as your actions are all right. The truth of the matter is that eventually your thoughts will become actions if you entertain them long enough.

Negative thinking keeps one from reaching his potential in life. Often parents make the mistake of saying words to their children that may scar the child for years to come. Those words are not easily forgotten and because of the very impressionable mind of a child much damage is done that may affect them all of their lives. Continue lendo

Experiencing God for Yourself

Clete Snellenberger

I love reading God’s Word, even out loud, and receiving new revelation from it. In John, capítulo 9, several things caught my attention. In verses 2 - 5, the question was asked Jesus about the blind man. Basically, the conversation went like this (paraphrased). “Who did sin, this man, or his parents?” Jesus answered: “Neither, that the works of God should be made manifest in him.”

As you read the account you discover that Jesus personally made clay, anointed the blind man’s eyes with the clay and said, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam.” This is faith in action! Verse 9 diz: “Some said this is he when they saw him. Others said, “He is like him, but He (the blind man) dito: “I am he!" Continue lendo
