Stillspeaking Daily Devotional

Recognized

Jennifer Garrison Brownell

For a weekend, it's fun to take on another persona, but being a Christian every single day is a whole other story – all that loving everyone and feeding the hungry and turning the other cheek can wear a person out. 


Riders

Quinn G. Caldwell

They had looked around at the state of the world, at how many people were living in poverty housing or no housing, at how many Elijahs were sleeping underfed beneath broom trees, and they had decided to do something about it.  Like Elijah, they had decided to head out into the wilderness and not stop until they met God.


Sinners

Emily C. Heath

And so, I say this freely: I'm a sinner. And so are you. And so are we all. Because none of us is perfect, and none of us always gets it right. 


Calling on God to be God

Anthony B. Robinson

Moses calls upon God to be God. An incredibly courageous thing to do. Do you and I have the chutzpah, and the faith, to call on God to be God for us?


A Wise and Discerning People

Talitha Arnold

As we gear up for the new school year, we would be smart to heed Moses' urgent command.


A Biblically Bad Hair Day

Michelle L. Torigian

Samson believed that his strength had left him.  His "bad hair day" strangled his confidence.


4.5.8.

Molly Baskette

I've learned a little trick to get God moving into my being at the right pace. It's called the 4.5.8 breath.


Customary-Present

Mary Luti

I don't know any corrupt people who became paragons of virtue overnight.  I do know lots of compromised people leading ethically-ambiguous lives in an ethically-bewildering world, able to do good, but unable to be pure. 


Every Time I Remember You

Ron Buford

When we remember people who have died, simple things remind us of them -- a smell, a song, a flower, the gathering of family and friends. And we remember them. . . . 


Implied Spiritualities and Sneaky Resumes

Donna Schaper

Have you ever noticed yourself sneak yourself into a conversation, sneakily?
