Jun 30, Debbie rated it liked it Shelves: christian-non-fiction. This is the second little "devotional" I've read by this author. Through storytelling she imparts Biblical truths and encouragement. I especially liked the chapter, Light for Each Other. Appropo to the book is the line from Leonard Cohen's Anthem: "There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.

When we are feeling down, we can find comfort in our faith. The Lord has proven time and time again that He is full of compassion, love and kindness. He wants to be there for us when we need Him the most. Even when we are the ones that caused pain or harm, God will offer us care.
We should be willing to praise Him for these blessings. Doing so will let us feel closer to Him, and also bring us even more comfort. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Some Christians have a hard time releasing full control to God, but when we do so a huge weight is lifted off of our shoulders. Choose to put God in every part of your life, and He will guide you to bigger and better things.
They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
While an athlete trains to win a small prize, Christians train their entire lives to one day get the everlasting prize of living in Heaven. God is not only our Father, He is also our teacher, guide and aid. He is the armor we put on each day when we face a world full of evil and wrongdoing. Our lives may hit bumps in it, but they are nothing compared to what God has already fought. He will be able to keep your head up and make you feel strong, powerful and able to overcome your problems.
He will give you the tools necessary to fight any demon you face. Just trust in Him. Our world today is full of darkness, sadness, and evil. Even if we try to live a perfect life, the reality is that we are going to come face to face with sin.
We are going to run into people that only are out to hurt us and take us away from God. They can feel comfort in knowing that God will always protect them against their enemies, and they will be delivered from the pain of this world. Be courageous!
Do not be afraid of them! For the Lord your God will be with you. He will neither fail you nor forsake you. We already know that God will deliver us from the evil of this world, but we can further be assured that God will never back down from His promise to protect us from evil while we are on earth. While we are faced with a world full of sin, we can be comforted that we are not doing so alone. We have nothing to be scared of, because God will give us the tools to feel strong and courageous against our enemies. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire, and set my feet on a hard, firm path and steadied me as I walked along.
He has given me a new song to sing, of praises to our God. Now many will hear of the glorious things He did for me, and stand in awe before the Lord, and put their trust in Him. Before you found God in your life, you may have felt alone and afraid. However when you accepted Him into your heart, you were able to feel the blessings of His love.
He was able to give you a strong foundation to walk on, and guide you on the next steps in your life. Praise be that God would do something so special for each of His children. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore. There will never be a time where you are truly alone, without Him presiding over you. Therefore we never truly have anything to fear. We are blessed to have a Father that cares so deeply about keeping us safe and comforted.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord. Being a servant of the Lord means we are shielded from the evil of society. No weapon or person will ever be able to tear us down, no matter how hard they try, because we are protected by our faith.
So even if someone is currently trying to hurt you, know that they cannot do unless you allow them. God is working towards fighting them off. Do not be dismayed. I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will uphold you with My victorious right hand.
We have heard this promise from God time and time again. He repeated Himself in the Bible several times for a reason.
He wanted to make it a point that His children knew and understood that He would always be there for them.
