March – Recharge—in the Night Watches

by Sally Valleskey
 
How often don’t we plug in devices overnight—phones, batteries, e-readers, flashlights, cleaning tools, toothbrushes—so they’re recharged and ready to go in the morning when we are?  God gives us sleep so our bodies can do the same. What a blessing to be plugged in, to be recharged, with a good night’s rest. Sometimes, though, unexpected challenges in life weigh heavy on our hearts and minds, and cause us to miss that benefit.  Somehow the plug comes out.  In this devotion, we’d like to see how to use this “unplugged” time, to recharge. Scripture gives us insights through the writings of the psalmist, David. David shares his earnest prayer of praise and confession in the form of Psalm 63. We look at select verses:

My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods, with singing lips my mouth will praise you. On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me. (vs. 5-8)

Do you have a cell phone or other devices that are powered by a rechargeable battery?  Those batteries need to be plugged into a power source on a regular basis.  If they are not thus recharged, they are useless, dead.

September – I Don’t Do Guilt

by Rhoda Wolle

I have a former colleague and mentor who often tells me, “I don’t do guilt.” I was a bit perplexed by this the first few times he said it, so one day I asked him to expound. He replied, “Jesus paid too big of a price for me to walk around feeling guilty.”
