AND NOW...THE FIRST DEVOTION:

75 Candles

Have you taken an inventory of what’s important in your life? Birthdays are a great time to reflect and look forward. Imagine you were blowing out 75 candles on your birthday cake. What would you want to have accomplished by then?

Before Bill and I were married, I never would have imagined the Lord would use my husband and me so dramatically. God guided us to start Campus Crusade for Christ, an organization that has become a worldwide ministry with more than half a million workers.

Our goal from the beginning was to put God first in our lives and do all we planned for His honor and glory.

So, dear one, let me ask: Have you let God be the center of your life goals? Are you willing to let Him use you? Ask God today to take over every area of what you do. He will do a marvelous work with your life too.

Whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please him (2 Corinthians 5:9).

This I Believe

You can never go wrong putting
God first in everything.


My Thoughts:

I love everything about this book, from its size to what is contained inside! This small book has a short reading, a Bible verse and a "This I Believe" statement on the bottom of the page. The whole reading is short and takes about 5 minutes, but those 5 minutes gives much to think about.  It seems that I find just the pick-me-up I need at just the times I need them. One day I was feeling down because we've lost so many close family and friends these past few years. I opened up to "The True Comforter" and it was just what I needed.

This is a lovely book - about the size of a hand with a padded cover and a green ribbon bookmark. Scripture quotes are mostly from the New Living Translation with occasional use of other versions.
