    That is awesome Sometimes we are so distracted that we miss these valuable moments that God speaks to us. I am a routine person myself. If i am busy or late, i want to put things off to the next day - even reading my Bible. I am always reading now. Anytime I have a free minute I am pulling Logos up on my phone. Thank you for sharing.

    Praise God! I am glad that God could use it. Very true, others may not know our name or know us. God our father knows our name and loves us and that will always be true! I try to write what God calls me to write and then hope that He uses them!

    This really made me think about something - thank you! My name is Chris, but for 3 years it was 414734 because I belonged to the state of TN. I had to memorize that number because when they would call me they did not call me Chris. I had lost all of my rights and I still cannot vote or own a firearm. The wonderful thing is that through that horrible time, God still knew my name Thank you for your devotionals - I enjoy reading them. Blessings

    It's my understanding that God spoke in these certain ways to teach us, e.g. He knew where Adam was when He asked, "where are you," and what have you done." Though I know we will differ on this issue, I want to add that God can say to you what He would do if you do this or that, but He already knows what you will do concerning this or that, and what He is going to do concerning this or that, regardless of what He says and how He says it. Of course, it's okay that we differ here in our understanding, because it's not like it's essential doctrine (e.g. salvation is faith in Christ). God bless Friend in Christ!

    "We have to see God in everything." Yes! I agree. Some may think I see him too much, but I don't care. Even the bunny hopping across my lawn is God's way of saying "Hi" to me. I like your story. You may enjoy a kind of similar walking story where I talked to a woman on the side of the road - it's a bit crazy, but also joyful.

    Hello writer. Your words are most encouraging but of little signifiance. You speak as one who awaits the Holy Spirit, not believing he will come. From your dialogue you spend your days hoping and writing encourgagement for others like yourself. You do well. But you are the seeker not a finder. You are a hoper not a believer. You are under works. Your works are promises you believe in, that may bring suceess for others and lead them to salvation despite your own hopes? What can I say from my experience and walk with God unto you. The hope and promise you seemingly believe in will equate to freedom. What you must do is believe he exist. Tell him openly and boldly... I cant believe this unless you, Jehovah God reveal your existeance. My blessing to you and your house, is this petition, and dont let go, for we have nothing to lose and everthing to gain, say it in your personal closet. Standfirm and dont let go1

    Yes, it is only via the Word of God--through the Spirit of God--that one is reborn, redeemed, saved. Thus it stands to reason that it's in constant learning of the Word of God that provides to the believer what and how to "walk in the Spirit," which walk is not in the life of the Spirit but the "life" of the Lord Jesus (Col 3:4), via the power of the Spirit; and the primary evidence to me is demonstrating what God works in us the most, which is a love to all in the manner Jesus has loved us (Jhn 13:34; 15:12). I believe all who are reborn will eventually be lead by God to sufficiently occupy themselves in His Word (esp. the Epistles), it being the sole source of direction of His Spirit; and I find that an all important thing to remember is love first in all things because this is the end purpose of the "Word of Truth." God's blessings to your Family, and God be blessed!

    Please pardon me, I was going through what I just wrote, only to find out each lines were not symmetrical even though I edited it. I don't know why this happen at times. I'll try harder next time.

    I'm sorry you're having trouble. I'm not sure what to tell you. See if you can copy and paste it. Maybe that will help.

    Sorry it was my mistake for putting it this way " the Lord said, " and thank you for pointing it out. It was never literally written in the scripture that cleanliness is next to godliness. However the Lord has always emphasized on being clean, or being washed or being in order in His scripture. For example; the book of Proverb is one book that really needs not to be read with human knowledge. Proverbs chapter 31 talks about the woman of noble character, a woman who works and takes care of her house, the Lord said many things there that when taught by the holy Spirit it refers to our heart The word of God studied in the holy spirit reveals the hidden things of God, so that only this who are of Him can have access to Him and His wisdom through His word. I used this " cleanliness being next to godliness " as an illustration, as a reference to the hearts of men. Our heart is the house of God, except our heart is put in order He cannot dwell in us. And so I said " if one cannot take care of his physical being or surroundings, then he cannot take care of the word of God deposited in him, hindering him from having Jesus. Once again I thank you for pointing out that lack of interpretation. I hope this is helpful. Thank you Jesus.

    Hmmm...a little confused. Where in the Bible did Jesus say "cleanliness is next to godliness?"

    Thank you, Nikola. I'm often reminded that we are Christ's hands and feet as we live for Him in the dark places of the earth in the midst of rebellion and violence. Your poem reminds me that we are also in those places as a longing of His heart which is important to Him. Malachi 3:16, Psalm 68:18

    Wow! That's quite a story! Amazing, really. That sounds very interesting about you looking like both your biological and stepfather alike. What do you mean your mom and dad became those things? Weren't they already doing that? Or were they busy with other jobs/careers? Here: <<why till years later. My stepfather, on the other side>> I think you could end the paragraph with "years later" and start a new one with your stepfather, since they are two different people and it's kind of like you're changing the subject of the paragraph. That could just be me, though...

    I wish I had the full understanding of what this story means. It can be interpreted in many ways but I must admit that the writer's intent is a mystery to me. I believe it is meant to be an analogy of the spiritual struggle between good and evil, light and darkness. life and death. If so, it moves me. However, if it is a horror story it truly is horrifying.

    Hi Robert. I've just joined ChristianWriters, and your post is my first engagement. I guess because your "This Godless Society" matches my own thoughts. Times have changed, of course, Here in Canada, there was a time when the Mounted Police used to actually enforce The Lord's Day Act. A more religious and respectful time. Your post brought back my own memories of living in Yorkshire as a lad -- it was in the time of the Queen's Coronation. My most profound memories are of visiting stone churches, abbeys (Kirklees Priory Gate House a number of times) -- and especially York Minster Cathedral. I didn't find God -- God found me. And for me, that was a spiritual time. England has no doubt changed, but my memories remain. Thanks, and Bless you, Brian

    I liked this devotional and had not thought of that separation leading to a second chance. A minor matter perhaps, but do you need both 'although' and 'but" in However, although no Barnabas gospel can be found in the Bible but Barnabas groomed John Mark who wrote the Mark gospel and became beneficial to Paul while he was in prison. Perhaps drop the word 'but'

    Most of the world religions feature common themes within. A deity is worshiped, a problem with the world is observed, and a solution proposed. While these features are present in biblical Christianity, the differences between it and other religions are vast. Biblical Christianity has its founding, salvation work, and conversion in the Creator God. What distinguishes Christianity from other faiths is that it is not man discovering and developing, but God disclosing and dictating. God is the founder. Whatever the specifics, salvation in the world’s religions can generally be categorized as accomplished through man’s exertions. Christianity is not fundamentally a religion of external improvement, but internal re-birth. In this way, biblical Christianity is the photo negative of the world’s religions. Salvation is God’s doing, not man’s. This is a major difference between Christianity and all other world religions. Excepts from: https://www.crosswalk.com/home-page/todays-features/3-key-differences-between-christianity-and-other-religions.html

    The story was very touching. I felt the uncertainty of the husband of interacting with his child but the feeling of anxiety of not being able to remember the relationship with his wife; whether is was loving or distant.

    "before the world and all created thingswhen the spirit sang above the watersand the tune, like feathers, formed his wings." What an ending! Strong finish to a lovely Advent poem. Thank you for sharing.

    The mention of not praying for schools reminded me of a movie, Facing the Giants. One of the greatest scenes is when one of the teachers is shown going through the hallways, passing his hand o all the lockers praying for the students. Then it shows how God began speaking to the hearts of the students. Thanks for the reminder of praying for those who are not directly involved in our lives.
