“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly.  Amen.  Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” Revelation 22:20 (KJV) I was invited to go to Moore Elementary School with a 5th grader, Nasir Drake, and be his grandmother for the day. His grandparents are deceased. Nasir never knew what life is about…

“And he knew it, and said, It is my son’s coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces” (Genesis 37:33 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).

We’ve all been there. When we contemplate the worst case scenario and a feeling of dread overwhelms us. At least once a month I get caught in a serious case of worrying because my husband is not home as promptly as I think he should be. I can’t reach him on his cell phone and I start jumping to conclusions of what might have happened. Reading our devotional verse made me downright angry with Joseph’s brothers because of the grief they caused their father. Jacob surmised what could have happened to Joseph when he saw the bloody coat. Don’t jump to conclusions when it comes to your children. Reading the story of Joseph’s life, we understand how God protected and promoted him despite all odds. This gives me hope that God has everything in His control!

Prayer: Dear Lord, I pray for all the parents who are genuinely concerned about their children. May this story serve as a reminder not to give up even though the situation looks hopeless. Only God knows how many more chapters are ahead.

“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:” (1 John 5:14 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).

The word confidence is used 38 times throughout the Bible and usually refers to our confidence in God. Confidence is built on what He has done for us in the past. Trust is based upon the relationship we have with God.

We’re all undeserving yet He loves us. We’re His children and He wants the best for us. Go ahead and ask Him anything! He will listen to your requests.

Prayer: Lord, I thank You for Your faithfulness! I am confident that You hear me when I come with my requests. Today I’m struggling with a situation I can’t handle, but I bring my petition to You knowing You will see me through! Amen.

“Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor?” (Romans 9:21, in the King James Version of the Holy Bible)

This morning this scripture put me in my place when I read it and realized that He’s the potter and I’m just clay.

A potter’s occupation is to make earthen vessels. Clay has no real value until it’s placed into the potter hands. With his hands, he begins to form it into something of his choosing.

He can do whatever He desires with me because He’s in charge. I can’t possibly pull myself up by the proverbial “boot straps.” I want to stay in the Master Potter’s hands and let Him mold me according to His plan. I’m in good hands when I’m in His hands.

Prayer: Lord, mold me and make me after Your will. Help me to be pliable and flexible to what You have in mind for me. I desire to be a vessel of honor. In Jesus Name, amen!

Years ago in a math class, I discovered something that still helps me more than 50 years later. The teacher told the class that if you had a negative you could add a positive in the same amount and it would cancel out the negative. I have a friend who…
