From My Heart Devotionals

Just Asking

Just Asking

My heart has been touched this last week.  My family was in Shelbyville, Indiana, for the only vacation Bible school we scheduled this summer.  I was teaching the verse “If two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for...

Sweet Smelling

Sweet Smelling

I have cleaned houses for years.  One of the most interesting experiences was the time I was hired to clean up the mess left behind by a foster child.  This precious child had gone to his bedroom and made a mess of his feces.  This same bedroom was going to be used as...

The Year Uzziah Died

The Year Uzziah Died

Guest Post by Abigail Hamilton “I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne…”  I was reading Isaiah chapter six when God spoke to me. Isaiah got this wonderful vision of the Lord.  I wanted to see that.  I wanted to see the Lord, sitting high upon His throne.  Even the...

For My Good

For My Good

Today I had lunch with a friend.  I told her that the things that we don’t write down or tell, we tend to forget.  (That’s why it’s important to testify.)  Then, I went on to tell her the story of how God had worked for me in getting my house.  She asked, “Have you...

Lord, I Don’t Have Enough Faith

Lord, I Don’t Have Enough Faith

Years ago, a hailstorm came through and damaged the roof on my home church in Frankfort, Indiana.  Knowing that the church had to have a new roof, the people scheduled a construction crew to come.  There was supposed to be several good days, so they tore off the...

Let’s Submit!

Let’s Submit!

Lately, I have been working on a new story.  Many of you know that when I start to make plans to self-publish a visualized children’s story, I first tell it myself.  Then after I “test drive” the continued story in some camp or vacation Bible school, it might end up...

He Has the Grace

He Has the Grace

Guest Post:  Abigail Hamilton It probably was a week or two before my junior or senior year. My wisdom teeth had just gotten removed, and I was lying in the recliner, feeling very groggy. School was about to start. I lay there in the dark living room crying out to God...

Respect

Respect

I have lived behind my church for twenty-three years.  I remember one summer, years ago, driving past my church. There were the police…and there were my pastor and his wife also!  I immediately stopped to find out what was going on.  They explained to me that the...
