From My Heart Devotionals

The Empty Barrel

The Empty Barrel

For who hath despised the day of small things?  Zechariah 4:9 A friend told me one time that she made decisions like a squirrel crossing a road.  That completely describes me.  Maybe I should get this.  No, maybe I shouldn’t.  Then again, maybe I should.  With the...

And No One Knew…

And No One Knew…

It had been a stressful experience.  I had done the prep work for summer vacation Bible schools before, so it shouldn’t have been hard.  But this time was different.  I now had two young children who had changed my world.  I threw myself into putting my lessons...

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not…

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not…

I was pacing and praying in the women’s prayer room at campmeeting when I saw that someone was trying to get in.  The doorknob was turning, but for some reason, the door was not opening readily.  I went to help whoever it was.  There, struggling outside the prayer...

My Puny Arms

My Puny Arms

I don’t have vast experience in fighting.  As a child, I got into arguments with different people.  Sometimes my mouth got to going, but not my fists.  I never fought with children at school, the neighbors, or anyone else…with the exception of one person.  Just one. ...

The Test Is Hard…

The Test Is Hard…

After dealing with seemingly endless eye surgeries, my husband gloomily told me, “Well, I wonder how long until I’ll have to go on disability?”  Although he still had his eyesight, he was starting to feel like he should emotionally prepare for the day that he could no...

Beautiful?

Beautiful?

On the way back from the wedding, I turned to my husband Todd and asked, “Did you see that beautiful woman by the door of the church?”  I wanted to help him make connections of who she was related to, but Todd was not getting it. “What woman?” he asked, a little...

Where’s Grandma?

Where’s Grandma?

And he wist not that the Lord was departed from him.  Judges 16:20 “Where’s Grandma?” someone asked.  The family looked around and realized…she was gone.  She had quietly slipped out the back door.  It wasn’t the first time.  As they would get together, they would...

Giant Killing

Giant Killing

I’ve gotten a chance to watch someone kill a giant.  Several, in fact.  I’ve seen people struggling with stability in the face of emotional issues, others with cancer, and even one with a drug addiction come to God and get victory.  I’ve seen them stand and testify,...

Alone on Poplar Street

Alone on Poplar Street

Rushing down Poplar Street on our way to school, we saw him.  “Look, there’s a deer!” one of my children called.  We all craned our necks to see the young male running down the sidewalk.  Sometimes near the park and dam, we’ll see deer.  The Verdigris River is nearby,...

Shut In

Shut In

“Moreover the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah the second time, while he was yet shut up in the court of the prison…”   It seems that every time I spend time in Jeremiah, I want to write about him.  I feel like I’ve become Jeremiah’s friend.  Reading through,...
