A Devotional Life That Pleases God

    Thanks for the beautiful picture. This morning I took my cup of coffee , walked into my back yard, touched the holly loaded with turning berries, admired the blooming camellias, tied up a tomato vine in the green house and pinched off the blooms on a basil plant. I thanked God for this place where I dwell. I can never go outside in the early morning where ever I am without thanking Him for the beauty of his creation. Thank you for the time you give to post the devotions. It gives me another time in the day to breifly ” think on these things”

    Praying scripture is a great way of walking in the spirit and something I had gotten away from until reading your message this morning, thank you. I also love Christian music and use this to pray and medetate just by really listening to the words of the message in the song. If anyone wants suggestions try Amy Grants “Hynms For the Journey”. Just focus on the words of the songs and realize the power in them. Its also my way of personal worship. Thanks again Pastor.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Many people use music in just the way you described and find it extremely helpful. Though I do not deliberately use music, I often find myself praising God through an old hymn or a new worship song.
