Day 22: Devotion

(The Flower Fields: Carlsbad, California)
 

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.”
                                      – Romans 12:20

Give love not in proportion to what is given you. 
Respect and honor by thinking more highly of others than ourselves.

Day 3: Father

(Arizona)


“He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” 
                                                                   -Zeph. 3:17b

“So, then it was not you who sent me here, but God. He made me a father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt.” 
                                                                  – Gen. 45:8

God is a father to the fatherless. He’s always a father to me in the absence of my father who died 18 years ago. He calms all my fears and hugs me every time I need a TLC. I’m always secure because of His love. I bet Joseph felt the same when he was sold to Egypt and can’t feel the love of his family.
