  • PUT FORTH

  • PUT FORTH -  

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

  • Power Up!  

    “I wish I had a picture of my mom, “the young man said. “You look just like her.”

    Sounds nice, yes? Fail.

    Just five minutes earlier I learned that he was the baby in the family, the last of nine children—and that his mother just celebrated her 83rd birthday.

    This devotional was written by Elizabeth Cole

     

    ...for “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in?  And how can they believe in the one whom they have not heard?  And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? —Romans 10:13-14

     

    My 17-year-old was on her way to go sledding with fr...

  • Night of Pure Faith

  • NIGHT OF PURE FAITH  -  

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN   

    In Streams in the Desert   

    "Lo, a horror of great darkness fell upon him" (Gen. 15:12).

    The sun at last went down, and the swift, eastern night cast its heavy veil over the scene. Worn out with the mental conflict, the watchings, and the exertions of the day, Abraham fell into a deep sleep, and in that sleep his soul was oppressed with a dense a...

  • Taking the Long View

  • Taking the Long View -   

    I admired the 6-foot-diameter circle of cleared earth that now surrounded one of the new saplings in our yard; I’d just spent an hour hand-pulling non-native grasses that had threatened to overwhelm the young tree. Happy with my work, I took a step back and turned around to survey the rest of our property.
