Glory Seed Guidelines

Notice – The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

These daily devotionals are brought to you by Gary Piper, a writer with our Sister Site, Natural Spirit Ministries. TheologyWeb encourages you to visit and support their site.... they have many informative articles which can be discussed right here. If you enjoy Gary Piper's devotionals, please send him an encouraging note or post. We are very appreciative of our partnership with Natural Spirit Ministries and look forward to many more co-ventures.

    Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise

    Taking that first step…

    Life is an adventure.

    Life is a journey of faith.

    Life is always on the edge of new beginnings. A woman just diagnosed with breast cancer must begin a new life. A widower must begin a new life. A newly retired person must begin a new life. A high school graduate must begin a new life. Newly weds must begin a new life. And the list goes on and on.

    For some taking that first step into a new lifestyle is nearly impossible. When learning to ride a bike the hardest part of falling isn’t the fall or the sudden stop when you hit the ground but getting back on it!

    I remember lyrics from a song from years back that go something like this, “Put your hand in the hand of the man that walks on the Sea of Galilee.” And I am reminded of the Apostle Paul’s personal testimony, “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:31)

    One of the hardest first steps of my life occurred when my Orthopedic Surgeon told me following my first hip replacement surgery I no longer needed the crutches. So if you’ve fallen or if you’ve suddenly found your life has changed and you are dreading that first step then say a short prayer, “Jesus, I need help with not only the first step but all the rest of them as well.” Then if you’re patient and quiet you hear him say, “Let’s go for a walk!” And when he does put your hand in the hand of the man that walked across the Sea of Galilee and into your life.

    Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!

    Grace and PEACE, Amen!
