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

    Teach me God to...

    "You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you." (Isaiah 26:3 ESV)

    The other day on my daily bike ride I stood on the shore of Lake Huron. The sun was high in the sky and getting hotter by the minute. Several white cotton ball style clouds silently moved from right to left. Behind me I could hear the flow of traffic as people headed for their destination. In front of me was the relentless sound of the waves rolling on the beach then retreating.

    Standing there the words of a song I'd written for my bike rides were fresh in my mind. "Teach me God to listen, teach me God to hear. Tune my ears to hear you when you speak words of love compassion come into my heart. Tune my heart to hear them when you speak." I looked down and watched as the washing of the waves was constantly moving the sand inches from my feet. As the waves rolled in so did the sand. As the waves retreated so did the sand.

    Suddenly and silently rather than looking at the shore of Lake Huron I found myself looking at what the cares of world was trying to do in me. Then powerfully and insightful today's verse spoke volumes to my fragmented and conflicted life, "You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you." (Isaiah 26:3 ESV)

    Minutes later back on my bike I stopped momentarily of singing my song and silently thanked Jesus not only for singing it with me but giving me the lesson on listening and hearing.

    "Teach me God to listen! Teach me God to hear! Tune my ears to hear you when you speak!"

    Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!

    Grace and PEACE, Amen!

    Amen Gary! Timely words for me.
    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)
