  • LAWN CARE

  • LAWN CARE 

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    In Streams in the Desert

    "He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass" (Ps. 72:6).

    Amos speaks of the king's mowings. Our King has many scythes, and is perpetually mowing His lawns. The musical tinkle of the whetstone on the scythe portends the cutting down of myriads of green blades, daisies and other flowers. Beautiful as they were in the morning, within an hour ...

  • UNADORNED LIFE

  • UNADORNED LIFE -  

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    "These were the potters, and those that dwelt among plants and hedges: there they dwelt with the king for his work" (1 Chron. 4:23).

    Anywhere and everywhere we may dwell "with the king for his work." We may be in a very unlikely and unfavorable place for this; it may be in a literal country life, with little enough to be seen of the "goings" of the King around us...

    This devotional was written by Robin Dugall

     

    “It is too small a thing for you to be my servant to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept. I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring my salvation to the ends of the earth.” Isaiah 49:6

     

    It’s not hard to look around and ...

  • IT MUST BE BOUGHT

  • IT MUST BE BOUGHT -   

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    "On all bare heights shall be their pasture" (Isa. 49:9, RV).

    Toys and trinkets are easily won, but the greatest things are greatly bought. The top-most place of power is always bought with blood. You may have the pinnacles if you have enough blood to pay. That is the conquest condition of the holy heights everywhere. The story of real heroisms is the st...

  • A Season of Thanks

  • A Season of Thanks -  

    This devotional was written by Kelly McFadden

     

    All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal. —Psalm 119:160

     

    This holiday season, you will most likely hear the song “My Favorite Things” from the Broadway musical The Sound of Music. To me this song has always felt out of place during the holidays, until recently. I have begun to hear it in a new l...

  • RUN WITH PATIENCE

  • RUN WITH PATIENCE - 

    BY MRS. CHARLES COWMAN

    In Streams in the Desert

    "Let us run with patience" (Heb. 12:1). 

    To run with patience is a very difficult thing. Running is apt to suggest the absence of patience, the eagerness to reach the goal. We commonly associate patience with lying down. We think of it as the angel that guards the couch of the invalid. Yet, I do not think the invalid's patience the ha...

  • FINDING MY SEAT AT THE TABLE OF GRATITUDE

  • FINDING MY SEAT AT THE TABLE OF GRATITUDE

    My little Halloween pumpkin is rotting on my front step. Here in Tennessee, our unseasonably warm fall has not treated our carved decorations well. I know it is time to move on, to grab the pumpkin by the stem and toss it, but seeing that little guy hearkens me back to a happier time.

    *Remember a few weeks ago when it was Halloween? We were all focused on Ha...

    Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgression.  Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. - Psalm 51:1

    Sin is serious.  It is enticing, alluring, provocative, inviting, and even enjoyable, but it is serious and its consequences a...

  • Planting Seeds

  • Planting Seeds --  

    This devotional was written by Kelly McFadden

     

    Then he told them many things in parables, saying: "A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants ...
