What are you facing today? Can I pray with you and about what? You know, God isn't far away. It may feel like it, but when you Google verses about the nearness of God, take comfort in the fact that the Bible doesn't talk about a God sitting somewhere in the sky, distant and cold.

When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, reason like a child, think like a child. But now that I have become a man, I’ve put an end to childish things.

But God shows his love for us, because while we were still sinners Christ died for us.

Do you see your suffering as going through something for Christ or was there something in your decision-making that caused the suffering? Maybe a lesson to learn and apply to similar future decisions? Reading John 8:1-11. Interesting how most people quote the part about not throwing the first stone, but gloss over verse 11 when Jesus commands to go and sin no more. Second chances are gifts. Mercy is a gift. We like the verses in the Bible that pat us on the back or justify us, but run from sterner verses that talk about doing more difficult things. Facing a bad decision is difficult, but you CAN through Jesus overcome your pride and fear and be a better person because of it. I faced me in the "mirror" and Jesus forgave me. Turn over a new leaf today. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+8%3A1-11&version=NLT

The best inspiration for long journeys is watching dramatic re-creations of impossible situations. I watched, "Walt Before Mickey," and now, "Woman in Gold." In both, these real life people faced intimidating obstacles to reach a dream or to do the right thing. Something worth doing is worth doing to the end and worth doing well even if the journey is rough. In, "Woman in Gold," the two face an emotional journey, facing the past and fighting power and money. In, "Walt Before Mickey," Walt went through failed businesses and poverty, but he kept his eyes fixed on the future. In, "Woman in Gold," Maria faces her fear, wanting to give up several times. What are you battling and what Bible verses keep you trying and trying again?

Brothers and sisters, we want to let you know about the grace of God that was given to the churches of Macedonia. While they were being tested by many problems, their extra amount of happiness and their extreme poverty resulted in a surplus of rich generosity. I assure you that they gave what they could afford and even more than they could afford, and they did it voluntarily. They urgently begged us for the privilege of sharing in this service for the saints. They even exceeded our expectations, because they gave themselves to the Lord first and to us, consistent with God’s will. As a result, we challenged Titus to finish this work of grace with you the way he had started it.

Reading Exodus 2:11-22 with the devotion on the stewardship of our physical attributes. We are endowed with physical strength. Moses killed an Egyptian and defended his future wife with his physical attributes.

It matters how we use that gift, never for revenge or bullying. But I loved how this devotional expanded on the stewardship of abilities:

""Our talents and special abilities belong to God," says theologian, Kenneth Boa. "We own nothing that was not first given to us...(see 1Co 4:7). God has entrusted us with aptitudes and abilities, and as good stewards, we must use them for His glory and not our own. This is true not only of musical, artistic, athletic, academic, business, and persuasive talents, but also of the spiritual gifts we have received.""

With words or actions, as image-bearers of God, we cannot use our gifts or abilities, our words to bully or take revenge. The devotional goes on to explain that because of our worth before the Lord, we all stand on equal ground before Him. In social media speak, every profile is a human being with a name, feelings, and a history who are as undeserving as us to receive the Salvation Jesus offers. A gift is meant to be given away. Are you sharing your gift with others and choosing to use your words to learn about the human behind the social media profile? Find five things out about a new friend today.
