Carnival Devotions

a Biblical thought...
I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea. (Isaiah 48:17-18)

a Book thought...
Get to know two things about a man - how he earns his money and how be spends it - and you have the clue to his character, for you have a searchlight that shows up the innermost recesses of his soul. You know all you need to know about his standards, his motives, his driving desires, and his real religion. (Robert J. McCracken)
a Dave thought...
Everyday during the basketball 15 minutes is scheduled in the middle of the day for the games to stop and all participants to gather at court 1 for some God time. The devotions this year have been very moving and personal. Stacey May from the NT was responsible for this time yesterday and shared some of her struggles over the last couple of years and how at INSANE 2009 she gave her heart back to God. As there were over 300 people there listening to Stacey being so real and personal about her faith it had a big impact. It reminded me once again the power of an individual sharing their story. Personal testimonies are a great part of who we are as the Salvos and continue to inspire and move us all.

Just a thought.
