Crochet is an ancient art form. Some say its a form of meditation that's beneficial to our health. I enjoy the creative aspect of crochet...when one creates something beautiful and useful from a simple piece of string!

Today's devotion is from Joyce Meyer Ministries and explains Sowing and Reaping.

Galatians 6:7
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this and this only is what he will reap.



Our attitudes and words are “seeds” we sow each day that determine what kind of fruit or harvest we’ll have in our circumstances and relationships.

With God’s grace, make the choice to sow love, forgiveness, kindness, and patience in every relationship and situation. You’ll find that as you treat others the way God wants you to, you will reap a life filled with encouraging, godly relationships and satisfying results.

Today's Bible verse is from Matthew 2:12-15
12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

Today's Bible verse is from Matthew 2:5-11

And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.

Today's Bible verse is from Matthew Chapter 2:2-4  (KJV)



Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

Today's devotion is about "Living Debt Free" from Joyce Meyers Devotions.

Romans 13:8
Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. 
and
Luke 19:17
17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.


The battle of our finances is really a spiritual battle. We are tempted to spend more than we are able to pay off and that creates stress, frustration  and pressure, thus distracting us from our walk with God. So learn and practice living within your income boundaries, then watch God expand them.

Today's devotion was my Mother's favorite. 

Matthew 6:25-33 KJV

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Today's devotion is from Mark 11:23 KJV.

" For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, "Be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea;" and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith."

We usually talk about the "mountains" or challenges in our lives, but God's Word instructs us to talk to them with the Word of God.
