May 24-30 Family Devotions
These short devotions are from Sally Lloyd-Jones’ book,
“Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing.”
Week of May 24-30
Theme: CLOUDS AND MOUNTAINS AND STARS
Have you noticed that when it’s cloudy you can’t see the stars? And that sometimes clouds can even hide mountains from you?
For a moment it seems as if there are no stars shining, no mountains standing.
Have the mountains moved? Have the stars stopped shining?
No. The clouds have just hidden them.
Feelings can be like clouds—they blow in and hide things from us. Sometimes they tell us God doesn’t care. Or that God is far away.
The writer Amy Carmichael said, “Our feelings do not affect God’s facts.”
Our feelings come and go. But God stays the same. His promises are still shining.
“God is greater than our feelings.”
—1 John 3.20
