May 17-23 Family Devotions
These short devotions are from Sally Lloyd-Jones’ book,
“Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing.”
Week of May 17-23
Theme: LET THE SUN IN!
When you open the windows, do you have to beg the fresh air to come in? Or when you open the curtains in the morning, do you have to argue with the sun to make it shine into your room? How silly! You just open the windows and the air flows in. You open the curtains and the sun shines in.
The Bible says it’s like that with God’s peace.
It will flow into our hearts, if we let it.
Are you worried? Are you anxious?
Is anything troubling you today?
Don’t try to work it all out by yourself.
Let God’s peace flow in—like sunshine into a dark room.
“Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts.”
