Storytime

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Psalm 107:2a

Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story.

O-bservation:

Probably no one in the history of humankind has ever editorialized his or her own story better than King David. Evidently his Poetry, his Praise, his Prose, and his Plain and simple honesty served as a Personal Testimony of his great love for “The Almighty.”

A-pplication:

When you mention the word “Storytime” to a young child, it’s as if the world stops for a brief moment. The child gives their full attention to your every move. And for this ever so short encounter you are their Steven Spielberg and they are your audience of one, offering their rapt attention to every word you say. All Jesus asks of “His Followers” is that they simply tell their story as often as they possibly can to as many people as they possibly can. The nature of a “Personal Testimony of Faith” is that it is a simple plot line. It goes like this; I once was lost but now I’m found, was blind but now I see. Of course there’s lots of pomp and circumstance, down and out, victory and defeat, euphoria and tragedy mixed in, but you get the idea. It’s not fictional. It’s biographical in every way. It’s “Storytime.” Now you must GO and tell yours.

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

This AM I’m headed out again in a few moments to give my “Personal Testimony” to whoever will listen. I never grow tired of it. I suppose it’s because You’re the center of “My Story.” Amen

  1. Frances is in Toronto to see a friend who is in the last stages of cancer. The family has no relationship with GOD and the devil has done everything he can to keep the place in chaos, HOWEVER the Holy Spirit is using it to do a miracle. Frances has been ministering to her friend Chris midst the turmoil and bring peace. GOD is working. Thank you for your prayers. Frances will be home on Monday.

  2. Not telling my story would be false humility and a disservice to my family and friends. I know that my obedience to the faith brought me all good things such as health, comfort and the joy of my salvation.
