An Air Force Chaplain's Wartime Devotions
Author: Lyle E. Von Seggern

This book is the first volume of a 3-volume series. The 52 devotions in this volume were written by an Air Force Chaplain, who served humbly for God and with members of the 433d Airlift “Alamo” Wing, Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, who bravely served at home and in deployed locations throughout the world as they served our Nation during “Operation Iraqi Freedom” and “Operation Enduring Freedom.” These humble devotions were written for military members and their families to encourage them and help them with their spiritual strength. It was important to me to share a Scripture passage with the devotions to keep the troops in the Word.

While the role of a military chaplain is not well known to the general civilian population, I have published this series of volumes as a means to reveal the important role that a chaplain provides to military personnel and to their families, in peacetime or during times of war. I shall forever be proud of the time that I served as a chaplain in support of the young men and women who were serving in arms-way.
Since a chaplain is charged with bringing spiritual help and direction to ALL members of the military, these devotions were written to support and encourage individuals of different faith backgrounds who were proudly serving the United States of America. Although these devotions were written for the 433d Airlift “Alamo” Wing” personnel during times of conflict, these devotions are equally applicable to members of the military serving during peacetime or wartime.

A Soldiers Strength from the Psalms
Devotional calendar and journal
Author: Sharon Patterson, Copyright @ 2007

Knowing that no one comprehends the challenges that a soldier faces like another soldier, the inspiration for this book comes from the writings of an ancient soldier who righteously protected the innocent; stood firm on the ferocious frontlines of battle; patrolled dangerous checkpoints; walked the lonely late night and early morning watches; guarded city gates; climbed rugged terrain in all kinds of weather; and faced enemies in the deserts and on the mountains. That soldier, King David, endured many of the same experiences as today's soldier. He also needed and drew strength daily from Almighty God. He wrote of his struggles and victories, recorded his prayers and praises from his experiences. What encouragement, hope, and comfort come from the Psalms he left to us.

This devotional countdown calendar-journal is meant to be a source of daily encouragement, a place where soldiers and their families can record feelings and events that have impacted them during their deployment experience. It is a legacy of shared courage and sacrifice of and for the outstanding men and women who serve our great nation in military service. About the Author: Sharon Patterson, retired educator, career military wife, and leader in women's ministry, has written inspirational encouragement in various forms, from greeting cards to short stories, poetry, and Bible studies for over twenty-five years. Sharon and her husband, retired Colonel Garry Patterson, are the parents of three grown sons. Two sons presently serve in the U.S. Army. Sharon and Garry reside in Round Rock, Texas.

Stories of faith and courage from the Civil War
Author: Terry Tully, Copyright @ 2006

The period from 1861-1865 proved to be one of the greatest periods of trial and suffering in our nations history. A significant lapse of time had passed since America had engaged in the horrors of war. After the war of 1812, little memory remained of the fact that war could be “hell.” A veteran of the war with Mexico, General “Stonewall” Jackson wrote to his wife and said, “People who are anxious to bring on war don’t know what they are bargaining for; they don’t see all the horrors that must accompany such an event.”

Stories of faith and courage from the Korean War
Author: Larkin Spivery, Copyright @ 2015

In Stories of Faith and Courage from the Korean War, Larkin Spivey shows real people fighting and living through a difficult conflict and an almost forgotten era of American history. His stories are presented in a daily devotional format with scripture readings each day, revealing both the routine and the astounding ways in which God acts to empower believers and answer doubts. Every person of faith will come closer to God through these pages and religious skeptics will see many of their own questions explored in depth. 

Spivey also presents a concise history of the Korean War with overviews, maps and photographs giving new insights into why America fought this war and the incredible results over the following decades. Each month a different aspect of the conflict is emphasized, including the early history of Korea, introduction of Christianity, Japanese and Soviet occupations, the different campaigns of the war and the development of the armistice. 

This unique combination of the front line drama, coupled with the broader historical context of the conflict, gives a picture of war and combat unavailable in other histories. 

Battlefields and Blessings
Stories of faith and courage from the Revolutionary War 
Author: Jane Hampton Cook, Copyright @ 2007

The book features 365 devotionals, one for each day of the year. Each devotional features a 400-450-word story, a relevant scripture, and an application-oriented sentence prayer.

Each week highlights five stories that chronicle the Revolutionary War, followed by two weekend features called Weekend Reflection and Sabbath Rest. Weekend Reflection takes a modern-day twist on a topic, such as contentment and life purpose, presented in the preceding stories. Sabbath Rest highlights a sermon from the Revolutionary era. These 52 meaty messages show how scripture is as alive today as it was during America’s founding. These sermons also reveal the spiritual struggle facing the patriots as they decided to pursue independence, take up arms, and overthrow their government.

The devotionals come alive through the viewpoints of the Revolution’s key players, such as George Washington, King George III, Samuel Adams, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Abigail Adams, Martha Washington, Nathanael Greene, Henry Knox, and Benjamin Franklin. Excerpts from their original manuscripts, letters, and speeches give the book authenticity and accuracy. Unlike many books with historical subjects, this devotional incorporates faith as an important element in the decisions and emotions of these heroes and heroines. It will also show the life purpose of the patriots.

The themes presented in the book transcend generations, making the book relevant to modern day readers who also struggle with topics such as loneliness, contentment, purpose, fear, safety, God’s will, jealousy, rivalry, cooperation, and disappointment.

Because the stories chronicle America’s Revolutionary War and cover more than two decades, the book does not correspond to seasons and holidays. As a result, readers may begin the book any time during the year. The stories may be so captivating for some readers that they may read the book from “cover to cover.”

As readers consider the meaning of the American Revolution, they may also experience a revolution in their own hearts, one devotional at a time.

Stories of faith and courage from the Vietnam War 
Author: Larkin Spivey, Copyright @ 2011

In Stories of Faith and Courage from the Vietnam War Larkin Spivey shows real people fighting and living through a difficult conflict and confusing era of American history. His stories are presented in a daily devotional format with scripture readings each day, revealing the amazing ways in which God acts to empower believers and answer doubts. Every person of faith will come closer to God through these pages, and religious skeptics will see many of their own questions explored in depth.

Spivey also presents a concise history of the Vietnam War with overviews, maps, and photographs to give new insights into why America fought this war and how American, Allied, and South Vietnamese warriors in effect won it on the battlefield. Each month a different aspect of the conflict is emphasized, including the history after World War II, early U. S. involvement, guerilla fighting, conventional warfare, civic action, the Tet Offensive, Vietnamization, prisoners of war, air and helicopter operations, and finally, the long post-war road to reconciliation for Vietnam veterans.

By combining the drama of front line action with the broader historical context of the conflict Spivey gives a picture of war and combat unavailable in other histories. Indexes enable readers to search stories by name or topic, including a wide range of life issues such as addiction, anger, anxiety, doubt, fear, forgiveness, hearing and understanding God, hope, leadership, miracles, post traumatic stress, salvation, suffering, trust, and much more. Readers can find stories specifically relating to corpsmen, medics, children, prisoners of war, missing in action, nurses, refugees, wives, women, and many other relevant topics.

Faithful Under Fire
A Bible study and devotional for the film Hacksaw Ridge
CRU Military, Copyright @ 2016
Link to FREE download

We are honored to stand alongside our uniformed heroes who find themselves needing to be “faithful under fire”. Our heroes, just like WWII Army medic and Medal of Honor recipient Private First Class Desmond Doss, recently portrayed in Lionsgate Entertainment’s film Hacksaw Ridge, faithfully serve with honor and distinction because it’s the right and godly thing to do.

For those that serve in uniform today, it still takes a special courage to hold onto one’s biblical convictions in what is an increasingly pluralistic or secular “marketplace.” The need to live faithfully in this world as citizens of our Nation while reserving our highest allegiance to the Kingdom of God is as great as it has even been. Service members pledge to serve and even die so we can live our lives in freedom. That’s a heavy burden to bear without Jesus.

Faith, Hope, Love & Deployment
40 devotions for military couples
Author: Heather Gray, Copyright @ 2014

Just as Heather Gray and her deployed husband realized, many military couples need more than their own imaginations to keep their marriages flourishing during deployments. This is their answer to that dilemma.

During her husband David's last deployment to Afghanistan, Heather and he realized the need for a devotional that would not only draw them closer to the Lord, but also to each other while separated. They envisioned a combination of scripture memorization, stories of hope and struggles, a revitalization of the lost art of letter writing, and practical ideas for keeping connected during deployment. Not finding such a book, they began writing Faith, Hope, Love, & Deployment. Sadly, three months after beginning the project, David was killed in action.

''To answer the question of why I'm willing to lay my life on the line for my country. . . .'' So began the letter Heather received from her husband on the day of his funeral. The letter was an assignment from Faith, Hope, Love, & Deployment. She knew then the value of the devotional they had been writing for military couples.

At first Heather didn't think she could finish it without his input and support. But in the months that followed, she realized that we actually learn and grow the most through our pain and trials. She finished the devotional with the hope it would be as much a blessing for other military couples as it was for her and David.

Faith in the Fog of War (Volume 1)
Stories of triumph and tragedy in the midst of war
Author: Chris Plekenpol, Copyright @ 2006

You want the flare of your faith to burn as intensely as a fire on the battlefield. That means digging into God’s truth regardless of the chaos raging around you. These devotions are written by a man who had considered war something that someone else always did, and was then himself deployed to Iraq as a company commander. From the frontlines of the blackest days and in the face of inexplicable suffering, you’ll discover the heart of the question, “Why, God?” and its often unsettling answer. Because in war, as in contemporary America , reality involves struggle, trial, and triumph. Let God meet you in the midst of life’s nonsense to find the peace that is a crucial part of His impeccable plan. 

Why, God? War screams the same questions whispered in everyday life. The battlefield explodes with the same tenacity of emotions that wretch our souls. Smoke fills the air just as doubt clouds our minds. 

Are you on the frontlines of war overseas? Or perhaps your battle is personal, deep within. These devotions, penned by Captain Chris Plekenpol while on the battlefield in Iraq, expose the depths of inexplicable suffering as well as the heights of incredible victory in God. 

Through every adversity and in any circumstance, you will find a still voice reminding you of God’s sovereignty…in war and peace.

Thriving faith in military life
Author: Planting Roots, Copyright @ 2021

Does your military adventure leave you feeling more like you’re floundering than flourishing?

You are not alone. Military life brings unique challenges for both women in uniform and military spouses.

Fifteen military women and wives collaborated to encourage you through the words of Flourish: Thriving Faith in Military Life. Their combined twenty-five years in uniform and more than 300 years as military spouses brings inspiration and encouragement for every aspect of your life—relationships, separations, parenting, grief, transitions, health, and even retirement. This forty-five-day devotional will help you develop resilient faith for military life through:
  • Personal stories to encourage
  • Biblical truth to empower
  • Practical steps to overcome challenges
  • Reflection questions to make it personal

Through faith, God empowers us to live well in military life. It’s time to look forward with excitement and purpose to discover what God can do. Together, let’s embrace strength, hope, and freedom as we trust God with each step of our military journey.

God Strong
The military wife's spiritual survival guide
Author: Sara Horn, Copyright @ 2010

As a military wife, caring for your home and family is a mission that never stops. You want to support your husband while he serves, but you often wonder if you have what it takes. As someone who has been through this herself, Sara Horn will remind you with encouraging spiritual insights that you don't have to be an army of one when you are God Strong.

Currently, more than one million military wives care for their families and their homes, often while their husbands are deployed out of state or overseas for months at a time. These women can experience a roller coaster of emotions including disappointment, loneliness, and fear. Sara Horn, the wife of a navy reservist, understands the challenges these women face. She knows how to talk about faith and spiritual truths through the filter of military life. In her encouraging book, Horn shares her personal stories, as well as wisdom and anecdotes of other wives from all branches of service. She reminds readers that: * God is in control. * You can have joy, no matter what. * Superwomen get grace, too. * God knows where you hurt.

Home Is Where God Sends You
Lessons in contentment from nearby and faraway
Author: Janet Benlien Reeves, Copyright @ 2013

According to Isaiah 40:28, God created the ends of the earth. What a coincidence! That’s where you’re going! At least it’s where you may think you are going if you’re getting ready to move. The good news is: God will go with you. He has promised to, and, better yet, He’s gone ahead of you. He created the place after all—wherever it is! This is the message of Home Is Where God Sends You, a daily devotional for women who are moving that encourages them to cling to Christ’s constancy in the midst of dramatic change. Women who move frequently can begin to lose hold of the roots and long-term relationships that help bring stability and support to both spiritual and family life. These women must discover unique ways to hold firm to their faith and identity in the midst of constant change. Home Is Where God Sends You encourages them to trust God daily as they adjust to new surroundings. As they read daily devotionals corresponding to the many phases of a move, they’ll learn how to find contentment by claiming God’s presence as home wherever they go.

Military Wives' New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs (NIV)
90 days of encouragement and hope
Author: Jocelyn Green, Copyright @ 2013

​When your husband serves in the military, you're required to sacrifice as well, adding a level of strain to everyday life that most people can't understand. Frequent moves, unpredictable schedules, extended deployments, reintegration---and, in some cases, caregiving---all make a military spouse like you hungry for the stability and peace found in God's Word. This special New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs is designed to address your unique needs, hopes, fears, struggles, and insecurities. And since no one can speak to you as you journey through this unique situation like someone who has gone through it, this New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs includes 90 special devotions written by military wives and edited by Jocelyn Green, a former military wife who actively ministers to women in your situation. Let her words of help and hope, alongside God's Word, encourage you as you serve our country in your own way.

Psalm 91 - God's Shield of Protection
Author: Peggy Joyce Ruth, Copyright @ 2012

You will be taken through Psalm 91 verse-by-verse, unfolding the promises of protection from God. While there are other promises of protection found throughout the Bible, Psalm 91 is the only place in the Word where all of them are brought together in one collection.

Along with the author’s in-depth teaching, this book is full of heart-wrenching testimonies from servicemen who have seen firsthand God’s protective hand. Testimonies include those who survived a Nazi prison camp and have endured the turbulent times while fighting recently in Iraq, as well as a story from legendary author Corrie Ten Boom.

Come and understand God’s protection and become inspired and encouraged from those who have seen His protection firsthand. We will remember that the Lord has not made us to fear but to have power, love, and a sound mind.

Resting in God's Shadow
Encouragement for military bootcamp
Author: Chaplain (Major) Jeffrey Lynn Brooks U.S. Army Retired, Copyright @ 2017

Boot Camp. The starting point for everyone who joins the military. No one who signs up expects it to be easy. It’s not supposed to be. But everyone at some point during boot camp comes to the end of their own strength. It is at that point where a little encouragement makes all the difference. Resting in God’s Shadow offers encouragement specifically written for those in this especially challenging period of the military.

Chaplain (Major) Jeffrey L. Brooks, U.S. Army Retired knows what he’s talking about, with 22 years of active military service. During that time, he served as chaplain at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, encouraging the men and women in boot camp to never give up on themselves or their dreams, keep a positive mental attitude, and give it their best. Since then he’s had a passion to write these encouragements into a book.

This book is a collection of twelve devotionals, followed by a prayer book with spaces to record your thoughts. The devotionals in Part One correspond with the prayer book in Part Two. Concise and focused devotions fit into even the most rigorous training schedule. Whether you’re active in the military, or have a loved one headed to boot camp, this devotional is sure to provide just the right words of encouragement and Scripture.

You Are Not Alone
Encouragement for the heart of a military spouse
Author: Jen MDonald, Copyright @ 2016

"If the military wanted you to have a spouse, they would have issued you one." -Uncle Sam 

When you marry a military member, your life is suddenly no longer your own. You not only marry the one you love, but also a whole new way of life--one filled with separations, moves, deployments, and other challenges. 

How to cope with this ever-changing life? Jen McDonald is right there with you. For nearly three decades as a military spouse, she's been in the trenches of this unique military world and carved out her own rewarding life. 

In You Are Not Alone: Encouragement for the Heart of a Military Spouse, Jen offers a helping hand and a whisper of "You've got this!" as you make your own way. She celebrates the great moments with you, commiserates when it's not so easy, and points you to hard-won wisdom and helpful resources. Most of all, she reminds you that you're not alone on this military spouse journey. 

Each daily reading is written from the perspective of faith. In her warm, authentic style, Jen offers practical tips, related Scripture, and journal prompts for further reflection. Whether it's a deployment, move, or raising military kids, find real-life inspiration and hope from someone who's been there.

You Were Made for This
A 91 day devotional for military spouses
Author: Katherine Monit, Copyright @ 2017

Why this devotional? I am just a "normal" military spouse and a mom to three kiddos. I have never had the intention of becoming an author and I have not taken any special college level training focused in English. The Holy Spirit put this devotional on my heart to write. As I listened for the words He desired to say through me, I could hear Him say… "Write this book for military wives. They're searching for someone to hold them when they are scared, to feed them when the paycheck runs out, and to rejoice with them when no one else understands. I am He, their Heavenly Father, and they are my chosen daughters. No other women can do what they are doing. When their husbands get orders from their unit, I will give them peace. I will give them strength to raise Godly children even when their husbands are not near. If they choose to be different from the rest, I will be their helpmate. They are my baby girls, and I want nothing more than to bless them.” Why 91 days of devotions? My husband, as a Marine, had to go to basic training (boot-camp) for 12 weeks of intense physical and mental training. I believe we also need to dedicate ourselves to a similar period of mental and spiritual training to take on the critical role of being married into military life. Through the experiences God has carried me through, I’ve seen there WILL be days when we won’t hear from our husbands and challenging events WILL take place. In those moments we choose to be frantic or we choose to go to God for direction. It was important to me for his devotional to be easy to read, taking less than 5 minutes per day. Each day begins with a scripture and focuses on relatable life stories common among military families. I know God placed these things on my heart to help bring us to that next level of faith and empower us as a Christian military spouse.

A More Elite Soldier
Pursuing a life of purpose
Author: Chuck Holton, Copyright @ 2003

The rigor of becoming an Airborne Ranger is exceeded only by the challenge of being one - but those who join their ranks find fulfillment in something bigger than themselves. In the same way, pursuing God's objectives energizes our everyday lives. Former U.S. Army Ranger Chuck Holton shows how God oversees our training and gives each of us specific skills to accomplish the mission He has for us in this great spiritual war. Riveting action and powerful vignettes offer potent spiritual ammunition for the battles of every Christian serving in God's army. Find out what it takes to be a more elite soldier.

The making of an invincible mind
Author: Chuck Holton, Copyright @ 2005

Would you like to have the confidence, the kind of driving purpose, that shuts out all fear? Do you want your life to be filled with adventure? There are many kinds of soldiers, and the ones that this book is written for don’t necessarily wear a uniform. The missions these soldiers undertake have more than just political or historical significance—they are impacting eternity. Bulletproof is a field manual for the Christian soldier. It addresses the issues of fear and risk from a Christian perspective, using primarily military examples and analogies. Holton teaches believers how to overcome fear and join the ranks of the army of God.

In His Service
A guide to Christian living in the military
Author: Rick Bereit, Copyright @ 2002

The military isn’t just a profession. It’s a way of life—sometimes an all-consuming way of life. So how does a Christian, who is called to live whole-heartedly for God, mesh life in Christ with life in the military? Is it possible to live a consistent, obedient, godly life while complying with the military’s many requirements?

The answer is yes, and In His Service serves as a guide. Designed as a lifelong handbook—from the first day of basic training through an entire enlistment or career—In His Service is a comprehensive resource to equip all warriors from all branches for service to country and to God.

Rough Cut Men
A man's battle guide to building real relationships with each other, and with Jesus
Author: David Dusek, Copyright @ 2012

In the movie industry, the rough cut is defined as the raw, first edition of a movie, which provides an idea of what the finished product will look like, giving indications of where it has problems and where it excels.

Much like a rough cut movie, Rough Cut Men are not the “finished product”. We are a work in progress. Philippians 1:6 reads: “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Men today have hundreds of acquaintances, but most have no real friends. Men are isolated and struggling alone. And while the Bible says we are to “Pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up.” (Ecc. 4:10), most guys go into the battles of life with no covering fire. Every man needs a battle buddy.

Rough Cut Men utilizes a strategic blend of “guy” movie scenes, real world tales of men, Biblical Truth and even throws in some of the author’s personal testimony to accomplish one focused mission: To get men talking to each other about what’s really going on in their lives. Each chapter contains hard-hitting questions designed to drive men deeper in their walk with other men and with Christ.

Rough Cut Men is real, raw and authentic. And it will equip you for the battle.

Spirit Warriors
Strategies for the battles Christian men and women face every day
Author: Stu Weber, Copyright @ 2003

Pastor and former Green Beret captain Stu Weber reveals the crucial spiritual battles that all Christians face constantly, whether or not they are aware of them. "Somehow we have come to mistakenly associate spiritual warfare with charismatic personalities strutting across brightly lit platforms ... whuppin' up on evil spirits," says Weber. "But spiritual warfare is so much more than a show." With warm and winning counsel, the bestselling author/speaker warns of the very real perils readers face, giving them what they need to survive and thrive.

Tender Warrior
Every man's purpose, every woman's dream, every child's hope
Author: Stu Weber, Copyright @ 2006

Leader. Protector. Friend. Lover.

God made you to be each of these…and much more. Stu Weber ’s bestseller paints a dramatic and compelling picture of balanced manhood according to God’s vision. Written in a warm, personal style, Weber presents the characteristics of tender warriors— including learning to speak the language of women, watching out for what lies ahead, and keeping commitments—in an upfront, straightforward style that challenges readers to realize God’s plan for men.

Some Things Are Worth Fighting For

Young men aspire to it. Women admire it. Yet the definition of manhood itself is obscured by a culture in moral free fall. This book cuts through the fog and defines a powerful blueprint for being the man—the Tender Warrior—that God desires for you and your family. You’ll discover that a Tender Warrior:
  •  watches out for what lies ahead—like a wagon train scout;
  •  keeps his commitments, no matter how painful;
  •  has a tender heart beating beneath his armor;
  •  understands his responsibility to his wife, children, and friends;
  •  recognizes that he is “under orders from higher headquarters.”

The Battle
Tactics for biblical manhood learned from the 7th Cavalry in Vietnam
Author: David Dusek, Copyright @ 2021

Victory in the battle of life comes by the hand of solid tactics, the undying resolve to win, and the unbreakable bonds of battle-hardened brotherhood. Using content from We Were Soldiers and interviews with those who were in the brutal conflict portrayed in that film, David Dusek shows men how to defend themselves and those around them from the attacks of Satan seeking to steal, kill, and destroy.

Under Orders
A spiritual handbook for military personnel
Author: William McCoy, Copyright @ 2007

Under Orders is written for you in the military services who seek to nurture and sustain your faith in the face of war, deployments and the troubling questions of faith and life.

Chaplain Bill McCoy's work is inspirational-- it guides soldiers as they struggle with the questions surrounding their service and their faith...a great book for soldiers to read several times throughout their careers, because while the questions he poses will always remain the same, the answers will change with age, experience, and in a deepening conviction.

A devotional to help military families stay connected during deployments
Welcome to Excellent or Praiseworthy, a devotional site for military marriages. It is our goal to minister to you and to help you think about things which will refresh and comfort you during this time of war. We want you to have hope!

“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” — Romans 15:4

Excellent or Praiseworthy
40 days of the deployment dare (The Love Dare)
Have you had the thought, “What good is it to do The Love Dare book when we’re so far apart during this deployment?”

We read the book with just that question in mind and offer these daily ideas to complement what the authors, the Kendrick brothers, have written so well.  If you and your spouse are separated by deployment, but want to grow closer to each other and deal with the challenges of marriage, add these comments each day to what the authors have “dared.”

Actually—in some ways—The Love Dare is easier to do while separated!  Don’t let Satan deceive you into thinking that it is not possible to grow together when duty calls you apart!

You Version - Hope after Trauma
Written by a military combat veteran, this devotional explores the question, “How can I have hope after dealing with trauma?” Those that have suffered traumatic events in their lives deal with a unique set of emotional and spiritual issues that are clearly addressed in Scripture. It is our prayer that you will find the hope and healing that God alone can provide. (6 day devotional)

You Version - Our Daily Bread (Military Edition)
This special military edition of Our Daily Bread will take a look at some of life’s biggest questions. It is our prayer that you will turn to God’s Word to learn more about His Son Jesus. In Him we find real hope and meaning for life. We find a mission bigger than ourselves. (90 day devotional)

You Version - Wiser and Happier: Special Military Edition from Time of Grace
The experience of serving your country overseas--and sometimes seeing firsthand man’s inhumanity to man--may teach you important lessons about life while turning your stomach at the same time. But recognize that God has an even better way for us to learn life wisdom, a way that continually draws us closer to him no matter how far from family or church we might be. Because of his great love for us, he would much rather make us wiser through words. In this way we wouldn’t be sadder but wiser; we would be wiser and happier. The Bible’s book of Proverbs is an absolute gold mine of wisdom for the daily decisions you must make. It will help you develop your personal values and tune your life’s agenda more closely to resemble God’s. (37 day devotional)
