Please note: Since some areas are experiencing near-epidemic proportions of flu, for today’s encore, we present a brief but poignant devotional, that seems to be apropos.
Stomach aches might not seem like a great devotional topic but since I have one it is what's on my mind. I am actually thankful for this one. You see I got up this morning with my stomach bothering me. I needed to do a lot of different things this morning but didn't do them. I just sat there. And while I sat there I started talking to God. And then I just sat there and listened for awhile. Sometimes I rush around too much to talk to God or to hear from him. Sometimes God allows stomach aches or other such things to come into our life so we will take a timeout.
Listen carefully. God still speaks. "Be still, and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10)
