The Stage of Success

About 8 years ago I had a miscarriage. It did not rock my world as some miscarriages do to women or couples, however, it was a loss for both of us, regardless.

When that happened, I met a friend for coffee. She lead me into a bookstore, pulled a book off the shelf and said, “This is my gift to you.” It was God Calling, a daily devotional.

It can be a difficult read, written in 1930’s dialect, but if you can get past the language, the messages are incredible and very inspirational. When I first received the book and read that day’s reading, it blew me away. It had been written just for us.

I now have the God Calling app. It’s great tool in my pocket. It reminds me daily in case I forget to open it. I am amazed at how God finds ways to build my faith, how I am comforted and reassured. The readings since I was let go of my job have been unbelievably pointed. I want to share excerpts of them with you.

Thursday’s reading:


If you believe it is My Hand that has saved you, then you must believe that I am meaning to save you yet more, and to keep you in the way that you should go.

Even a human rescuer does not save a man from drowning only to place him in other deep and dangerous waters. But rather to place him on dry land — and more — there to restore him to animation and health, and to see him home.

From this parable learn what I your Rescuer would do, and even more. I complete every task committed to Me. So trust and be not afraid.

Friday’s reading:

Expect the Good

Can you get the expectant attitude of faith?

Not waiting for the next evil to befall you but awaiting with a child’s joyful trust the next good in store?

Today’s reading:

True Success

You are protected in all things. Rely on this and go forward. You have now entered upon the stage of success. You must not doubt this. You must see this. Beyond all doubt you must know it. It is true. It is sure. Have no pity for yourself, nothing but joy and gratitude.

These last few weeks have been the submerging before the consciousness of rescue. Go forward now and conquer. Go forward unafraid.

Delicious stuff, isn’t it? How can I doubt now?
