31 Day Daily Burn Devotional
In a world where image is everything, one could easily become consumed in the everyday pressure to measure up. Many of us will try it all just to burn off the extra pounds. The special shakes, the wraps, even the pills but oh how short are the benefits! Sure all the good stewardship of exercising and wise eating will have its profits but is it really the best long term investment?
From the dust we came and to the dust we shall return.
For there is a greater discipline required of us. Our pursuit of healthy bodies shouldn’t cease but let’s be certain that our daily burn consists of more than just the physical.
Going Back to Amnon's House
All throughout 1st and 2nd Samuel, we read and marvel at the life of King David. Yet nestled between the triumphs and trials of this great king's journey lies a small story full of despoliation and violation. Tamar, the only mentioned daughter of King David experiences an act so violent that it leaves her desolate for the rest of her life. Using Tamar's story, Amnon's House takes you the reader on a journey of recovering from devastation. It's a journey that will require truth and a journey that will require one greater than yourself. "Sexual abuse may not be your story but devastation is common to us all."
