Devotional Journaling #8

I am reading two devotionals this year. One is Living Hope for the End of Days: 365 Days of Devotions from the Book of the Revelation by John Samuel Barnett. The other is Joni Eareckson Tada's Diamonds in the Dust.

Living Hope for the End of Days. This week's theme was "Look Into Christ's Eyes."

  • Have you ever wondered what it would be like to personally look into the eyes of Jesus Christ?

Yes. So has anyone who has ever listened to Steven Curtis Chapman. His Eyes is actually a great song. 

Diamonds in the Dust. 

  • When you read a book like Ezekiel, Daniel, or even the book of Revelation, please don't be confused by the strange and mysterious descriptions of God, or heaven, or terrifying accounts of the last days. These descriptions are man's best effort to explain the unexplainable. Instead of avoiding those books, rejoice that your God is high and lifted up, and will never be reduced to terms that we can manage. (February 19)
  • Happiness is fleeting and elusive, but joy is an overflow of the perseverance and hope that comes from demonstrating faithful sacrifice and committed service. (February 22)
