October 11

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

Colossians 3:23-25, kjv
Mother Teresa shared this during her lifetime.

People are often unreasonable and self-centered.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.

My heart is saddened this day Lord as I have been what appears to be intentionally misinformed and a service misrepresented to me that was dear to my heart. My response was shock, then tears, then the reminder that it is not my burden to bear. The occurrence between me and the individuals who I feel manipulated me never was between me and them. It was and always will be between THEM and YOU.

Thank you Father for reminding me that you "always" have my back and I need to be more concerned with my actions and reactions that I may "only" draw people to You and not push them away from You because of improper behavior on my part. Father I pray you have mercy on those that chose to misrepresent themselves and in doing so hurting my soul. Bless them. Open their eyes to see through the eyes of those they are dealing with and in doing so please touch their hearts to be more honest and sensitive. May You direct them toward having a heart after Your own heart that they too, may bring joy into others lives.

My name is Pam. I am 61 years old. I am the blessed mother of 7 children (6 girls and 1 boy) (4 which are adopted daughters) and, yes, the baby is the boy. They range in age from 23 to 41. I have been married to my best friend for 43 years. We have 14 grandchildren.

In 2003 I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, Stage 3, Aggressive, Difuse, Large B Cell Cancer. I was not overwhelmed by the diagnosis because I KNEW something was wrong with me. The Holy Spirit was nudging me to find out what. I have lived a very healthy life without drugs, alcohol, smoking and I married my high school sweetheart. RATHER when the diagnosis came after THREE YEARS of searching my comment was: Finally, now we know what it is.

I went through a strong 6-month chemotherapy and as with most cancer patients lost all my hair, and went from a size 12 down to a skinny size 4.

I knew then and know now that God has an appointed day for my departure from this earth. So I suppose you would call me the eternal optimist since either way I win! If I stay here I have more time to touch other lives for Jesus and if I die, Oh Hallelujah what a day that will be!

One way I dealt with my cancer was to make fun of it. I told people when I was bald, Hey, what's the problem? I never have a bad hair day! Or, Who needs makeup when you don't have any eyebrows or eyelashes? And, finally, I said, Who wouldn't love to avoid the tasks of shaving under their arms and legs? No hair-No shaving! My final comment used to leave people chuckling as I told them I did not have a cast to boast of my injury, but I'd gladly give them a marker and they could sign my shiny bald head! Cancer is tough but God is greater!

Actually, the above sounds awesome but in reality I went into a depression a year after my cancer. You see I am a people person. I worked in a law firm with 119 attorneys and their staff. We took up 10 floors of the Sun Trust Building and when everything stopped I was suddenly alone.

What is a devotion?

A devotional is short one-page writing about a topic related to the Christian faith and life. They usually have a Bible verse or two on which they are based and are not, due to their brevity on 'heavy' theological topics but provide words of encouragement or challenging and inspiring thoughts. Many devotional writings also contain illustrations from everyday life and then relate that to Christian living.

Showing Devotions for Today

When you click on the "Today" button within an authors library, the authors devotion designated for today will be displayed.

This will ONLY work if the author has included the Month and Day somewhere within the devotional title.

Enabling your Devotion for the "Today" function
In order to use the "Today" button to have a devotion for today displayed, you simply need to add the Month and Day somewhere in your title. The" Month Day" may be placed anywhere within your title, as long as you maintain the correct format:

Correct Formats: "May 27" or "November 6" or "April 23"
Wrong Formats: "May, 27" or "11/2" or "Nov 6"

Adding the Month Day to your title will enable it to be displayed when someone clicks the "Today" button.

What happens when I choose to follow an Author?

Following an Author allows you to stay up today with the authors latest devotions. When that author adds a new devotion you will receive a PM and an optional email alert. You can view and edit your followed authors on the My Followed Authors page.

How does recommending a devotional work?

You can only recommend a devotional ONCE per day and you cannot recommend your own devotional.

The author gets sent a PM letting them know that someone found his/her devotional inspirational, encouraging or helpful. This information is also used to help us better organize our devotions.

Adding devotions should NOT become a contest, but a way to give the Glory back to the Lord in showing how he has worked in your life.

I keep getting the message "Sorry, you cannot recommend your own devotional"?

To be fair, you cannot recommend your own devotional. If you are seeing this message and it is not your devotional, it could be that the author's IP and your IP addresses are the same, which could be from sharing same internet connection (same house). This can be fixed by logging into your account.

An IP (Internet Protocol) is your address on the web, kind of like your phone number for your current connection.

Wait, What?
To be able to allow people to recommend devotionals without being logged in, your IP address is compared to the devotional IP from its creation. This allows people to Recommend your devotional without having to sign in, but this also means users on the same IP cannot recommend each other's stories, UNLESS you are logged in to to a seperate account.

What happens when I delete one of my devotions?

Your devotional will remain in the system until a devotional purge. When a devotional purge happens, all member devotions marked for deletion from the system will be permanently removed.

Until that happens, this deleted devotional will still remain in your library, marked as "deleted" and will only be visible to you.

You can un-delete this devotional by clicking on the button "Un-Delete This Page", located at the bottom of the banned or removed heading box.
