Today's Devotional Scripture

Today's Verse
Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
~Galatians 3:25 NIV
Thoughts on today's verse...
I'm a bit late posting today! I've been blessed with having two grandchildren spend the weekend. They are two and three years old and such a blessing, but I can assure you, I am abundantly aware why the Lord allows younger women to be moms and not us older ones (forgive me, Sarah... I couldn't have done what you did!). I also believe the Lord knew my limitations as the two children I do have are ten years apart in age.

Hanging on our refrigerator is a picture of three year old Abby's footprints with a little verse: "Walk a little slower, said a child oh so small, I'm walking in your footprints and I do not want to fall." That was her gift to her Grandpa for Father's Day. Then all this weekend, two year old Zachary steps in to any one's shoes that are left out and tries to walk in them. He stumbles, catches himself then continues on. Abby's refrigerator art and Zachary trying to fill our shoes makes me smile. But even more so, with reference to today's scripture verse admonishing us to "keep in step with the Spirit" - like Zachary, we sometimes stumble, we sometimes may even fall, but let us continue on trying to keep in step with the Spirit!
My prayer...
Abba, Father! Thank You so for today's verse and how it relates to our spiritual lives. May we walk in the Spirit and leave footprints in the lives of our children and grandchildren that will be worthy of following. Even so, Amen!

Yours, because we're His,
