Devotional - Saturday, December 30, 2017 364/1

Today's Scripture: "Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out." Pr. 20:5
6039. Anything worthwhile takes time and patience. JG

See it.

Secret recipe

Live it.

There is probably no better Scripture than this one to describe the truisms I call "Jimisms." After receiving a call this morning to pray for someone in the hospital with a weakened heart, I searched Scripture and prayed for him, his caregivers and his family. I added my references to the TOPIC file for future reference. This process was reversed from what I normally do each morning.

The process of creating one of the 6,039 devotions called, Just Thinkin', is one I like to teach: 1) Look at new Scripture, 2) What is the meaning to you? 3) Write down how God has taught you this principle, 4) Pray the truth in one sentence, 5) Add three reference words to enable a topical search, 6) Attach a photo of what supports the truth and finally, 7) create a short and related truism reflecting the verse without using religious words. That way the word is heard by people who aren't expecting it and who are inclined to hear more.

Pray it.

Thank You, God, for teaching me everything I need to know and how to use it to glorify You.
