1 & 2 Timothy and Titus: Day 20

Grace Day


Today's Text: Hebrews 6:17-19

Use this day to pray, rest, and reflect on this week’s reading, giving thanks for the grace that is ours in Christ.

Because God wanted to show his unchangeable purpose even more clearly to the heirs of the promise, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that through two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to seize the hope set before us. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
—Hebrews 6:17-19

    I’m running late for work this morning and knew doing my reading today would make me even more late…I opened today’s reading anyway and felt so humbled it’s a grace day. These days always happen when I most need them and it’s just a beautiful example of how God gives us grace when we least expect it and deserve it!

  • I just snuck a peek at Psalms for Prayer—- Beautiful!! We are in for a special study— thanks. SRT

  • So grateful for a grace day! I was up way too late waiting for my son who was hanging out with a bunch of kids from the youth group. Off for a short morning run as I meeting with my accountability partner who has given me some homework. I have a bunch of reading to catch up. So grateful that she’s patient with me and I can catch up on my reading later.

  • Prom duty!! As retired high school teacher— small southern school prom was so much fun, my favorite place to be was the greeter!! Probably have 25 proms as great memories—- some years it was a “chore”— my husband was in hospital one year with broken leg— I was junior sponsor— but looking back— it was a gift from God to be there as 100’s of beautiful teens enjoyed that right of passage——

  • This is so timely, (but isn’t that the way our Papa God tends to work!) My husband is the youth and children’s pastor at our church. We have been there almost 22 years. For the last year we have been without a pastor. We now have a prospective pastor. We have met him and his wife and really liked him. He is much younger than us and this will be his first time as a senior pastor. I have some anxiety about all this that I haven’t shared with anyone except my husband. I share it now with all of you because this is a safe place and I have felt the power of your prayers before. My anxiousness comes from the fear that once he gets here he will decide to “clean house”. Those were the words used by our music minister’s wife. (They’re the same age as us.) Even though the new pastor said that he had no intention of doing that and the search committee were quick to reassure us, she and her husband said that we need to just “get ready because it’s probably going to happen; sorry to burst your bubble.” (And thank you for sharing that!)
    Anyway, that’s probably way more information than you wanted to read! Please pray for Roger and me during this time of change and transition. We are very excited about this new beginning for our church. Roger isn’t worried about it and really I don’t have a lot of anxiety – it isn’t something I dwell on – but when I do think about it I get a little nauseous. I know and believe with all my heart that God has got all of this. He is my Anchor and I can trust Him. Thank you all for your prayers. I will keep you posted.
    Woo hoo! It’s Saturday and it’s Prom night and since I teach high school I have prom duty tonight from 9:45 until 11:30. (I’m usually in bed by 10.) It’s an experience every adult should have to have at least once!
    Have a blessed Saturday!

      Will pray for your and your husband. Thank you for such faithful ministry. Think of all the lives you have impacted and will continue to impact! I’m confident your years of experience and expertise will be appreciated by this new pastor.

    Perfect reminder of His steadfast love for us.

    My husband and I are heading into a new season in our lives. With it comes change, some of which we can anticipate, some which we cannot. The ground feels a bit unsure. In seasons past, we have taken confident steps but as we embark into this one we find ourselves being cautious and a bit tentative. How reassuring however that we can rely on the promises of God as we begin to navigate this new territory. We anchor ourselves to Him and trust He will guide us on the way. Though the waters may get stormy, we know we will not capsize.

    • Susan

      I too have a lot of things that seem unsettled as I look at the horizon. But I know Who holds my hand and Who guides my tomorrows, just as He has ordered my today. Some things I feel brought on by myself, others just seasons of change in life. But regardless of what I face, He has always been patient with me throughout my stubborn obedience and never let me wander too far off the purposed path for my life. I will pay for peace for you and our husband on your journey together as God leads as well as peace for myself! Happy Saturday, Susan from Michigan
