All too often we’ve purchased devotional books and gone through them on our own. The devotional group gives you the wonderful opportunity of growing closer to God with more than the assistance of a book. Join me, the author, for thirty days of going deeper into the material. I’m prepared to share with you much more than is within the pages.
Sure there is so much to offer you within Continue, but more can be a really good thing. That’s what you’ll get in the group, more. Along with your devotional guide book, you’ll experience the content more thoroughly as I share more with you via video.
That’s right, every day you can not only read daily devotional, complete the written work, but you’ll also be able to watch a video that will give you greater insight and help you gain, regain, or maintain the courage, strength, and boldness to walk with God through every situation.
How Does It Work?
Your CONTINUE Devotional experience begins when you decide you will thrive.
When I wrote the daily lessons of this devotional I was going through one of the toughest times in my life. I had been dealing with a lot of stress, a family member that was very dear to my heart passed away, and on top of that I had begun having panic attacks. I had never been in this place before. I had never been in a position where I had to live by faith while my body and mind seemed to be fighting against me.
Sure, I had had plenty of tests and trials that I had overcome, but not one like this that accosted me so severely both physically and mentally. It was obvious to me that I was not going to fight the good fight of faith in this situation in my own strength. So what did I do? I did what I had learned to do over walking with God for so many years. I leaned into God and His word. I have said many times in my life, that if it wasn’t for God and His word I would have lost my mind a long time ago. Why would I say something like that? I say it because it’s the truth. I say it because the pain that I have experienced has been so deep that nothing could keep me sane, but God and His word.
Continue is the product, the fruit, of abiding in the True Vine. The Apostle Paul said it this way in 2 Corinthians 12:9, “But he said to me, “my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” In my weakness His power was made perfect and the truth of His word poured from me as a wellspring. While I was going through, He was with me, as He always is.
