Adult Morning Devotion

 

Authentic

Written by Shawn Boonstra
SGD $25.00
 
Each entry in Authentic is a moment of reflection, a brief peek at one small facet of the stunning picture of Jesus provided to us in the three angels’ messages.
 
In preparing to claim the belief of the Adventist movement as the foundation for their faith, baptismal candidates are asked to claim thirteen vows as their own. This new devotional by Pastor Shawn Boonstra is dedicated to highlighting these thirteen truths in the light of glory of Jesus Christ, our Creator and our Redeemer.
 
According to Boonstra, understanding our Adventist doctrines—from the sanctuary and the Sabbath to the health message and the state of the dead—leads us to a better understanding of the mind of God and to a more intimate knowledge of Christ.
 
Pastor Boonstra states, “It is my prayer for you this year, that you will find yourself drawn ever closer to the One who stepped down from glory to be closer to you.”

Adult Evening Devotion

 

God’s Amazing Grace

Written by Ellen G. White
SGD $25.00
 
As we make Christ our daily companion we shall feel that the powers of an unseen world are all around us; and by looking unto Jesus we shall become assimilated to His image. By beholding we become changed. The character is softened, refined, and ennobled…The soul that turns to God for its help, its support, its power, by daily, earnest prayer, will have noble aspirations, clear perceptions of truth and duty, lofty purposes of action, and a continual hungering and thirsting after righteousness. By maintaining a connection with God, we shall be enabled to diffuse to others, through our association with them, the light, the peace, the serenity, that rule in our hearts” (p. 290).

Conviction

Written by Troy Fitzgerald SGD $10.00
 
Conviction is refined in the fires of effort, failure, faith and hope. While conviction is a matter of the heart, it is also displayed on your sleeve.

You will discover what the relationship is between the Holy Spirit, the conscience, and the person you are called to be—and how you can be resolute, sure, and confident in your faith. As you stir, think, and practice a life of conviction, your faith will deepen and your heart will grow in Christ.

Teens Devotion

 

Here I Am

Written by Natalie Dorland SGD $15.00
 
With God, there is no age discrimination. As with Samuel, God often calls youth to do big things for Him. In fact, throughout the Bible, and throughout history, God has chosen young people to be His torchbearers, forging a path for truth to flourish.
 
Here I Am, a daily devotional for teens, will help you recognize your potential for greatness with with God. You’ve seen enough to know that the world is an evil place in need of God’s love. You sense in your peers a desperation for justice. You want to make a difference. Make your devotions personal. Take time each day to be alone with God. He may be calling to your heart.
 
Your relationship with God is an adventure, and the way you communicate with Him will be different on some days than others. Read your Bible. Spend time in nature. Write down your thoughts and feelings. Sing and pray. And listen carefully. What is His voice saying? Can you hear it? Will you say, with Samuel, “Speak, for Your servant hears” (1 Samuel 3:10, NKJV)?

Women’s Devotion

 

In His Presence

Written by Carolyn Rathbun Sutton
SGD $20.00
 
When life’s uncertainties overwhelm us, we may momentarily forget that an unshakeable refuge is always close by. From it flows only good things. That refuge is Jesus. When we keep our eyes on Him, He will guide us through life’s darkest days and nights. He, who is head-over-heels in love with us, wants us to understand that He is always by our side and constantly provides for our needs.
 
Furthermore, Jesus promises never to abandon us as He leads us toward brighter days ahead. Along the journey, He will teach us how to live like He did. Then, as with the apostles of old, others around us will be able to tell where we have been spending our time-with Him.
 
So be blessed as you walk through these inspirational stories written by women who have rediscovered an ever-present Friend—and love like they’ve never known. Experience their joy and unspeakable delight as they’re surprised by the evidence that the One who loves them best is always near. In 365 different ways, the confident voices of God’s daughters around the world declare, “I will not be shaken for I am living in His presence.”

Sensational “Quotational” Devotional

Written by Kim Peckham SGD $15.00
 
Sometimes quotes can be funny. Sometimes they can be inspiring. Sometimes they are famous. And sometimes, they make us stop and think. Each daily devotion in Sensational Quotational Devotional begins with a quotation. You will recognize some of them, such as:
 
Curiosity killed the cat, Early to bed, early to rise . . . , Cleanliness is next to godliness. Some of them won’t be as recognizable:
I grew up like a neglected weed, ignorant of liberty. He who has overcome his fears will truly be free. The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.
But all are meant to make you stop and think, to examine your values and the choices you make each and every day. Most of these quotes are by famous people. Some of them have been credited through tradition. Some of them were by someone too insignificant to remember.
 
You don’t have to be famous to make a difference. While each day begins with a quotation, it ends with a Bible verse, reminding us that true wisdom comes only from God. If we spend time with Him, anyone—even an anonymous preteen—can make a difference.
