Week 48, 2021

A black hole. That’s what it seems like at times in our personal lives.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) defines a “Black Hole” as “A place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light cannot get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. And because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes. They are invisible.”

That’s it. That’s what life seems like at times—pulled and squeezed at every possible point, with not a bit of light anywhere, darkness all around and deep within. Even the “invisible” part of the definition fits—finding it hard many times to identify what it is causing the darkness in our lives and hearts.

Have you found the Light for your live?


Prayer for Jeremy Stopford.

Prayer time: Retired pastor Jeremy Stopford was unable to provide a devotional this week because he has contracted Covid 19. Please pray for Jeremy (“Moxie”) Stopford and his wife Thuvia as they move through this challenge to their service in Christ.

“My Goodness!”

By Jeremy Stopford, Semi-retired pastor

What does “MY GOODNESS” mean as it relates to our Great God? If you were to read the text surrounding Exodus 33:19-20, in particular verses 12-23, you will quickly notice that Moses had an amazing intimacy with the Lord! And the heart of Scripture shows that intimacy with the Lord is available to ALL of God’s children. Notice the Lord’s intimacy with Moses! He says (verses 13, 16, “I am pleased with you”. Wow! Now THAT’S intimate!

And that is not all, God also says ….

After you've read "Saving Jesus," please give me your feedback. Thanks!
