Psalm 116: A 30-day Devotional on Rescue, Redemption and the Life We Live in Response

by Kyle Burkholder

In Psalm 116, David recalls a troubling season of life, where sorrow overshadowed salvation and death seemed much closer than deliverance. In recounting God’s rescue and redemption in his life, David then pivots to praising God. He seeks a way to live his life as a thank offering to God for the graciousness and deep blessing he had received.

We, too, face troubling seasons, deep trials, and moments of acute crisis. And we have also been rescued and redeemed through the gracious work of Jesus Christ. As we remember our own seasons of struggle, we can be encouraged that we are never alone. Then, like David, we can ask the question of how we might live in response to the incredible blessing we have in Jesus.

This month-long devotional intends to bring us to a place of remembrance of our own rescue by God so that we might be launched into a life that is a worthy response to His gift.

My prayer is that Psalm 116 will find us becoming reacquainted with our trials, reminded of our blessings, and recommitted to living the life we’re called to as children of God.

Wattles often travelled to Chicago, where he gave “Sunday night lectures” among several leading New Thought authors. He studied the writings of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and Ralph Waldo Emerson and recommended the study of their books to his readers who wished to understand what he characterized as “the monistic theory of the cosmos.” Wattles’ best known work is a 1910 book called The Science of Getting Rich in which he explained how to become wealthy.

Cost of Redemption

by Jacie Middlemann

â?¦.In the midst of a seemingly standard investigation two police detectives come across information that one of them believes may be connected to a forty-year-old unsolved crime. As they move forward in their pursuit for answers they find that for some of their questions there are none. And that some of the answers they obtain are not at all what they would have expected in the course of a normal investigation.

â?¦.Life is a series of choices. One man spends half a lifetime trying to redeem a choice that wreaked untold devastation beyond anything he could have imagined. His ignorance had drawn him and others but could never be a defense for what had taken place.

He’d sought justice for those who couldn’t. Shared his wealth without questions or condition. Was friend to all who had need and those as well who believed they had allâ?¦yet often had far less.

Now decades later he once again seeks the protection and wisdom found all those years ago on the mountain. Near the very peak to which he had once climbed seeking refuge and redemption. Will he find it?

Pursuing The Governess

by Charity McColl

When a simple governess pulled from the dregs of 1800 London is thrown into fine society no one expected that she would attract the attentions of one of London’s noblest catches – much to the consternation of those of better heritage that now surround her…

For five cruel years Martha Nash is forced to live among the dregs of society in the alleyways of London. Such crowded and mean streets are no place for a woman.

Driven to despair she is caught stealing a loaf of bread and finds herself in Newgate Prison awaiting an awful fate.

Then, as if by a miracle, she is released into the custody of the fine society woman, Lady Juliana, and becomes an indispensible companion to her mistress, and a governess to her children.

All seems well until the dashing Carlton Southey walks into their lives, throwing the lowly governess into an uncertain whirlwind of love, jealousy and passion that stands in the face of a world that says such things should simply not be.
