April 2021 ~ Believe & Faith

This printable provides one verse per day, throughout the month of April, for you (or you and your family) to read, contemplate, and pray.

Good Soil

Soon it will be time to plant our garden.  While still new at this, it brought such delight to our hearts last summer to just step outside and be able to pull basil leaves, parsley, oregano, or even peppers and tomatoes.  But as I look at the garden-to-be, reality sets in: it needs some work.   I am reminded of the parable told by Jesus of the sower, the seed, and the soil.  These verses have...

Flourishing

Aren’t you so grateful to know that your story is not over?  That regardless of how things appear today, in this moment, you have a God who is in control and working all things out for His glory and your good? I sure am.  And I find such comfort - and hope - in today’s verses: “The godly grow like a palm tree; they grow high like a cedar in Lebanon.  Planted in the Lord’s house, they...
