[Joshua] said to the Israelites, “In the future when your descendants ask their parents, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.’” - Joshua 4:21-22 (NIV)
When I finished reading aloud a devotion to a friend, she reached into her coat pocket and pulled out a small, smooth, pink stone. She told me that she always carries it with her as a reminder to pause for reflection during the day — to give thanks to God...
Remembering God’s faithfulness in the past gives me hope for the future.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
