Live your lives in [Christ], rooted and built up in him and established in the faith. - Colossians 2:6-7 (NRSV)
When I was a freshman in high school, my dad lost his job. He had survived a stroke, but his employer thought he wasn’t up to the task anymore. We were going through hard times as my parents’ savings account kept dwindling the longer my father was out of work....
When I feel reluctant, God is still at work in me.

The Upper Room lifts the spirits of residents I serve as a correctional chaplain. Christians and non-Christians read the devotions, reminding them of an alternative path to a loving God that will walk alongside them through the good and ugly of life.”
The Upper Room Chaplains’ Ministry provides military, VA hospital, and prison chaplains copies of the daily devotional for their ministry. Give today to support the Chaplains’ Ministry.
