Devotion - love, loyalty, enthusiasm for God, worship, prayers
I admit that I was not always devoted to God. I have believed in Jesus my whole life, but I didn't really know or follow Him. It wasn't until our church did 40 Days of Purpose that I started to understand and do God's will. Clumsily, like a child, I started with church skits and then co-led several women's retreats. Later, I directed plays, and more recently I've been leading Bible studies and writing devotions. God has taught me through each experience, using one to build on another. I am amazed at God's tender, patient teaching!
God continues to work in me, pushing me to love more and to step out in faith more. I am still a work in progress, but because of God's faithfulness and love, I am devoted to Him.
"We love him, because he first loved us." 1 John 4:19
Father, draw me ever closer. Let my devotion show. Let others see You in me. In Jesus' name. Amen.
