Good Morning!

Several months ago I mentioned a simple method of meditating on the Scriptures: READ a passage; RECORD the facts; REFLECT upon the implications of the facts; RESPOND by applying one of those implications to your life.

You may want to employ these four "R's" to the following passages during your devotions:+

Acts 17:24 - 27 God made and controls all

Luke 7:11 - 17 Jesus raises the widow's son

Luke 8:22-25 Jesus calms the storm

1 Corinthians 15:3 - 8 Jesus rose and appeared
