Short Devotions from Gini's Heart
Daily Devotional Series
The One True God - His Characteristics and Names, is a daily devotional consisting of 33 days on getting to know and love the One true God by studying His Characteristics and Names. The devotional covers 24 characteristics and 12 names of God, and a few others with less detail; it uses many Bible passages to substantiate the informative and interesting commentary, and it uses a number of amusing and meaningful illustrations.
Be anxious but do not sin is a devotional which consists of 10 days of study on anxiety, that talks about the psychological and physical definition of anxiety and how the definition fits with the Bible. It details anxiety and how anxiety is not sin, but instead the mind and body reacting to sensed fear. This is reaction anxiety. It also clarifies when anxiety becomes sin, or sinful anxiety. It covers when and how anxiety started. Matthew 6 and Philippians 4 are used to show you how to be anxious without sin. It also gives four Biblical principles with applications on how to stop sinful anxiety and lessen reaction anxiety. It also explains how Jesus had reaction anxiety and how He dealt with it, and wants to help us with our anxiety.
The free daily devotional, "God Loves You and Me," consists of 60 daily devotions that are organized under twelve lessons taken from the study on God’s love. Each day covers one or two different ways God loves us. This daily devotional has new insights and additional information, as well as more illustrations than my study about God's love does. It is also being made into a book like the daily devotional The One True God - His Characteristics and Names, so it will evolve on my website as I put the book together. We will try to keep the revision date current.
In this 11 day Daily Devotional Series on forgiveness, I will answer questions such as: What is the most undeserved forgiveness? Why and how to forgive as a Christian? How forgiving is misunderstood? How important is forgiveness to our well-being and health? Why is not forgiving a sin? Studying forgiveness from God's standpoint and applying it to our lives will make us more like Christ, and believe it or not, much happier people.
