It's devotional carnival time again! Which means I get to come read your thoughts, insights and prayers at your blog.
This month's topic is slightly off the beaten path. But it's one of the things I was speaking on last week (see the last post, and do tell what you have to keep perfect). It's STABILITY. Think about it ... God is certainly stable, and therefore, consistently following Him should bring some measure of stability to our lives. Right? No? What are your thoughts on or experiences with this? What does scripture say?
Just yesterday I read this quote by Lauren Winner, author of Girl Meets God, "Stability may be the virtue that 21st-century Christians most ignore - and the virture we are most called to embrace."

I chose this topic last month and preannounced it so maybe you've already been thinking about it. If not, don't worry, you're going to have extra time this month to write and link your devotion. I'll be on the road most of the day on Monday, headed to Williamsburg, VA. And my day on Tuesday is full. So you'll have until midnight on Wednesday to join in the carnival here. On Thursday I'll draw a winner for the novel.
What novel you ask? This month's She Reads pick ... one of the hottest books on the Christian fiction market this month. A massive novel at nearly 500 pages, plus group discussion guide. It's Francine River's latest release: Her Mother's Hope. And it's a $25 value. It's yours if you link your devotion here by the end of Wednesday, post a comment below, and I randomly select your comment to win.
Some quick instructions: Write anything you want touching on stability, but be sure to include a key verse, keep it under 700 words, and mention you’re participating in this carnival. Then leave a comment answering the question I posed in my previous post – What in your life or house “has” to be perfect?
