Daily Devotion – A Choice to Walk in the Light

I’m a snooze button kind of girl. Every night I set my alarm with the best of intentions, and every morning I’m tapping that button just hoping to get a little more sleep.

Getting up is the first choice of the day. Then we decide what we’ll put on and what we’ll have for breakfast. That’s only 3 of the estimated 35,000 choices we make every day. With that many choices, we have an opportunity to not only shape our day, but to change the world in small ways by shining our light for the glory of God.

And so, today I will…
Encourage more, nag less
Pray more, worry less
Listen more, fight less
Kiss more, complain less
Laugh more, stress less
Sing more, sigh less
Love more, never less

As we’ve been called to the light, let us also choose to walk in that light. Choosing to live as Christ lived. Choosing to love as He loves.

Planting Hope

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. (1 Peter 2:9, KJV)

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.

She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.

It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical FitnessReshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.

Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
