Pam's Devotions from the Heart

In the quiet time of my life in prayer and meditation, I felt impressed to write devotions. I had just brought my husband in from a long hospital stay after being diagnosed with congestion heart failure and staying in ICU I was very tired. I stayed so close to him. When doctors said he wasn't going to make it, I just kept praying and calling for prayer, going to the chapel, seeking God. When he began to get better, I knew then God was going to help him and give him more time, but I didn't stop praying. I continued on. Then we found out he had to be transferred to another hospital for an emergency surgery for a triple bypass, so I felt a lot of comfort from God and just kept on praying and asking for prayer and always calling for prayer, going to find the chapel, spending time in the quiet chapel on my knees, crying and praying. He was at that hospital for about a month.

Finally, back to my home in the country, while I took care of him while he was asleep and resting. Throughout the day and evening, God laid it on my heart to write devotions. I realized I needed healing to after all that, and I had went through several hurts in life, so it got to be kind of healing for me to write devotions. Late in the evening, I would read some of them to my husband, Paul, and he liked them. I would write them only when I had quiet times. It began to bring healing in my life.

My devotions are about my Christian raising growing up, like my parents, some about my family, which is about my kids and grandkids, faith-building scriptures and biblical stories, and about myself. I hope my book gives you more hope, love, faith, a stronger dedication, and a real seriousness of Jesus Christ.

Love in Christ,

Pam
