John 14:27-“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” (New Living Translation)
Herbert Bowen, Jr.
Voices Against the Grain Devotional Writer
It is an honor to be back after many asked, “Where are Herbert’s devotionals?” (In addition to Voices Against the Grain audiences, Herbert shares his devotionals to a growing reader list of 3,000+)
You didn’t make us, but God did. Hence, fall back into the dark pit from whence you came and be incinerated by the selfishness that was ignited through your flame. You can’t stop us, but God can. So, cease and desist your demands and decrees ‘cuz with God on our side our victory is guaranteed. You don’t understand us, but God does. Therefore, when He sees our spirits He blesses the path we tread, for we know that HE has already walked the journey ahead. You can’t break us, but God will. For He used you to bring us closer to HIM, before our lives became lost with the light in our eyes growing dim. So please remember that you helped us, which was constructed through God’s design. Amen
