Blessings or Lessons Devotional Kit

I am *loving* these new Journaling Bible kits from Illustrated Faith & Dayspring! I received the latest one last week and have enjoyed diving in. It’s just like a little gift to yourself to open each month. Washi tape, short devotionals, Scripture cards, a set of stamps…and did I say washi tape? Swoon.

This latest devotional kit called Blessings or Lessons reminds me of counting my blessings…naming my gifts…listing the things I’m thankful for…naming them one by one.

And honestly, lessons CAN be blessings, yes?? Usually that’s how God ends up working out those lessons in our lives!

New Journaling Bible Kit from Dayspring

I love the reference to John 15 in this devotional. I’ve done a lot of thinking about HOME and GOD and how our hearts are TRULY at home in Christ. {See this series on HOME from last fall.}

God the Father is our true VINE. We must ABIDE and DWELL in Him to stay close to Him and walk in the Spirit.

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. 17 This is my command: Love each other. John 15:1-17.
