Bits of Pasture {Free Devotional}

Bits of Pasture - Free DevotionalA new year brings new goals, new plans, and renewed determination.  What a better time to start a new devotional?

Bits of Pasture: Handfuls of Grass for the Lord’s Hungry Sheep by J.R. Miller is an oldie, but a goodie by the author of Home-Making (also published as The Family).   Simple daily readings were complied from Dr. Miller’s sermons, having been read “during several shut-in years.”

Because stimulus and counsel, comfort and sunshine, have been found in these handfuls, with the earnest hope that they may go on, each day blessing and helping others to bless, they are tied together “in His name.”

Each daily offering is short, but contemplative, covering themes such as

  • The Lord Will Provide
  • An Eye for Motes
  • Being–Doing
  • Serving Christ at Home
  • The Beauty Within
  • What to Do With Injuries
  • Learning Meekness
  • True Womanhood
  • The Heart’s Daily Bread
  • Uplifting Power
  • God’s Strange Schools
  • Beauties of Nature
  • Keeping a Child’s Heart
  • Christ-likeness at Home
  • Blessing of Daily Crosses
  • Loving Unlovely People
  • Trust Better Than Questions
  • Finishing Our Work

and enough others to round out one full year of readings that will particularly appeal to a homeschool mom.

While fulfilling the promise, “I will feed my flock,” the Shepherd may not lead us by waters of rest and quietness all the way. But always, according to our need, there are bits of pasture, and cheered and strengthened by these earnests of “green pastures” and “still waters,” we follow on.
