Bible Monday 9/19: Our Chaos, His Calm

Psalm 80:1-19. What sorrows have been my food and drink in God's severe mercy to bring me nearer him (verse 5)?

Job 26:1-14. Going through this day, how can I share in Job's awe and reverence at our Creator who made everything from nothing, ordered it all, and governs it all even now?

II Corinthians 1:1-11. Who among my pastors, teachers, and mentors in the faith may need my prayer-help today (verse 11)?

Luke 8:22-25. Here Jesus, summoned by his disciples into their chaos, instead draws them into his calm. To what situation in my life can this apply?

These are some of the questions I asked myself in studying this morning's four readings from the  St. James Daily Devotional Guide. Where is your self-examination leading today?
