Exploring life in Christ — the-OneThing


Emily, the main character in Dangerous Exposure, the first book in the Everton series where things aren’t always as they appear, will reach a point where all she has to do is cling to a tiny, little bit of faith, but the choice could kill her.

I think we all go through moments or even seasons when choosing faith in God over what we want most seems like it will kill us. Maybe not literally, but inside our hearts. As for me, there have been times in my life when choosing God’s way meant laying down something I desperately wanted and thought I needed.

Who knows, maybe this week you’re feeling at the end of your rope and need a tiny, little bit of faith, so you can hold out until the Lord steps in. If that is you, or for when that moment circles back into your life…

…I have some encouragement for you in the form of 1 story, 3 songs, and 1 question.


1 Story

King Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the image of gold I have set up? Now when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe, and all kinds of music, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image I made, very good. But if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?”


Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” — Daniel 3:14-20
