1 Peter 1:3-4: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable  and undefiled and will not fade away,..". (NASB)

New Year Blessings!

This year our devotional focus is based on the gift of "living hope and sure salvation" as our theme. And will be hearing the words through a more modern scripture version, although I am still using any reference to "Him" as capitals although the translation uses lower case version in print.

The 1st and 2nd Peter scripture passages are from the Passion Translation, and the Psalm verses are from the NASB version.

Thank you for participating in our journey. Please share as you discover your own questions and insights, prose, and prayers.

Reborn: 1 Peter:Prayers and Poetry

Reading: 1 Peter 1:1-3: " the chosen ones who have been scattered like 'seeds' into the nations living as refugees...". "You are not forgotten, for you have been chosen and destined by Father God. .... For His foundation of mercy has given us a new life--we are reborn...".


The apostle Peter begins by reminding us that wherever we are the Lord is present too. We are in His hands--by His choice.

Not one of us is forgotten by Him or left alone. His seeds remain--even when we cannot see them.

Even though we may, or may not, see the growth or the harvest; He includes us as His holy ones, and shows us His costly mercy and a living hope.

Lord, we ask that we may learn to listen and follow Your words through Your Spirit as You guide wherever You send us. Day by day--step by step. Thank you for never abandoning us in any situation. That we are never alone. Even when we think we are.

Open our hearts to realize these blessings and live into it with gratitude and kindness and faith daily.

Your thoughts,
