for Wives of Faith's new blog feature:
We are looking for a 200-400-word devotional thought: a main Scripture verse, a paragraph or two, and a 2-3 line prayer. While the sample below is a generic one, we'd love for your devotional to be relevant in some way to the military wife life: something that God has shown you in your Bible reading, or a lesson you have learned that you'd love to share.
Email completed devotions to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll give you a byline. We ask that you follow our writing guidelines (except of course for the word length) as outlined on our site (http://www.wivesoffaith.org/next-steps/write-for-wives-of-faith/writing-guidelines).
Devotionals will be featured on the “In Focus” window on the front page of www.wivesoffaith.org
Thanks for your writing and your willingness to serve!

Listen . . . and Build Trust
People often say, “I wish I knew what God wants me to do.” If you have heard or thought those words, you aren’t alone. Sometimes I’ve longed to know which direction to go next. However, I’ve never audibly heard God speak, or tell me exactly the next step to take. Instead, discerning the path God has set requires an ongoing process to clarify God’s leading.
