Common Sense REBORN Devotion

December 27

10And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown.  They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.  (Revelation 20:10)

Happy Monday Family.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas weekend, celebrating the birth of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  I know in my last post, I had stated that “The Middle of a Miracle” was going to have two parts.  Unfortunately, we had a very busy weekend at work and the devil’s doings left me drained and almost discouraged.  But luckily, I serve the Lord of Resurrection and today is a new day, with new hope on the horizon.  But it’s time to move on to the promise of tomorrow, so “The Middle of a Miracle” has come to a shorter-than-planned end. If you missed that post, you can read it here.

Mrs. Z and I are excited to announce our plans for 2022.  We conquered the entire Holy Bible in 2021, but for the New Year, we will be doing some exploratory reading and tackling new books, new authors, and new gospels.  We have three books and two major collections selected right now.  For the first half of the year, we will spend two months reading each book.  And in the second part of 2022, we will be diving deeper in the God’s Hidden Gospels.  Here is our breakdown (each book is linked to its point-of-purchase):

January and February – “God, Do You Hear Me?” by Dr. Derwin Gray

March and April – “Unfettered” by Mandy Smith

May and June – “The Good Life” by Dr. Derwin Gray

July-September – The Gnostic Gospels

October – December – The Complete Apocrypha Collection of Lost and Rejected Scriptures

So in 2022, the Daily Devotion will come from the above works. We can’t wait to explore how God continued and continues to speak to His people and share that exploration with y’all!

And, finally, to wrap this year up, as I did last year, I present to you my Top 20 songs that debuted in the Christian music Genre, as well as my Top 5 full length albums.

Top 5 Albums:

5.  “Hymn of Heaven” by Phil Wickham

Mr. Wickham is one of my favorite male Christian artists and his newest work released this year was one of his best to date.

Top 20 Songs:

20.  “Say I Won’t” – MercyMe, this is the song that inspired our journey for 2021.  This was our challenge for the year, where others might have said we wouldn’t be able to have joy, prosperity, love, laughter, faith and purpose this year, we laughed and said “say I won’t.”

19.  “You’ve Done the Rest” – JUDAH.  

JUDAH.’s EP “7” released back in February was a short collection of beautiful alternative melodies.  Of those, this was definitely my favorite.
