  1. We don’t as God’s Children know all nor will we ever know it all. Or ever get to know it all. But as followers of God’s it good to stay people who are curious to stay to our life times end following Jesus and what God has in Jesus for him for to do for him. To further his Kingdom so others will want to know what we have and come to know Jesus for themselves and live for Jesus the rest of their days. Know their sins are forgiven and they are going to Glory one day to be with him. So we have as followers of Jesus stay curious. The way to do that is through the Holy Spirit in reading his word the Bible and saying our Prayers every day and spending time with Jesus. Letting God’s Holy Spirit speak to us show us how to live for him. So that is how we get to be curious and stay curious to find out all Jesus has for us. I say Amen to that. Love today’s reading. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little Enniskillen Co.Fermanagh N.Ireland. keeping you all incourage in prayer ❤️

  2. Rachel, this is wonderful! Thank you for sharing, encouraging & challenging us this morning! Blessings (((0)))

  3. I have a challenge with the appearance of lack. My heart goes out to young females in today’s society. All the cosmetic tips and magazine articles suggest that there is a lot to cover up or re-do to get accepted by others. This can be a long and expensive process from the ages of 13 – 30 (and beyond). We have been persuaded that we are not quite enough to be valuable. It’s certainly not true !

    I’m just now learning that maybe I should have voiced my point of view in my earlier years. I have three daughters and they enjoy dressing up and going out with their friends. But it’s great to be with your friends even if you don’t have extra funds. You can be with them wearing whatever is comfortable (though it may not be new). You can order soup and salad. Our education and our checking accounts don’t tell the whole story. Our Creator tells us who we truly are from day to day. Let’s learn to live our lives by the Grace that God Has Poured Into Our Hearts. He is our Heavenly Father so we don’t have to try so hard . . .

    We are His Beloved Daughters if we have surrendered our hearts to Him.

    With Gratitude,

    Your More Seasoned Sister in Christ

    • Loved this Brenda! Our inward beauty is what matters! Too much emphasis for sure on cosmetics and bank accounts! We will have neither in Heaven, so why be so concerned by them here! God sees us at our best and all of the times we are at our worst! And His love, loves us both ways!

  4. Thanks for sharing this, Rachel. You’re passing on the wisdom that was spoken to you.

  5. In order to understand and be compassionate, I have to be openminded, openhearted, and live with open hands. Thank you for your beautiful words that resonate in my heart.

  6. Being curious in life is true as I don’t know everything but it’s good to find good things in life. I’ve been going through a Bible study that’s helped my faith to continue to grow stronger. Following God makes me be compassionate to people. Even waving at a couple ladies as I walked by them, in Safeway, made them smile. Looks like they were waiting for someone to take them home. I write stories on my blog with photos. Thanks for your encouragement, Rachel.

  7. My goodness, I just lost my job because of a company infrastructure. While this isn’t my first job loss, it’s still hard.

    As I consider what’s next, I “want” to be hopeful, but it’s still hard.

    “Curious to the End” is the hope that I needed today.

    Life is a journey with both the wins and losses.

    thank you for that shared hope!

    • Oh Dawn, I’m so sorry about your job. I’m also in a season of upheaval…and I’m finding the curiosity sometimes helps to quell the sorrow. Trusting that good things are in store for you. Sending much love!

  8. Little Switzerland, NC is so beautiful!!! No doubt that the environment and the people in it – and the God that is in it ALL – was so inspiring to you! And thank you for passing it on….

  9. Wow, Rachel. This is the word I didn’t know I needed to read today. Thank you so much for this inspiring glimpse into your world. Yes, I do want to stay curious and compassionate until the end. I read something similar not long ago that says the day we stop learning is the day we begin to die. Lord, help me to continue learning to be more like you, and by doing so, others will want to know you.

  10. Thank you for the devotional that are so appropriate for right now. Words of truth and wisdom. My husband went home to Jesus 10 months ago after 52 years and I have been on a downward spiral, but He has brought me back. Praise His mighty name. Blessings

  11. Rachel,

    Curiosity is what keeps us going & growing. The more we learn about our world, the Bible will help us to appreciate this life we’ve been given. God has us all on a journey & we need to follow the path He leads. I’m going to stay curious to learn what He wants to teach me today & always. My curiosity will fuel my compassion to help others.

    Blessings 🙂
