Under Construction: “Always Before Me” – devotions for women

ALT="under construction sign" Always Before Me devotional book

By Davalynn Spencer @davalynnspencer

In recent months, I’ve had a few requests for copies of my out-of-print devotional book for women, Always Before Me. So remodeling has begun. Additions are framed in, and an open house is set for this spring.

The original book had 30 daily devotional thoughts, scriptures, and prayers, but we’re looking at adding 70 more in the new release. Many of the new inspirations will be taken from this blog. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been writing it for 14 years.

If you read my blog and have a favorite post or two that you’d like to see in my updated devotional book, please let me know. Comment below or drop me an email via davalynn@davalynnspencer.com. If your favorite devotional is included in the new book, I’ll send you a signed copy.

And if these posts have been an encouragement to you, tell your friends and family. They can sign up to receive the blog every Sunday evening by using the sign-up box to the right of this post. (My newsletter and free-book option is just above it.)

Thank you for reading and sharing God’s faithfulness with those around you.


I have set the Lord always before me;
because He is at my right hand,
I shall not be moved.
Psalm 16:8

May all that you read be uplifting.

ALT="The Miracle Tree" cowboy romanceIn answer to her growling stomach, Laura made a cheese, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, sliced an apple, and took the meal and her Bible out to the front swing. As she ate, she thumbed through Isaiah for a verse she’d once read about eagles and wings.

The falling sun spotlighted lesser hills with a bright yellow wash and sent long shadows across Hawthorne pastures. In minutes it slipped away, and the land lay down with a sigh, at rest in the shadowless dusk.

A breeze kicked up and a hushed, breathy sound rasped against the mulberry leaves. Soon the whisper swelled and spread to the roof. Heaven opened and rain fell over the house like a veil, soaking the pastures and trees. Her cows stood unbothered in the downpour.

Setting her Bible aside, she rose and leaned against the railing, then stretched her hands beyond the eaves. Lightning struck across the valley and thunder quickly followed. Two miles away, at most.

She peered through the grainy dusk, finding the spot where the ancient tree stood anchoring that corner of her land. Anchoring her soul. And with a hint of hope, she walked to the end of the porch and down the steps into the rain.

“I think I get it, God.”

Closing her eyes, she opened her arms wide like the hawk, lifted her face, and let her tears mingle with the rain. ~The Miracle Tree   “Captivated from the first chapter.” -Goodreads review
