Learning to Be Still

My family and some of my kids’ friends, spent part of last weekend at my parents’ house. On Saturday afternoon, we did one of my very favorite activities.

Don’t Panic, Pray

Our sermon last Sunday, was from Exodus 17. It was about the Israelites traveling in the wilderness. The first verse says they traveled from place to place as the Lord commanded. At first glance, it looks like they were doing exactly what they should. They were following God’s lead. Only one chapter earlier, God provided … Continue reading »

I sat in on an adult Sunday school class a few weeks ago. They are journeying through Genesis, one of my favorite books of the Bible. There’s just so much that happens in that book. The world gets created. Humanity gets created. Humanity falls. The flood occurs and all kinds of other major events. On … Continue reading »

Not Natural, Supernatural

At the weekly Bible study that I attend, we have been talking about the Gospel of Matthew. This week we were talking about the, “eye for an eye” and the “love your enemies,” part found in chapter five.

The Light After the Darkness

The Bible study that my hubby and I attend, recently focused on the temptation of Jesus, out in the wilderness, found in Matthew. There are certain aspects of that account, that always jump out at me. One is that Satan doesn’t even go after Jesus until He’s at His weakest, nothing to eat for forty … Continue reading »

Prepare the Way

My hubby and I have been attending a Bible study at our church. This one is focusing on the close relationship between the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament and the Book of Isaiah in the Old Testament. It’s fascinating stuff.

Choosing Peace

Lately our world has been very chaotic. It’s as if somehow the spirit of division and unrest has picked up a megaphone and refused to be silenced. Peace seems like a far away dream at the moment and it is, if we focus on the earthly battles raging 24/7 on our televisions. But, what if … Continue reading »

Gideon Inspiration

Last Sunday, my pastor told Gideon’s story. It’s found in Judges 6-8. It picks up where once again, Israel had turned their backs on God, and once again, tragedy had befallen them. The Midianites were stealing their crops every year and killing their cattle, leaving them to starve. Once again, when things got bad enough, … Continue reading »
