fall to the ground.....?

This morning I was reminded again that there are seasons when God's word is not shall we say... abounding.... When Samuel was a young boy 'The word of the Lord was RARE. There were not many visions.' 1 Sam 3:1-10 Visions was obviously one of the major ways God communicated to his people throughthe prophets. But... Read More

I have been feeling antsy the last couple of days. Irritable, frustrated... mostly on the inside... until something happens that really bugs me (like spilling a tray of roasted vegies all over the BBQ and deck.....  grrr...) Chatted with my mens group yesterday about it. They prayed for me to have God reveal the... Read More

Mama's prayers...

This morning I was enjoying 'listening to Paul' talk to his friends in the church at Galatia. He tells a bit of his story....  Gal 1:11-24 I have been thinking about that.  When Christ met him on the road to DamascusHe asked Paul, "Why are you kicking against the goads?" Acts 9:4-5Goads were sharp sticks used to... Read More

Words from God

This morning I continue to think about the WORDs of God.... Put on tablets of stone for Moses to give to the people.Communicated through Moses as God's prophet (one who speaks God's words). No other religion No other faith can claim these events - God actually writing words to people. - God actually speaking to...

Alphabet soup?

This morning I read a statement made by Moses when he was retelling the nation the laws of God (Deuteronomy = 2nd law). I thought the statement was made by Jesus (it was) Matt 4:4 and Lk 4:4  but I had forgotten that it was rooted in what Moses was telling the people about God's instructions to them.  Manna was...

New instructions.... for an old path.

This morning I went for a walk.  Ran too far last week and am still pretty sore.... so just walked.... :/ It was dark for about an hour so had a flashlight.... While I was in the park I wondered if I might have a surprise meeting with a bear or cougar...  so that was slightly unnerving...  and I was listening to...

Your Kingdom come, on earth.....

This morning I was out for a run and listening to Jesus talk about Heaven (as recorded by Matthew). I actually 'woke up' to the amazing thought that someone from Heaven sat down with some folks and told them what it is like..... Wow. It made me think of C.S. Lewis' book series of Narnia....Entering into the... Read More

Death of the old things.... I was curious the things... Read More
