The Rest of the Story

Three weeks ago I wrote about Gideon in Pardon Me. The beginning of Gideon’s story in Judges 6 highlights his weaknesses even after the angel of God called him a mighty warrior. Gideon was no mighty warrior. Not on his own. But God is El Shaddai. God Almighty. from Pardon Me The story gets better.…

Holy Week

For Holy Week, I’m reading through the Scripture which gives me a breakdown of what happened each day. Yesterday was Palm Sunday. Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a colt as the crowds spread their cloaks and branches on the road ahead of him, and rejoiced, ‘Hosanna! Blessed is the King who comes in the name…

Splash

I read one of my favorite Bible passages yesterday and it was like I was reading it for the first time. Maybe it’s because I’m reading a different version but I noticed some words I hadn’t before. The passage is a prayer for the church at Ephesus……a prayer for strength and insight. “For this reason…

When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.” “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of…

Doctor Doctor

I have this thing about going to the doctor. I don’t like it. I don’t like yearly check ups, eye exams, or flu shots……even when I’m sick…….I resist going to the doctor. I’ll ignore my symptoms until I can’t, then I’ll plan my own course of treatment, try an essential oil or a handful of…

You Are a Letter

This week’s Monday School comes from verses I first read and thought about years ago and ones I talked about at a women’s event. I’m thinking about these verses found in 2 Corinthians again. “You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. You show that you are a letter from…

Cast Out But Brought In

I’m back in John 9 for Monday School. Last week I asked if we really see what we need to see. This week, I dive in deeper. John 9 is the story about the healing of the man born blind, but there’s more to the story. According to the text, the blind man didn’t ask…
