The whole earth is FULL of His glory! “We are without excuse!” “For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without […]
Hello Friends! We have a few weeks remaining in our (my church) Women’s Winter Bible Study Session SEAMLESS. Recently, Angie (Smith, the author of the study) shared that she grew up in my home town. (I didnt’ know that!) She actually attended the same school […]
Today’s reading is in Leviticus (11-13) and the Psalms. It is definitely a nice balance. Leviticus is quite challenging to read and hard to understand. A big part of the challenge is cultural, but I think we also suffer the spoiled child syndrome.
In our sin nature and puffed up self, we can easily rationalize our “basic goodness.” “I’m pretty good…I’m definitely better than.______”
We have the luxury of the Holy Spirit…of the great atonement of the cross. We don’t live in the age of rituals…where we might fear that our God will stike us dead if we enter the Holy of Holies. Through His great love, He has “walked through the pieces” for us (Abrahamic Covenant). He is holding up OUR end of the agreement…His sacred covenant to Abraham extends to us and the future generations. Through Christ WE are seen as Holy.
Isn’t that so hard to wrap you’re mind around???!!
Oh what a good Father we have. He is patient, slow to anger, steadfast in love and mercy…and in that great love, willing to give us what we don’t deserve.
I am grateful beyond words for my new life. The old life was dark and dead.
It is with great joy and humbleness that I CAN say I “SING A NEW SONG!”
Thanks so much for taking the time to sit with me awhile:)
Short post here today…on a little trip away with friends, but continuing to read through the Bible which is so timely as I also work through Angie Smith’s study “Seamless.”

Have a blessed weekend ya’ll!
It’s always a good day for a good day:)
As “we” finish the book of Genesis, we’re reminded of Jesus “family tree” as Joseph’s life comes to it’s earthly end.
Jesus complete lineage is a bit confusing …though we do know two things to be ultimately true…
Jesus is the Son of Abraham and the Son of David.
“The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” -Matthew 1:1
”and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.” to Abraham -Genesis 22:18
“Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.” Isaiah 9:7

If you are out there on the same journey (reading the Bible in 1 year) I hope that my posts will be an encouragement to you!
