I See the Water, and I Hear the Horses…

I have to admit that the phrase, "I see the water and hear the horses," is one that I have swiped from a lady in my Sunday School class.  When I read her comment on facebook, it really got my attention.  You see Moses was given the direction to flee Egypt, so he did.  Moses didn't have all the directions, all the details and definitely not all the answers for everyone else who was relying on him.  All he had was the direction from God almighty to GO! Most of the the time when God gives direction to go or a situation rises, we have to just trust Him to work out the details.  That is faith!  If we knew the beginning from the end and all that would happen in between, we would have no reason to trust God.  The more we trust, the more our faith muscle is strengthened and the better shape we will be in the next time we have to use our faith muscle. Craig (my husband) and I have been through more than our share of "flexing our faith muscle."  Each time we see God work it out, we ...

Kill em’ with King’s Kindness

In 2 Samuel Chapter 9 David has finally become king after a calling that came when he was twelve.  In Chapter 9 David asks a very peculiar question, "Is there anyone left of the house of Saul, that I may show kindness of God?"  Most kings in David's day tried to wipe out any family members of previous kings so that there would be no chance of an uprising.  Well, it turns out that David's best friend, Jonathan had a crippled son named Mephibosheth.  David sent for him and brought him to the palace (or whatever you want to call the place where David and all his servants lived).  I have a feeling that when Mephibosheth heard that the king wanted to see him...it couldn't be good news.  When Mephibosheth got there it was DAVID who fell to his face and told him, "I am YOUR servant." Can you imagine in during those days crippled people were total outcasts?  The modern conviences that we have in the twenty first century were just not available...by a LONG shot.  Most crippled people ...

A Servants Heart

Yesterday I had new pictures taken for my website.  This is not something that I was looking forward to doing.  You know the self doubt that plays in your head...I need to lose weight, I am going to look fat, etc.  A friend of mine (that I have known for many years) heard me talking about the fact that I needed to have new pictures take.  We were all in the back row of choir practice talking, well maybe whispering, but certainly not singing (oops!), and Wendy offered to take my pictures for me. Wendy has been a florist for many years and in the last year or so has decided to take on another creative outlet...photography.  I had no idea how many hours she has been studying photography over the last year.  I had seen some of her early work and it was pretty good.  The fact that she wanted to "practice" on me, I figured why not?  So yeaterday was the day.  All I can say is that this gal is amazing.  God has blessed her with an eye for detail and light that creates beautiful pictures.  ...

The first step belongs to you

In I Samuel 14 the Israelites were facing a huge battle with the Phillistines.   The Phillistines had a huge army that included 30,000 chariots, 6,000 horseman and the Bible says "and people like the sand which is on the seashore in abundance."  I'm just saying...that is a lot of people!  In contrast the Israelites, under Saul's leadership had 600 in his army.  Was a victory for the Israelites even possible under the BEST circumstances?  Only with God's help, that's for sure. In chapter 14 Jonathan has an overwhelming feeling to go to the camp of the Phillistines and do a little battle.  Jonathan who was Saul's first born son should have been the next in line for the throne...the King.  As it was David had already been annointed to be the next King after Saul.  I don't know about you but I think this would have been a tough pill to swallow.  Jonathan however was a bigger person and had the heart of a true team player.  Jonathan just wanted to be on the winning team, Gods team ...
