He Removes the Veil

“But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed.” 2 Corinthians 3:16 Tonight Rick and I read 2 Corinthians chapter 3. This verse stuck out to me. The context is saying that the glory of the New Covenant is more glorious than the Old Covenant. Moses delivered the law on the tablets and had to place a veil over his face because of how bright it was (Exodus 34:34-35), and there is still a veil over those who […]

Small Beginnings

I got an email today about Asheritah’s new book “Jesus is Enough”, which is a Bible study on Colossians. I sat jealous for a minute, thinking something along the lines of, “Well, I guess I won’t be able to create a study on Colossians then,” like she just took the wind out of my sails or something ridiculous like that. As if no one ever before has written about the book of Colossians. As if no one will ever again […]

Blogging again…

So, it seems I am back to the blogging life. Well, at least the writing life. As my newest baby (Judah!) has turned 6 months, I’ve been feeling a little pull, a little tug here and there from the Lord to start writing again. As usual, I have no idea where to start, but He usually shows up once I obey and follow His lead! Unfortunately, time has lapsed since my last blog post…about two years time…and I’ve forgotten how […]

We’re Following the Leader

“Follow Me – and I will make you fishers of men.” ~Matthew 4:19 ” ‘Follow Me,’ He told them.” – Mark 2:14 “My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me.” -John 10:27 “If anyone serves me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there will my servant be also.” ~John 12:26 “Whoever does not take up their cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.” ~Matthew 10:38 “But Jesus told him, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own […]

What Do I Know?

“Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, You are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering Yourself with light as a garment, strethcing out the heavens like a tent.  He lays the beams of His chambers on the waters; He makes the clouds His chariot; He rides on the wings of the wind; He makes His messengers winds, His ministers a flaming fire. He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should […]

Deborah, a Mother in Israel

“Until I, Deborah, arose as a mother in Israel” (Judges 5:7). Israel needed leadership. Deborah apparently stepped up to lead. In Judges 4:4 she is introduced, and we read, “Now Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lappidoth, was judging Israel at that time.” (Judging here is basically the equivalent of “leading”). “She used to sit under the Palm of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the hill country of Ephraim, and the people of Israel came up to her for judgment.”   The […]

He Will Forgive You, Heal You, Redeem You and Crown You

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, o my soul, and forget not all His benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. The Lord works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed. He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the people of Israel. The Lord is merciful and gracious, […]

The Young You May Take for Yourself

Tonight’s verse with the word “mother” is a peculiar one! I must admit I have pondered it for the last 2 and a half hours, in prayer and study. I believe that the Lord showed me a beautiful picture, but I still think I haven’t gotten all that He has hidden here yet. 😉 Deuteronomy 22:6-7 “If you come across a bird’s nest in any tree or on the ground, with young ones or eggs and the mother sitting on the young […]

The Power of Christ Will Soon Crush Satan

As I settle in to write tonight, I kind of feel…restless. I’ve been searching through the next few verses that mention “mother” but nothing is standing out to me to share! I’ve been praying all day for ideas from the Lord, but haven’t gotten much. I do know, however, that sometimes the Lord likes to make me wait until the last minute so I will keep asking, keep seeking and keep knocking. I’m going to just start writing and see […]

God’s First Mention of Mothers

Happy March! As I mentioned yesterday, this month I plan on doing 30 blog posts – one per day, with one day for leeway. I’m going to study the word “mother” in the Bible. I hope to learn and share with you insights from the word about this person, this role of “mother”. Each of us had a mother, is a mother, or knows someone who is a mother. Or, of course, a combination of all three! OK actually everyone […]
