Monday School

Anyway

God knew I’d doubt Him, but He’s faithful anyway. He knew I would mess up over and over again, but He’s patient with me anyway. God knew I’d judge others, but He’s compassionate towards me. He knew I would be puffed up, stubborn, and rebellious, but He loves me still. Jesus knew every dark thought,…

Every Single One

I needed to know this today and I need to remember it forever. God is near to the brokenhearted. He cares about our pain and sorrow. You have kept count of my tossings;put my tears in your bottle.Are they not in your book? Psalm 56:8 ESV Is someone you love going through a difficult time?…

Unshaken

Monday School is brought to you again by Paul, the self-described chief sinner, grace-saved apostle of Jesus Christ. I read a lot of Paul’s letters – it’s hard not to since 13 of his letters are books in the Bible –  so he inspires many of my Monday School thoughts. Actually this week’s passage is…

Gideon was no mighty warrior. Not on his own. But God is El Shaddai. God Almighty. from Pardon Me The story gets better.…

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…

Pardon Me

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…

Remember the Leftovers

I say if I’d been there to see the miracle of Jesus feeding the 5,000 with five loaves of bread and two fish that I’d follow him faithfully and never doubt anything he said. I would surely never question his promises after seeing him feed another crowd of 4,000 with seven loaves and a few…
