Pestering Heaven

Luke 18:1-8 “Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart, saying, “In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not respect man. “There was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, ‘Give me legal protection from my opponent.’ “For a while he was unwilling; but afterward he said to himself, ‘Even though I do not fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow bothers me, I will give her legal protection, otherwise by continually coming she will wear me out.'” And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge *said; now, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them? “I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” NASB

A Quick Update

Hi everyone! 

First off, please accept my apologies for the lack of blog updates lately. Life has been a bit busy, and I have also been focusing primarily on my first e-book (more information to come in the future), though I have plenty of ideas to blog about!  Hoping to start updating this blog more regularly again though.

 

I also wanted to say a big thank you to all my readers, for your support and encouragement.

 

Finally, I wanted to announce that I will soon be launching a monthly e-newsletter with specific updates on what I am doing each month at School of the Bible. This content will be different than what is posted on the blog, so keep your eyes peeled, as I will be adding a subscription option for that in the very near future.

 

Have a great day!

It Was More Than Just A Footstep

Note: this is a bit of a flashback post, as it was written a year or so ago, but I think it still rings true.

It’s Christmas, the “most wonderful time of the year.”  My favorite season.  I’ve been doing some unexpected thinking this Christmas though-thoughts that came from an odd combination of hearing Christmas songs, and reading a friend’s facebook postings describing the current development of their unborn baby.  Oftentimes the descriptions I hear about Christ coming to earth, either in song or word, make it sound as if it was just a quick step out of Heaven. A long step, yes.  A drastic, humbling step.  But just a step.  As if one minute He was in heaven, and the next minute He was that little baby in the manger.

Something’s Cooking

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the way God acts and reacts with the world He created, how we respond to Him, and how He responds to us.  It’s a two-way relationship, not a one-sided thing.  (As you can see, I’m quite good at stating the obvious.)

I have a lot bubbling up in my brain right now, words that need to be sorted out to be shared on this blog.  I’m excited, but also praying hard that what I write will be clear, and more than that that it will line up with scripture.

Last time I checked, I wasn’t infallible, and I can be as biased as the next person, but there are some things I think I “get” at some level, and I’m planning on writing a lot more about that next week.

For tonight however, things are just cooking inside.  Concepts marinating to be shared shortly.  Thank you everyone for your patience!  (And yes, there will be something fun up tomorrow for Free Form Friday.)
